Wes Clark’s Vision For America

• A plan to create jobs through a Homeland and Economic Security Fund, returning money to state and local governments, and incentives for businesses to create jobs here at home—paid for by rolling back the Bush tax breaks for those at the top.
• A common-sense plan to expand health coverage to all children and make affordable health insurance available to those who do not have it.
• A fiscal program to reduce the exploding federal budget deficit, so we do not pass on an ever-increasing burden of debt to the next generation.
