President Clinton's State Of The Union Address January 27, 2000

The State Of The Union Is Strong.
In his State of the Union Address tonight, President Clinton will note that our nation is strong and that we have an historic chance to build a new American revolution of opportunity, responsibility and community.

A Bold, New Vision Eight Years Ago.
Eight years ago, America was suffering from rising crime, growing deficits and a weak economy. For the past eight years, we have been determined to change these trends with a bold, new vision based on enduring values: opportunity for all, responsibility from all, and a community of all Americans.

Today We See The Results Of That Vision.
We enjoy the strongest economy in a generation. Record deficits are now record surpluses. Overall crime rates are down 25 percent. Welfare rolls have been cut in half.

A New Revolution.
Today we have a profound opportunity and obligation to build on those results, to take the long look ahead and set new goals to move our nation closer to the more perfect union our founders' envisioned.

Building On Our Progress, Step-By-Step.
Tonight, the President will outline new goals based on the same enduring values: opportunity, responsibility and community. The President will address:

Opportunity and Responsibility in Education
Rewarding Work and Strengthening Families
Responsibility and Crime
Expanding Economic Opportunity to Every Corner of America
Expanding Economic Opportunity and Protecting American Interests
Around the World
Responsibility, Opportunity and the Environment
Opportunity and Responsibility of Science and Technology
Building One American Community
