Education: Along with investing more in K-12 education (basic math, science and technology skills), the administration needs to double NSF and DOE research budgets and enact a multi-year extension of the R&D tax credit.
Environment: There is a need to establish a national policy around green technology and renewable energy and continue passing laws and policies designed to drive energy-efficiency.
Broadband: We think government regulations and policies ought to enable, not impede, the broadband revolution. Incentives to make fast, affordable and high-quality broadband deployment needs to become a reality for all Americans.
Healthcare: We need to implement a new national health care network system by connecting doctors, hospitals, labs and patients by 2012. We believe funding to training 10,000 health IT specialists in the next few years and deploying new health IT equipment will help reduce costly medical errors and drive down health costs.
