Still, we know that people are working harder and longer just to keep their heads above water. And to deal with the costs, the everyday costs, the costs of basics like childcare and prescription drugs that are too high. College is getting more expensive every day. And wages are still too low and inequality is too great. Good jobs in this country are still too hard to come by.
Now these problems are serious — but I know we can overcome them together. I really believe in this country because I believe in the American people. America’s economy isn’t yet where we want it to be — but we are stronger and better positioned than anyone in the world to build the future you and your children deserve.
