9780143109037: American Dreams: Restoring Economic Opportunity for Everyone

Dear Friends, My parents came to the United States in 1956. The country they found was truly a land of opportunity, where hardworking people with grade school educations could afford a home, a car, and college for their kids. A country where maids and bartenders could raise doctors, lawyers, small-business owners, and maybe even a U.S. senator. That was the American Dream our country s central promise to its people: If you work hard and play by the rules, you ll find tremendous opportunities and an even better life for your children. Yet today, I look around and see the American Dream on life support. Seven years of government-centered, tax-and-spend liberalism have failed to lift the poor or sustain the middle class. Fewer Americans are working than at any time since Jimmy Carter was president. New business creation is 30 percent lower than it was in the 1980s. The stock market may be surging by the time you read this, but millions of everyday Americans will still be left behind by an economy that doesn t value their skills and a government that would rather give a handout than a hand up. I wrote this book because we stand at a critical juncture. What kind of country are we going to be? Will we surrender to Obamacare and other laws that crush innovation and entrepreneurship? Will we accept a powerful nanny state and the erosion of family values? Will we allow politics to kill the American Dream? Or will we rise to the challenge and take back our legacy as the only nation on earth that offers unrestricted opportunity to all? I believe we can restore the American Dream and expand it to reach more people than ever before. But to do so we must restrain our power-hungry, debt-ridden federal government. We must help businesses create more stable middle-class jobs. And we must help our families stay healthy and secure. In this book you ll meet an over-regulated small-businessman, a struggling single mother, an out-of-work and in-debt college graduate, and others who want

Product Description:

In 1956, Marco Rubio s parents came to America as poor immigrants with grade school educations. They found a land of opportunity where anyone could work hard, play by the rules and build a better future for themselves and their children. His family proved the reality of the American Dream, where the children of maids and bartenders could become doctors, lawyers, small business owners and maybe even a US Senator.

But now the American Dream is on life support. Years of government- centred, tax-and-spend liberalism have failed to lift the poor or sustain the middle class. Millions of everyday Americans have been left behind by an economy that doesn t value their skills and a government that would rather give them a handout than a hand up.

Now Senator Rubio offers a roadmap for restoring the land of opportunity. He explains why America now stand at a critical junction, and why the next few years will determine the future for US citizen s children and grandchildren. He shares his plan for scaling back the nanny state, helping families save for college and retirement and making it easier for small businesses to create millions of good jobs. Above all, he urges Americans to return to the values and can-do spirit that made America exceptional in the first place.

Review:

"Just downloaded [Marco Rubio]'s new book. I know it will be a great, substantive read. I hope you all check it out as well. #AmericanDreams."
Jeb Bush via Twitter"

"Readers of "American Dreams" will quickly observe a bold conservative plan with a realistic trajectory. Other presidential candidates would do well to note his refreshing plan over political naysaying."
- Eric Bledsoe, Conservative Book Club
"["American Dreams"] is well worth reading, if for no other reason than that it gives precise illustrations on how the present system is ruining lives and needs to be fixed, or eliminated so that people can become successful again."
