Education - "The federal government has to fund the No Child Left Behind legislation. I’m not talking about throwing money away because the accountability has to be there with it."

Medicare and Medicade - "We ought to cover every American. Every U.S. citizen ought to have access to coverage, like our neighbor to the north," he said, citing the 44 million Americans who lack health insurance in a free-wheeling, medical marketing business that contrasts with Canada's national health care program.

O'Hare Expansion - “The large and small business people around O’Hare need that airport and we’re taking it for granted. We need to push vigorously to get that expansion approved.”

Taxes - He dismisses the Bush administration's proposed tax cut as a means of stimulating the economy, favoring instead a traditional liberal Democratic Party approach to creating economic growth. "I would build things, for a more provable stimulus to the economy."
