Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered a speech at the New America Foundation Conference in Washington, DC. Her speech was on the topic of the economy, and more specifically, income inequality. Clinton urged businesses and community groups to come together to help the struggling middle class. She argued that upward mobility does exist within the United States, but the government may not be solution. She said, “We can’t wait for government, which seems so paralyzed and unfortunately at a time when we could be racing ahead.”
