11. Yes it was a mandate. It was a mandate against racism and sexism. It was also a mandate to

Preserve social security and Medicare, and not to privitize them

It was a mandate for equal pay for equal work, and for the 2% wealthiest to pay the tax rate over 250k when Clinton was president. It is a mandate to get us out of Afghanistan and give companies incentives to keep and create jobs here.

It was a mandate for financial regulation, single payer healthcare, and much more

The real question is were they heard. Which is why we the people need to make sure to let their representatives, senators, and president know
