Representative Ron Kind (WI-3) discusses the New Democrat Coalition's American Prosperity Agenda, a collection of 200 bills and initiatives to grow the U.S. economy. The Agenda includes strategies to fix the tax code, make it easier to raise capital, invest in infrastructure, and increase exports, among other ideas and solutions. Founded in 1997, the New Democrat Coalition is a key group of Democratic legislators dedicated to maintaining America's status as the world's strongest, most successful nation. Over the eighteen-year history of the Coalition, the group has grown in influence and size, currently covering roughly one-fourth of the House Democratic Caucus. In March 2015, the New Democrat Coalition released the American Prosperity Agenda, which outlines how we can grow our economy, preserve the American Dream, and make government work better for the people. These principles represent ideas anyone – Democrat, Republican, or Independent – can support. The Agenda is a list of policies to keep America the most competitive, creative, and innovative country in the world.
