What do you think will happen when Republicans get to frame the election as a choice between center-right/populist economics and progressive/socialist economics not because that’s the best ground for them to fight on but because it’s exactly the battle the Democrats asked for?
“Elizabeth Warren wants to take away your health insurance.”
“Elizabeth Warren wants to force your children into failing schools.”
“Elizabeth Warren wants to raise your taxes for government-run health care and government-run education.”
“Who do you trust to make the best medical and education decisions for your household: your doctors and your family, or Elizabeth Warren’s government?”
Can Warren defend this ground successfully? I don’t know. Maybe? But why would she want to?
