28. On the one hand Sanders is going around telling people he wants to "expand" Social Security....

....which can only mean MORE people, which is essentially impossible, so an empty promise.

On the other hand Clinton wants to "enhance" Social Security, which means she wants to improve the benefits that some or all on Social Security are receiving.

It's only one word, but with huge implications. The first is an empty promise that really means nothing, the other is a improvement on the system and the benefits for those receiving Social Security benefits, like my wife and I.
