Offers a critical view of the 1994 Republican victory, arguing that only a practical assessment of government's strengths will solve such problems as the deficit and welfare dependency
As an alternative to the Republican agenda, Cuomo presents a mandate for fulfilling America's potential to be the greatest and most compassionate nation on earth. If we are to overcome our cynicism, reinvent government, and find a new language for discussing our future, we must look to each other. We must "reconcile our profound instinct for individualism with our inescapable need for a sense of community."For those who long for a voice that rises above the petty political squabbles over gasoline taxes, the minimum wage, and same-sex marriages, Cuomo's Reason to Believe revives our faith, restores our vision, and inspires our hope for America's future.
