From Social Security to college tuition to mandatory paid leave, Democratic leaders have spoken about the many federal programs they'd like to expand in their remarks before delegates at the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

But one issue they (and GOP'ers at the Republican National Convention) have failed to address is the staggering $19.4 trillion debt.

Reason TV caught up with Democratic delegates at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA during the DNC to find out what new federal programs they'd like to see, how they planned on paying for them, and if they were concerned about the country's growing national debt.

Approximately 5 minutes.
