Hillary's vision for America

During her 2016 campaign for president, Hillary and her team laid out a comprehensive progressive vision for America’s future.


**A fair tax system
Making sure the wealthy, Wall Street, and corporations pay their fair share in taxes.

**Addiction and substance use
Through improved treatment, prevention, and training, we can end this quiet epidemic once and for all.

**An economy that works for everyone
We need to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.

**An end to Alzheimer’s disease
We can prevent, effectively treat, and make an Alzheimer’s cure possible by 2025.

**Autism
Millions of Americans live with autism—and we’ve got to do more to support them and their families.

**Campaign finance reform
Our democracy should work for everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

**Campus sexual assault
It’s not enough to condemn campus sexual assault. We need to end it.

**Climate change
Taking on the threat of climate change and making America the world’s clean energy superpower.

**Combating terrorism and keeping the homeland safe
It’s not enough to contain ISIS and the threat of terrorism—we have to defeat it.

**Criminal justice reform
Our criminal justice system is out of balance.

**Disability rights
We must continue to expand opportunities for Americans with disabilities.

**Early childhood education
Every child deserves the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential.

**Fixing America’s infrastructure
Strong infrastructure is critical to a strong economy.

**Gun violence prevention
We can—and must—end the epidemic of gun violence.

**Health care
Universal, quality, affordable health care for everyone in America

**HIV and AIDS
We have reached a critical moment in our fight against HIV and AIDS.

**Housing
We need housing policies that connect working families to opportunity.

**Immigration reform
We need comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship.

**Jobs and wages
We can make the boldest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II.

**K-12 education
Strong public education is the key to preparing our children for the future.

**Labor and workers’ rights
When unions are strong, America is strong.

**LGBT rights and equality
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans deserve to live their lives free from discrimination.

**Making college debt-free and taking on student debt
Hillary will make debt-free college available to everyone and take on student loan debt.

**Manufacturing
Hillary Clinton’s plan to strengthen manufacturing so we always “Make it in America.”

**Mental health
We have to address the mental health crisis in America and end the stigma and shame associated with treatment.

**Military and defense
We should maintain the best-trained, best-equipped, and strongest military the world has ever known.

**National security
With policies that keep us strong and safe, America will lead the world in the 21st century.
National service
Do all the good you can.

**Paid family and medical leave
It’s time to guarantee paid family and medical leave in America.

**Poverty
No child should ever have to grow up in poverty.

**Protecting animals and wildlife
The way our society treats animals is a reflection of our humanity.

**Racial justice
America’s long struggle with race is far from finished.

**Rural communities
America’s rural communities are the backbone of this country.

**Small business
We have to level the playing field for America’s small businesses.

**Social Security and Medicare
We must preserve, protect, and strengthen these lifelines.

**Technology and innovation
We can harness the power of technology and innovation to work for all Americans.

**Veterans, the armed forces, and their families
America must fully commit to supporting veterans.

**Voting rights
We should be making it easier to vote, not harder.

**Wall Street reform
Wall Street must work for Main Street.

**Women’s rights and opportunity
We need to break down barriers that hold women back.

**Workforce skills and job training
Every American should be able to learn the skills they need to compete and succeed.
----------------
In case anyone missed her impressive platform of "The Four Fights", you can read it here:

We should have had THIS right now. NO ONE had a better policy plan for America's future.
NO ONE even came close & her vote #'s proved that.

Gave me a good laugh: after reading ed's ironical (or so it seemed to me) quote I clicked Abdul's link – somebody really takes that seriously?!? :lmao:

The smartest woman got beaten by the dumbest man.


So, I guess she _is_ saying they are the lesser gender then. Tisk tisk. We've come sooooooo far but even the smartest woman isn't as smart as the dumbest man.

“It was painful, actually. And I wasn’t the only one who felt it – women in the room were openly shedding tears as she spoke”

I’m sure. I’d cry to if I found myself there.

Well, I'm very good with whizzing and zipping, so to speak. Everyone is hereby absolved, no need for confession or communion, but tithing is always welcome.
