Position Papers
Most of the technologies we need to reshape our energy future are at hand. What's lacking is the political will to use them. We can't drill our way out of oil dependency; we have to innovate our way out of it. American ingenuity can drive the process, and new American jobs will be the dividend.
We need a government that can look to the future and help our economy adjust to a rapidly changing world. We must develop an industrial strategy that includes ending our dependence on imported oil, creating good jobs here at home, and producing goods to sell abroad.
Health Care
The number of people in this country who go without adequate healthcare is a national shame and a moral outrage. It is time that we end partisan bickering and work together to develop a system that provides affordable health care for every family in this country.
