President Clinton talked about the idea of teamwork and partnership in America and his proposed New Covenant, designed to offer citizens and communities more opportunities in return for more responsibility. The president cited several ways to improve the lives of Americans including: reducing the size of the federal government; reducing the burden of unfunded requirements on state and local governments; requiring Congress to live under the same laws it imposes on people in the private sector; approving the line-item veto to control unnecessary spending; and giving more flexibility to states to reform their welfare and health care systems. The president warned against the Republican effort to replace his guarantee of 100,000 additional police officers on the streets, referring to their attempt as “a blank check that has no guarantees at all, with money that can be used for all kinds of things other than police.” He also cautioned against Republican attempts to slow down, stop, and/or reverse many of the educational gains. He maintained that education and training are the keys to opportunity in the 21st century. close
