I have a set of plans to reclaim our future for our children; restore our standing in the world; and rebuild the middle class. One of my first official actions will be to draw up a clear, viable plan to bring our troops home starting with the first 60 days of my Administration. My top domestic priority will be to provide quality, affordable health care for every American. I will end discrimination against the sick and ensure that people can keep their health care if they change jobs. To fire up the engines of American innovation and transform our economy from carbonbased to clean and energy efficient, I will redirect billions of dollars of big oil tax subsidies into investments in clean, renewable energy alternatives - wind, solar, hydrogen, ethanol, and other bio-fuels - and create five million "green jobs" in the process. I also have a concrete plan to address the mortgage crisis that's sweeping our communities: I will enact a moratorium on foreclosures and put into place a freeze on interest rates so that every family has the opportunity to work out a payment schedule that is affordable and allows them to keep their homes. And I'll take immediate steps to get our economy back on track and prevent us from sliding into a recession. I've been a doer and a fighter my whole life, and that's what I'll be as president.
