Here on the People’s Politics, we are the Suncoast Democrats. We believe in a vibrant and active Federal Government that promotes policies to guarantee a Living Wage, Healthcare as a Right not a Privilege, Democracy and not Oligarchy, free tuition at Public Colleges and Universities, Paid Family Leave and a Secure Retirement for all Americans. In the wealthiest country on this planet, this is the least that we can do for our citizens.
