We need to foster a new principle that governs not only our politics but our business: The notion of “good corporate citizenship” – wherein corporations and our government share in the belief that, since all Americans are in this together, there is no long-term benefit in exploiting one sector of our people to enrich another. I believe we can create a regulatory framework that encourages this attitude, and I believe it begins with a political tradition of engaging and respecting the voices of everyone we represent.
