Majority of voters favor gasoline-car phaseout. But all-electric goal faces tough opposition.
The day after the midterm elections, two of the major Democratic Party presidential candidates had little to say about the results. Neither, of course, expected Donald Trump to win the White House but they each made statements indicating they did not expect to be the party’s nominee themselves.

She is all in on getting rid of student debt and thinks it’s unfair that college graduates aren’t able to pay down their debt because they’re not allowed to deduct student debt from their taxable income.
She says that the US should take over the Trans-Pacific Partnership and have it implemented by the Pacific Alliance countries rather than
