Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Back to Work

Hillary Clinton is the daughter of a small-business owner and the granddaughter of a Scranton, Pennsylvania factory worker.  Her mission in the White House will be to make our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top.

Hillary will press Congress to make college tuition-free for the middle class.  She’ll push to free millions of people who already have student debt by making it easier to refinance and repay what they owe as a portion of their income.

She believes that every family should be able to tell their children, that if they work hard, they’ll be able to give their children the opportunities they deserve.

Voters need to ask themselves the following four questions:
1. Which candidate has a specific plan to create good-paying jobs?
2. Which candidate will restore fairness to our economy and ensure that those at the top pay their fair share of taxes?
3. Which candidate will fight for working families?  
4. Which, candidate will be able to bring members of Congress together to deliver results that will make a difference in their lives?

Economic experts predict that Trump’s agenda would pull our economy back into recession.  Trump’s plan to cut taxes for the wealthy and corporations, initiate a trade war with China, and deport undocumented immigrant consumer, which would result in the loss of 3.4 million jobs.  Reportedly, Hillary Clinton’s economic plan would create more than 10 million new jobs.

Hillary believes that every American willing to work hard should be able to find a job that provides dignity, pride and decent pay that can support a family.  Her plan begins by putting Americans to work building and modernizing roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, ports, and airports.  Today, most of our infrastructure investments were made by our grandparents’ generations.
