For more than a year, Hillary Clinton has laid out an ambitious agenda to improve the lives of the American people and make our country stronger and safer. Stronger Together presents that agenda in full, relating stories from the American people and outlining the Clinton/Kaine campaign’s plans on everything from apprenticeships to the Zika virus, including:
-Building an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.
-Making the biggest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II, including infrastructure, manufacturing, clean energy, and small business.
-Making debt-free college a reality and tackling the student debt crisis.
-Defeating ISIS, strengthening our alliances, and keeping our military strong.
-Breaking down the barriers that hold Americans back by reforming our broken immigration system, ending mass incarceration, protecting voting rights, and fixing our campaign finance system.
-Putting families first through universal, affordable health care; paid family and medical leave, and affordable child care.
Stronger Together offers specific solutions and a bold vision for building a more perfect union.

Typical policy book. Outlines the usual. You know the drill by now.
Not a good read
A must read! loved it, makes a great gift to someone you love.
Don't waste your time reading this narcissistic piece of drivel. It's a tedious read.
Good plans. It's nice to see them all in one place. I tried to print them out on the website but was rather difficult
The election was stolen . Wouldnt surprise Donnald bought it.. He has enough money. How much did mr.FBI rake in for his hatchet job 11 days before election. MONEY TALKS Don has money.
Easy to read. Good plan. Plenty of sources.
I got one person telling me not to read it but i got the other person telling me to read it i mean what the f**k
