Another Debate

Posted By Jill Greenberg On January 30, 2008 @ 9:36 pm In Bulletin Today,Washington Watch | No Comments

I am grateful that we are coming to the end of the primary debate season. Why? Tonight’s debate was certainly a little more heated than last week’s snoozer in Florida, but it unfortunately focused little on substance and more on the intra-party warfare that has just become tedious.

There was some talk about the economy, an issue that is overwhelmingly important for everyone. But instead of talking about how to bring relief, the discussion was brought back to finger pointing and he said/he said rhetoric. People want to hear about solutions, not accusations. There was no real mention of how the candidates are going to tackle skyrocketing health care costs or how they will be able to prepare for their future financially.

There is just one week left before a huge number of voters will flock to the polls. Let’s hope there will be a more substantive discussion on the issues that people care about and impact their lives.
