confused an angry this morning. how can i say no to this.. only to get this? the drama.. continues. scott/vo full back here at home democratic presidental candidate hillary clinton will make a major economic address today. explaining many of her economic strategies. reports say she will lash out at the contractor economy.. the ubers and the lyfts and the task rabbits.. ==boxes== ==sam/anim== happening now: ==sam/vo== almost 50-million this has been tact debated in dourts and the political field, s as well.
