Rep. Foley, speaker of the House of Representatives, spoke during the 75th anniversary conference of the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank on public policy, on the 102nd Congress' domestic agenda. After briefly discussing the position of the Democratic party concerning the Persian Gulf war, which he said was strongly supportive of the president’s position, Rep. Foley described the Democratic position on education, the infrastructure of the U.S., and health care. He said the American public desired a system of health care which simply cannot be provided under the current system of government and taxes. He also discussed crime in the U.S. and appealed to the Congress to make the U.S. the leading country in the world by improving its way of life at home. close
