Immigration reform executive order, rural council, sub-sarahan Africa, Shimon Perez, health care, jobs, small business, and competing views of America’s future set out in Ohio – here’s ours – President Obama believes America prospers when hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone gets a fair shot, does their fair share and plays by the same set of rules. To create jobs, reduce our deficit and build a stronger economy from the middle class out, President Obama believes we need to do the following:
o Education: Invest in good teachers and help more students go to college and get job training – not pack kids into crowded classrooms and slash scholarships.
o Energy: Invest in promising sources of energy, like wind, solar, clean coal, biofuels, nuclear and natural gas, to create a market for innovation and good jobs of the future – not go back to relying on foreign oil or subsidizing Big Oil.
o Innovation: Invest in our best scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs so they innovate here – not cede leadership to countries like China and India.
o Infrastructure: Rebuild our roads, bridges, ports and broadband technology to attract businesses and create jobs here – not pet projects, bridges to nowhere and crumbling infrastructure.
o Tax Reform: Reward businesses that create jobs here instead of those that send them overseas, and must ask the wealthiest to contribute their fair share again – not give millionaires another tax break at the expense of the middle class.
