Creating Economic Opportunity
Congress must rededicate itself to restoring the American middle class.
On the issue of globalization, we should consider implementing a border adjustment (“BAT”) tax on imports that undermine domestic manufacturing.
We should pursue federal support of key “clean energy” products and initiatives here at home that will drive the economy of the future.
We must make college and secondary education, including junior college and technical training, more affordable and available to all Americans.
We also must increase the federal minimum wage to a reasonable level.
