Washington, DC (June 27, 2019) – Tonight, ten Democrats running for President squared off in the second debate of the 2020 campaign.
“Two debates, two Twilight Zone episodes. With America continuing to experience the best economy in 50 years, Democrats continue to push for high-tax, big-spending, socialist policies that would kill jobs and bankrupt our country. When even a so-called ‘moderate’ like Joe Biden is promising to fully repeal the Trump tax cuts, it’s clear Democrats are tripping over themselves to embrace the far-left even if it means punishing job creators and taxpayers. ‘Medicare for All,’ ‘free college’ and a $15 minimum wage would be equally devastating for our economy. With unemployment near a record low and wage growth remaining white-hot, we should be doubling down on the free-market policies that work, not rallying to the siren song of socialism.”
During tonight’s debate, JCN aired a uniquely powerful TV ad featuring a survivor of socialism: Dina Rubio, a Florida small business owner and JCN member who fled socialist Nicaragua during the 1980’s and is now deeply concerned about the Democrats’ socialist agenda. The 60-second ad gave a personal touch and ran in Miami on Telemundo and in Washington, DC on MSNBC during the debate. To watch the ad, click here.
