A Welcome Message from John Kerry
Welcome to JohnKerry.com! I'd say welcome to my website, but this isn't my
website alone - it's your website - and your chance to change America. I’m
running for President because George Bush has taken America in a radically
wrong direction with a Presidency that serves powerful special interests
instead of everyday Americans. From the moment I take office, I will stand
up to those special interests and stand with hardworking families so that
we can give America back its future and its ideals.
In my first 100 days as President, I will revoke every Bush executive
order that favors polluters and the special interests. My first major bill
to Congress will be national health care reform, taking on the insurance
industry to hold down costs and cover all Americans. I will repeal Bush’s
tax cuts for the wealthy so we can invest in education and health care. I
will take on the oil industry and make energy independence a national
priority while creating 500,000 new jobs. I will attack corporate
corruption and end the special interest feeding frenzy in Washington. And
in my first 100 days, I will declare an end to the Bush policy of
unilateralism and pre-emptive war.
I have spent my entire career standing up to special interests and
fighting for the American people. I am running for president because we
need a President who is ready and willing on day one to make tough stands
and fight the hard battles. I am prepared to fight with all my energy in
these next months and provide solutions – not just slogans – to get
America back on track. Please read more here about the specific steps I
will take in the first 100 days of my Presidency.
Starting in January 2005, I will put my plan to action and help make our
ideals a reality. But I can’t do it without all of you. Together, we will
win. And together, we will change America! Join us now.
