Stop the erosion of middle class American families by providing low-cost, university-level, job-training educational opportunities, create balanced taxing policies where the wealthy pay their fair share, and bring back manufacturing jobs to the United States of America.

Petition Background

The economic storms of recent years have raised concerns about growing inequality and questions about a core national faith, that even Americans of humble backgrounds have a good chance of getting ahead. Most of the discussion has focused on labor market forces like falling blue-collar wages and lavish Wall Street pay.

But striking changes in family structure have also broadened income gaps and posed new barriers to upward mobility.

If you or your children have been adversely affected in pursuing the American Dream, let your voice be heard in the election box and through this petition.
