The Plan: Big Ideas for America (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


Two renowned young Democrats make a powerful case for their party, and announce a specific, aggressive agenda for America At the beginning of the 21st Century, the United States is the richest and most formidable country in history. And yet, about one in five Americans are still poor and outside the reach of quality schools and health care. Almost 50 years after John F Kennedy declared a New Frontier, it is time to do so again. The purpose of this project is to put forward ideas that can, at long last, fulfil America's potential and enable all Americans to benefit from the nation's wealth and security. These will cover education, health, defence, homeland security, social security and immigration. Both Rahm Emanuel and Bruce Reed have over two decades of experience at the higher levels of American politics and policymaking. Both men served as top aides in Bill Clinton's 1992 and 1996 campaigns and held top policy jobs in the White House. Emanuel served as Senior Advisor for Policy and Strategy. Reed was Clinton's Domestic Policy Advisor.

In this book, they will move beyond the ideological and political arguments that have dominated the nation's issues, focusing instead on practical plans that make the most of existing laws and programs, reinvigorating their party with a programme that political candidates can literally "sign onto", and showing the way forward for the nation as a whole.

In the White House, Emanuel and Reed oversaw the development and enactment of the Clinton administration's major domestic triumphs, including a successful economic plan to create jobs, expand trade and eliminate the budget deficit. In his memoir, My Life, Bill Clinton wrote about Emanuel's "great gift (for) putting ideas into action... (and seeing) the potential in issues everyone else missed. He also called Reed "the intellectual core of the vital center." Both men have been published in dozens of newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.
