The 2016 elections will be a defining moment for whether America's retirement safety net stays or goes. It's critical that American voters of all ages demand that candidates for president and Congress -- Republicans and Democrats -- are held accountable for policies which will impact generations of American families.
Voters are likely to remain dubious about candidates who offer only vague platitudes about key issues like jobs, wages, and trade without making firm commitments or offering specific proposals. The Maryland race has just begun, of course. But so far, it seems to point to the pitfalls of corporate "centrism" -- and the promise of economic populism.
