Senator Jack Kennedy offering a real liberal democratic agenda and vision for the country. Designed to move the country forward and expand economic opportunity for more Americans. Because of the civil rights legislation of the mid-1960s, as well as more education funding and grants so more Americans could go to college. A lot of that economic opportunity was expanded in the 1960s. And not just to Caucasian-Americans but African-Americans and other Americans as well. Jack Kennedy ran for president in 1960 to get America moving again. Real economic and job growth that reached all Americans and not just the wealthy and Caucasian-Americans. But for the entire country and thought America was in decline in the 1950s under the Eisenhower Administration.
