Candidates Clash in First TV Debate

The debate only reinforced my opinion that Dukakis is going to take us back to the days of President Carter with his very liberal social programs and no fiscal policy of how to implement them without raising taxes or cutting defense. Would somebody please tell me how he did all those wonderful things in Massachusetts that he claims--he certainly never mentions it. Or is Massachusetts really so well off today--there are many people from that state who do not agree with that premise. I was forced to leave Massachusetts because the plant where I was working was forced to close and there were just no jobs available. This was almost two years ago.
