An Interview With Lori Saldana, Candidate For The New Congressional District 52

Ruth: What do you think this election is about? Lori:  If you paid attention to the coverage, you’d think it was about parties and personalities. Who is up? Who is down? Who has a Million Dollars? But if you look around, you will realize it is really about middle class families. Extremists in Washington have been dismantling the policy infrastructure that allowed the greatest expansion of the Middle Class in our history. The Ryan Act and attempts to privatize Social Security and ‘reform’ Medicare are only the latest assaults. Americans are sliding out of the Middle Class at an alarming rate, as a result of policies supported by Brian Bilbray and the other Republicans.
