Statement: Our campaign is based on the notion that Americans are
stronger together. We're stronger when everyone can contribute to the economy
and share in its growth. We're stronger when we work with each other - and with
allies around the world - to keep America secure. And we're stronger when we're
united, not divided; when we come together to overcome the challenges we face.
If we win this November, in our first 100 days, we'll
make the biggest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II. We'll
invest in infrastructure, manufacturing, and small businesses. We'll make
America the clean energy superpower of the 21st century to take on
the threat of climate change, and create jobs in the process. And we'll pay for
our plans by making Wall Street, corporations, and the super-wealthy pay their
fair share in taxes.
We'll make college debt-free for all and tuition-free
for the middle class, while helping millions of people with student debt. We'll
crack down on companies that ship jobs overseas, and we'll reward companies
that share profits with their employees. We'll create policies that help people
balance work and family. And we'll bring opportunity to communities that have
been left out and left behind.
Beyond the economy, we'll take on other urgent challenges-from
reforming our broken criminal justice and immigration systems to ending the
epidemic of gun violence to getting unaccountable money out of politics.
Americans aren't just electing a president; we're also
choosing a Commander-in-Chief. We've laid out a comprehensive strategy to keep
America safe by defeating ISIS, standing with our allies, and respecting those
who serve our country.
We know that America's best days are still ahead of us.
When Americans come together, there's nothing we can't do. That's what our
campaign is all about.
