1) Let us start with a look at some things that President Clinton has fought for to help restore faith in our government. On May 20, 1993, President
Clinton signed the National Voter Registration Act (the motor-voter bill) which would make it easier for people to register to vote. In 1995, he
signed the Lobbying Disclosure Act, which was the first major overhaul of lobbying regulations in half a century.
2)President Clinton has a fairly decent record on the domestic front as well. During the first thirty-four months of his administration, over 7.5
million new jobs were created. Since he took office, the unemployment rate has fallen from 7 percent to less than 6 percent. Also, during Clinton's
administration, our country has experienced the lowest combined rate of unemployment and inflation since 1968. For the first time since Harry
Truman's presidency, our country is on track for three straight years of deficit reduction. And in 1994 the country experienced the highest rate of
real gross domestic product growth in a decade.
Our government has also become much more efficient since President Clinton took office. Clinton has reduced the federal work force by over 200,000
workers. This puts the country on its way to having the smallest federal work force in over a quarter century. President Clinton has also had over
16,000 pages of obsolete government regulations abolished and is in the process of having over 31,000 pages revised and rewritten; and he has proposed
cutting federal spending by over $250 billion over five years.
