Joe Conason on Hillary's commitment to transparency
Journalist Joe Conason points out that Hillary Clinton has not only released her tax return for the most recent tax year -- but every year going back over 30 years. Meanwhile Donald Trump, having released no tax returns whatsoever, is given a pass by a lazy and/or complicit media.
We just adopted the most progressive platform in party history. Five things you should know.
The party just voted for the most progressive platform ever, sending a powerful message about the values Democrats share—and the progress they’ll fight to achieve.
The platform includes:
- An unprecedented commitment to equal rights for LGBT Americans
- The strongest pledge ever to fight climate change
- A bold new commitment to debt-free college
- A first-of-its-kind pledge to fight institutional racism and end mass incarceration
- Ambitious policies to help working families get ahead
This year’s platform not only includes the most ambitious jobs plan on record, it addresses the challenges working families face in the 21st century—calling for raising and indexing the federal minimum wage and the elimination of “tipped” wages, equal pay for women, national paid family and medical leave, and investments in affordable child care.
