WASHINGTON, Oct. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the Indiana Star just out, Robert Weiner, a former Clinton and Bush White House spokesman, and Michael Hariman, policy analyst at Robert Weiner Associates and Solutions for Change, outline Trump's foreign policy, arguing that while Trump's substance may be sound, Trump's tone is lacking. "With Trump's unpredictability, flamboyant rhetoric and tweets in a dangerous world, Lugar's guidance on tone is more important than ever for the administration – and Trump himself," Weiner and Hariman state. The two interviewed former Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Richard Lugar (R-Ind), who told them about President Trump that he has substantive points, but "the tone is something to pursue when you are looking at the faces of world leaders.''
"First Time In Years: A Real Chance to Save Healthcare," say Robert Weiner and Ben Lasky in LaborPress
Robert Weiner, a former Clinton White House spokesman and spokesman for the House Government Operations Committee and Ben Lasky, a senior policy analyst at Weiner Public News and Solutions for change write, "The mandatory CBO report found that the bill would cover more people and still cut the deficit. Clinton and Trump voters alike, as well as everybody else in the US, all go to the hospital, see their doctors for checkups and need medical attention. The bill restores the subsidies for that President Trump abolished by executive order on Oct. 12. Other long term solutions are being discussed and have a great deal of merit—public option, single payer, Medicare for all, and more. But first, we have to protect what we have." They say Alexander-Murray does that, and Trump told Alexander to push the bill which protects millions of middle and lower incomes from losing health care and the government subsidies. "No party" want to faced that in the 2018 midterms. But now President Trump is all over the map.
"Youth Can Impact 2018 Elections—IF They Turn Out," argue Robert Weiner and Christina McDowell in The Georgetowner
Robert Weiner, who was director of youth voter registration for National Young Democrats at the Watergate Democratic National Headquarters during the 1972 presidential campaign, and a public-affairs director in the Clinton White House and Christina McDowell, a policy analyst for Weiner Public News and Solutions for Change write: "On November 6th 2018, all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate will be up for re-election. Democrats might have a shot at flipping Congress—if they get youth to the polls. In a youth culture obsessed with celebrity and image, they need both a charismatic speech about issues they care about, and 140 characters and a filtered photograph. The future of democracy depends on it." They say youth turnout has been as high as 55% but only in the 1972 election, where they faced life or death with a draft for the Vietnam War.
