Creating a "Opportunity Society"

Evan Bayh, more than any other '08 contender, understands the importance of the middle class when looking to advance our country into the new millenium. To show how committed he is to the issues the middle class is facing in America, Evan Bayh delivered a major policy speech on the strengthening the middle class last week at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Within the speech, he laid out the framework for creating an "opportunity society" for American workers. After the D.C. address, he flew out to Iowa to deliver an encore presentation of the speech to the Hawkeye public.
