In their opening comments, Walt Minnick and Raul Labrador both agreed on one thing - that the country is in trouble. "The solutions to these problems are complex, they take time, they take hard decisions and don't lend themselves to politically expedient soundbites," Minnick said. "And most importantly they take bipartisan consensus, because they need to come from the middle." Labrador said, "It's his party that has destroyed the future of this country. I believe that we need to do something that is different."
