1. On the economy:

Mr. O’Malley has focused his economic message on income inequality and his belief that the financial sector is too concentrated, exposing the nation to unnecessary risks. He wants to break up the nation’s biggest banks and reinstate a version of the Glass-Steagall Act, which prevented commercial banks from engaging in investment banking business. (The law was repealed under President Bill Clinton.) Mr. O’Malley also says he wants to expand Social Security benefits, and would pay for the expansion by subjecting annual incomes above $118,500 to Social Security taxes. He opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty, which would reduce tariffs with nations across the Pacific Rim, and — eyeing Mrs. Clinton, who has avoided taking a clear position on it — said American workers whose jobs could be threatened by the agreement “deserve to know where leaders stand.”
