But Murphy also said that Democrats must do more to convince voters they have plans to boost the economy -- promoting “economic fairness” rather than broader growth is missing the mark. And Democrats can’t simply depend on voters defecting from the GOP over the array of legal and political woes involving Trump and his circle.Yeah I agree with Sen. Murphy that "economic fairness" misses the mark. Economic fairness only works when people are already okay with socialism or don't have much money to tax. If a person built a successful business or makes a good living it sounds like it means they will tax you more to give freebies to some other person.
A Democratic message of job creation through middle class and small business tax cuts might be a winner. Grab onto the GOP tax reform effort and shape it toward their own voters. Maybe put in a federal minimum wage onto the cuts or maybe bigger earned income tax credits for families. I would love to see a so-called "Democratic Growth plan" if such a thing exists. The bad part is some leftist economists think growth is bad. So good luck getting to 3% GDP growth and all the good that will bring the country as a whole if that is the prevailing argument.
