Andrew Yang Explains What’s Wrong With The U.S. Economy At 2nd Democratic Debate
Democratic candidate Andrew Yang got a few big moments at Wednesday night’s Democratic debate to tell voters that he has a better economic plan than former Vice President Joe Biden – and President Donald Trump.
Yang pointed out that in “rust belt states” mental health issues have “gotten so bad that American life expectancy has declined for the past three years” despite a record breaking economy.

How do we beat Trump? We bring together people of every political ideology and focus on building an economy that works for all of us regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum. That's what I'm doing, and that's why I'll win this election. #DemDebate2 pic.twitter.com/4TLF3T9yaS

Yang noted that contributions of those like his wife, who stays home to care for their autistic son are not counted in GDP numbers. “That’s the opposite of the truth,” he said, “her work is among the most challenging and vital. The things that matter to… all of us, like our own health, our well being, our mental health, our clean air and clean water, how our kids are doing.”
