"The rest of them, with a little bit of reality injected, can be adjusted to appeal to moderates, including the billionaire tax, the alternative corporate profit tax, money for the opioid crisis, PR and Student Loan debt relief and regulating BigAg and BigTech. That doesn't mean that any of them become reality, my point is that she can refine them to move to the middle for the GE.

She is a bigger empty suit that Obama - literally zero accomplishments that were not directly tied to being a female, Native American minority.
I am actually 100% in favor of her billionaire tax - but that has zero chance of passing. If you look at the ideological breakdown of the super wealthy (tech titan types that actively donate to campaigns), they are usually on the Left. No matter how many sound bites guys like Buffett give about how tax RATES are unfair - he does not willing pay an extra cent in taxes and actively hides his wealth through charitable donations so it is never taxed. How do you think he will respond to a tax - not on rates - but on wealth and would cost him hundreds of millions of dollars a year? It is nonsensical to think the Democrat party would ever actually try to get this passed.
As for the opioid crisis - the Dem response has enabled it to get worse, not better. We need border controls, sanctions on China for Fentanol production, and forced treatment/police intervention - not needle exchanges and sanctuary drug cities. Look at San Fran, look at Seattle, look at LA or Portland. Nothing but Left wing policies and they are suffering from a homelessness crisis fueled by substance abuse. San Fran's response to the opioid crisis has been increase spending on human feces and needle clean up - it HAS NOT SOLVED A DAMN THING. Again, entirely predictable.
As for student loan forgiveness - ridiculous. We need to address the cost of college first and foremost and forgiving debt will only make its cost balloon more. Students need to live like students (no car or luxuries), work part time at the schools/summer - and the government needs to lower the cost of attending. Free is ridiculous - you are just rewarding the lazy.
As for big Tech regulation - again - good luck with that. All the big social media companies which actually need regulation and their status changed to publisher from portals actively support the Democrats. So, again, good luck trying to change how they are regulated.
