Description

Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz challenges the nation to resolve tough issues for future generations.

America has witnessed the dangers that come with shortsightedness, writes Debbie Wasserman Schultz in For the Next Generation. If we want to ensure prosperity for ourselves and an improved way of life for young Americans, we have to change, starting now. We must:

· Create jobs

· Turned around our economy

· Formulate a long-term energy solution

· Reform immigration policies

· Enhance and expand health-care coverage

Yet these important issues have been sidelined by gridlock in a Congress that is too concerned about the next election to worry about the future. The group of Americans who have the most to lose from this dysfunction are the ones least represented in government: America's children. For the Next Generation is a call to action, one mother's challenge to her congressional colleagues and to the rest of the nation, to adopt a parent's perspective for doing right by kids.

Marked by clarity and by Debbie's characteristic poise, this polemic is informed by the congresswoman's own personal and professional experiences. It digs deep, exposing very real threats that America faces as a result of its failure to confront tough decisions. Debbie conveys a vision of an America that has learned hard lessons from its recent past, an America galvanized by a renewed sense of purpose for applying that wisdom through forward-thinking policies on education, civil rights, and foreign policy. She describes how she will fight to overcome the legislative obstacles that inhibit progress, and she calls upon fair-minded Americans to lend their own strengths to securing a better tomorrow for the next generation.

Publishers Weekly Review

Aug 12, 2013 – In this rote, camera-ready recitation of the party platform, Democratic National Committee Chair Wasserman Schultz hews close to official talking points. The youngest woman ever elected to the Florida State Legislature, only the third woman to head up the DNC, and a cancer survivor, Wasserman Schultz’s personal story is an impressive one, but little of the will and power of the person appears on these pages. Instead, she and co-writer Fenster provide a run-down of last year’s popular campaign issues, including immigration, women’s rights, health-care, and, of course the economy, outlining the official Democratic position on each, while explaining how and why the Republican party is the wrong choice for America. The chapter on foreign policy neglects to mention the hugely unpopular drone program, and no reference to the Keystone XL pipeline sullies Wasserman Schultz’s pristine take on the Democratic environmental platform. Anyone longing for a retread of last year’s campaign will enjoy this defense of the winning position; however, political junkies and non-partisan observers will find nothing more than the status quo.
