    schema:description "Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz challenges the nation to resolve tough issues for future generations. America has witnessed the dangers that come with shortsightedness, she writes. If we want to ensure prosperity for ourselves and an improved way of life for young Americans, we have to change, starting now. We need to create jobs, turn around our economy, formulate a long-term energy solution, reform immigration policies, and enhance and expand health-care coverage. Yet these important issues have been sidelined by gridlock in a Congress that is too concerned about the next election to worry about the future. The group of Americans who have the most to lose from this dysfunction are the ones least represented in government: America's children. This book is one mother's challenge to her congressional colleagues and to the rest of the nation, to adopt a parent's perspective for doing right by our kids.--From publisher description."@en ;
