No Ideas

Five Democratic Ideas (for those who have only listened to the Republican mantra that the democrats have no ideas)

1) make college education as universal for the 21st century as a high school education was in the 20th.

2) a summit on the budget to deal with the $3 trillion of debt that's been added up in five years and structural deficits of $400 billion a year.

3) an energy policy that says in 10 years, we cut our dependence on foreign oil in half and make this a hybrid economy.

4) create an institute on science and technology that builds for America like the National Institutes has done for health care; we maintain our edge.

5) have a universal health-care system over the next 10 years where if you work, you have health care.

- Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, 2-Oct-05

[Frankly I would go further on point 5 and have universal health-care regardless of employment status].
