Examples of policies in a Sentence

  1. Phil Murphy:

    You look at this womans story, and it makes you sick -- the lack of the structure in our society, the lack of respect for survivors, so, my goals are to figure out what happened, lets get our government policies the very best they can be, lets make New Jersey broadly ... a society that people look up to and say, They respect survivors unlike anybody else. Lets keep politics out of it.

  2. Marc Levine:

    Essentially we've been surfing on the national recovery, the idea was that Wisconsin policies are better than the national policies and we were going to move ahead of the national rate. That clearly hasn't happened.

  3. Brett Healy:

    The accusation is so juvenile and ludicrous it cannot be taken seriously, if this rumor was even remotely credible, someone here in Wisconsin would have alerted the media and filed a complaint with the Elections Commission. Rural Wisconsin voters, who have a history of voting Democrat in presidential elections, decided that they had enough of the far left policies of President Obama and they took it out on Clinton. For the Democratic Party to attempt to blame their widespread defeat on an imaginary bogeyman is comical and a little sad.

  4. Leah Askarinam:

    Gubernatorial candidates can campaign on issues that are state-specific like the states budget and education funding -- and they can cross party lines without facing the same kind of political pressure as Senate candidates who have to work with a national legislature, weve seen candidates like John Bel Edwards support state policies that limit abortion access, for example, which is a much more difficult stance to take as a Democrat in the Senate.

  5. Bernie Sanders:

    My strong hope is that Secretary Clinton and all candidates, Republicans and Congressional Democrats, will make it clear that the Trans-Pacific Partnership should be rejected and that we must develop trade policies that benefit working families, not just Wall Street and multi-national corporations.
