Prosperous AND Shared Economy

Terms, Concepts & Phrases

There are some terms, concepts, and phrases that we can make commonly understood.  This language forms the fundamental argument behind our specific policies. We can highlight the common thread showing voters how Democrats are fighting for them no matter where they live or what they do.  Arming voters with these concepts allows them to distinguish between good or bad policies or candidates.  Arming our base energizes them and makes them better advocates.  The more we use these concepts and phrases, the faster we change the national debate to include how we work to help all Americans.
