Description : Abstract
Meg Vaillancourt reports that Jesse Jackson (Democratic candidate for US President) has released position papers, detailing his stance on domestic issues. Vaillancourt reviews Jackson's positions on the economy, trade, employment, social programs, defense spending, and taxes. She interviews Domenic Bozzotto (President, Hotel Workers Union) and Roger Porter (Harvard University) about Jackson's positions on the issues. Bozzotto defends Jackson's platform while Porter criticizes it. Vaillancourt notes that Jackson would support his social programs through cuts in defense spending and increased taxes on wealthy Americans. Vaillancourt reports that Jackson's position as the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination challenges other candidates to defend their positions on the issues. Vaillancourt's report is accompanied by footage of Jackson.
