On Wednesday and Thursday, 20 Democratic candidates hoping to unseat President Trump in 2020 debated in two 10-person groups. They covered a range of topics, including immigration, health care, the economy, and education/student debt.
At The Heritage Foundation we have solutions, we know our proposals will work, and we are confident that they will expand liberty in this country. Outlined below are our solutions to each of the important topics mentioned.
- Immigration – Immigration is one of the fundamental building blocks that help make America the unique nation that it is. But the debate over border security and immigration has become toxic.

- Health care – Most Americans agree that the health care system in the United States is in need of an overhaul. But the solution is not to emulate the models found in Europe and Canada. Instead, health care should put patients and doctors in the driver’s seat: America’s Biggest Issues: Health Care
- The economy – Despite what naysayers might tell you, the U.S. economy is booming. The way to expand wealth and prosperity to more Americans is not through more government programs, but by expanding the one thing that can achieve this: economic freedom.
- Education/student debt – As stated by Heritage President Kay Coles James, “Colleges and universities are failing us. Students are often subject to socialist ideology, they’re not set up for career success, and they can’t pay off the debt they’ve accumulated.” Here is the solution to fix this broken system: America’s Biggest Issues: Education
