QUESTION: Why should we trust you?
PRESIDENT CLINTON: Four years ago, I asked you to take me on faith. Now you can look at the record. It demonstrates my commitment to protect our values, meet our challenges, and build Americaís bridge to the 21st century.
Here it is: The lowest unemployment in 7 1/2 years. Over ten and a half million new jobs. A steady decline in crime. 1.8 million people off welfare. A cleaner environment. A 60% cut in the deficit.
Our opponents passed deep cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, education, and the environment. They even shut the government down to force the cuts. But I stopped them with the veto.
We fought against them to pass Family Leave, which my opponent still opposes. We fought for the Brady Bill that has stopped 60,000 felons, fugitives, and stalkers from buying guns. We fought to raise the minimum wage. We said no to tobacco ads aimed at our children.
Iíve kept faith with Americaís families by fighting for them every day. And thatís what you can count on for the future.
