- You cannot be pro-jobs and anti-business at the same time. You cannot love employment and hate employers.
- 1992 Democratic National Convention. 
- Everything we hope to do, depends on an expanding economic pie. And only a vibrant, competitive, thriving private sector can create that. Government is a necessary partner, but it is the junior partner. Only the private sector can produce the revenues for the social programs that we Democrats care so much about. The financing of those programs through ever more public debt violates our generation responsibility.
