The right answer : how we can unify our divided nation

Image of item
Book

First edition.

"The first declared candidate for president in 2020 delivers a passionate call for bipartisan action, entrepreneurial innovation, and a renewed commitment to the American idea. The son of an electrician and grandson of an immigrant, John Delaney grew up believing that anything was possible in America. Before he was fifty, he founded, built and then sold two companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But he never lost his hunger to serve, and in 2012 he ran for Congress and won. Now he has a new mission: unifying our terribly divided nation and guiding it to a brighter future. As a boy, Delaney learned the importance of telling the truth and embracing compromise. As an entrepreneur, he became successful because he understood the need to ensure opportunity, harness the power of incentives, and think creatively about problem-solving. In these pages, he illustrates the potency of these principles with vivid stories from his childhood, his career in business, and his new life as a politician. He also writes candidly about the often frustrating experience of working on Capitol Hill, where too many of his colleagues care much more about scoring political points than improving the lives of their fellow Americans. With a clear eye and an open heart, he explains that only by seeing both sides of an argument and releasing our inner entrepreneur can Washington get back to constructive, enlightened governing. Seventy years ago, John F. Kennedy appealed to our best instincts when he said, "Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but the right answer." In this inspiring book, John Delaney asks all of us to cast aside narrow, partisan thinking and join him in an urgent endeavor: forging a new era of American greatness"--
