Tonight, something very special in political history will take place. Actually, what I'm talking about will be special on many fronts - not just the political one. But to get to the point, tonight, from 7 pm to 9 pm, CNN's Anderson Cooper will be hosting the CNN*YouTube debates.
Tonight's CNN*YouTube debates will only include Democratic candidates. (The Republicans will be featured on September 17th.) This forum will allow YouTube users to make themselves heard by the people who could potentially shape America's future. And although the YouTubers have submitted questions that will cover a broad range of topics, on this blog, I will attempt to distill some of their answers to questions regarding your pocketbook.
What do I mean by this? I mean that I will summarize the first and second tier Democratic candidates' positions on making college more affordable; making healthcare more accessible/decreasing the level of uninsured and underinsured in this country; how they intend to resolve the federal budget deficit and restore to health social safety net programs like Social Security.
Be sure to come back later today (around 11 pm) for commentary and analysis of all these things. Thanks for reading and until later tonight....
