Echoing Lincoln's core argument about the role of government:
"I believe the government should do for the people what they cannot do better for themselves."
"I believe in a country that rewards hard work and responsibility, a country where we look after one other, a country that says I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper, I'm going to give a hand up, join hands with folks and try to lift all of us up so we all have a better future, not just some - but all of us. That's what I believe."
