"It's going to take time to rebuild an America where hard work is valued, where responsibility is rewarded, where people don't feel like the decks are stacked against them. Where everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is contributing their fair share. It is going to take time to rebuild an America where we restore security for the middle class and opportunity for folks trying to get in the middle class. An economy that works for everybody and not just for folks at the top.That's our goal."
