The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut.
Rep. Himes: “It’s time to give America the tools to unlock a new wave of innovation, opportunity & good-paying jobs.”
Change happens today faster than ever before. New technology and global competition open new markets and offer life-changing advances.
But without planning and support, too many people get left behind.
When factories close, good people lose more than their paychecks. Dignity, worth and a sense of belonging also seep away. Pride and community turn to fear and division.
President Trump trades in that decline: He nurtures fear, paints a dark picture of the future, blames immigrants, Muslims, Democrats and the media. He promises walls and he promotes division.
And he delivers nothing. Not jobs. Not opportunity. Not unity.[…]
We must invest in lifelong learning, training and education, so that every worker, young or old, can be vital and relevant to the industries of tomorrow.
That’s why Democrats are offering the American people A Better Deal: better jobs, better wages and a better future. A Better Deal recognizes that the core of our economic success has always been hard-working Americans, growing businesses, and the sturdy playing field on which they compete: the highways, airports and railways that undergird American prosperity. […]
Our country needs and deserves leaders who will encourage us to be our better selves and who will champion the ideas that we know are good for our nation. These are the ideas that animate A Better Deal for families across America.
Democrats are all about opportunity, growth, innovation and the good jobs that follow. We will not be distracted. We will not be deterred.
