I first tried to put this into words in 2011 when I was thinking about running for the Senate: “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own—nobody.” My point was that everyone who succeeds gets some help from the investments we’ve all made. And we keep on making those investments so the next kid will get a chance, too. Education, infrastructure, research—investing in all three during the twentieth century built a bright future for our country. And we forged that future together.
