About last night 👊
As @nationmag noted about last night’s debate, “This is what happens when more than one woman is running for president.”
What happened was a subtle moment in which two candidates essentially tag-teamed former Vice President Joe Biden on his record on women’s issues.
During a pointed exchange between Biden and Senator @kirstengillibrand over what Biden meant when he wrote, in 1981, that women working outside the home were contributing to “the deterioration of the family,” the moderator interrupted to bring in Sen. @kamalaharris.
Harris used her time not to change the subject to her own talking points, but to continue Gillibrand’s fight to hold Biden to account, this time on reproductive rights. In doing so, Harris also ignored Biden’s request to her, caught on mic at the debate’s opening, to “go easy on me, kid.”
Were Gillibrand to have been the only woman up there, the moderator’s intervention would likely have saved Biden’s blushes. As another journalist pointed out this week even before the debate, “having six women running for president changes everything.”

Question: what are YOUR opinions about bringing back the CCC? Please answer in the comments below :) The CCC (Civilians Conservation Corps) was made by President Roosevelt in 1933 as a way to aid in pulling America out of the great depression. It was originally for unmarried, unemployed men between the ages of 18 and 25, however it later expanded to men between the ages of 17 and 28. It was a major part of the new deal Roosevelt proposed and took off and held around 300,000 young men at any given time, by the time of its disbandment, over 3 million men had participated in the CCC. Each man was paid $30 dollars a month (the equivalent to $580 now) and at least $25 of it had to be sent home to their families. The job of the CCC was to work on and build environmental projects. This could be anything from planting trees, renovating parks, or building railways for trains. What would it mean if we were to bring it back like Senator Cory Booker (democratic candidate) would like to? Given that Senator Booker would like to plant 15 BILLION trees by the year 2050, the CCC would be an amazing way of both providing jobs for those in need of them, and of speeding up so we reach that goal quicker. His plan which he refers to as “Massive Reforestation” is endorsed by over 60 farmer, environmental and forestry organizations, is expected to cost $260 billion over the course of 10 years, which is only a small price to pay for the wellbeing of our planet. —————
