You missed Headline #4 and where Republicans ALWAYS seem to miss it.
$16 Trillion is so big that no person can relate to it. Republicans MUST connect the number to the average person. $16 TRILLION means over $50,000 in debt for every American man, woman, and child. That equates to 2 new cars, or a down payment on a fairly nice middle class home.
Republicans seem to ALWAYS struggle with connecting the dots to how things hurt the everyday person.
