Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Darren Soto joins Democratic colleagues in launching an ambitious new economic agenda –A Better Deal –promising better jobs, better wages, and a better future to all Americans. Rep. Soto penned an opinion piece for The Hill shedding light on how the new democratic economic agenda empowers America’s working families and presents solutions to meet the greatest challenges of our times.

“With Hurricane Trump wreaking havoc on our nation, this jobs agenda comes not a moment too soon. But as we expand upon our message, the time has come for us to be bold,” writes Rep. Soto. “We must think beyond the present, conventional debate, beyond the next election cycle, and set our sights upon the future… America is at its greatest when we challenge ourselves, boldly charge into the unknown, and dare to do the impossible.”

A Better Deal focuses on creating millions of good-paying jobs, lowering the costs of living for families, and building an economy with tools to succeed in the 21st century. In his Op-ed, Rep. Soto details five bold goals democrats are striving to achieve within this agenda over the next decade: energy revolution, transportation evolution, technological advances, education revolution, and space exploration renaissance.

“These goals are audacious, will require a huge concerted effort and resources of epic proportions. They will also create millions of better jobs with better wages along with new innovative technologies. And I believe that Americans are ready to be inspired. We must only have the courage and vision to show the way,” Rep. Soto concluded.
