    In contrast, in postwar Germany they're not only the richest country in the European Union, they have a strong social safety net for working families from which we could learn a lot because we in America have 59 million who don't have health insurance; 132 million who don't have dental insurance; 60 million who don't have any paid sick leave; 40 million who are on food stamps.

    By contrast everyone in Germany has complete medical and dental from cradle to grave, everyone by law is required to have paid sick leave, paid maternity leave and paid annual leave. University tuition here is so low it’s almost free. To clear we can all be proud Americans, should we ask the question, do we all need to be proud of everything America does or can we do better for working class American families?
