ON THE ISSUES
America is a great country, but we face very serious challenges that we need to solve if we’re going to pass on a better, brighter and stronger nation to our kids and grandkids. The most pressing issue before us is getting the economy moving again. Our national unemployment rate is still unacceptably high. Millions of Americans remain out of work, or are stuck in part-time jobs when they would prefer full-time employment. Middle-class families are hurting as they struggle to make ends meet. They’re worried about their future, and that of their children and grandchildren.
