WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton says the dream of upward mobility feels further and further out of reach for many Americans struggling in the economy.
The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate offered her most extensive remarks on promoting economic growth since leaving the State Department's top job. She pointed to the need to promote policies to help struggling workers and young Americans find jobs and get training.
Clinton tells the New America Foundation that instead of getting ahead, many Americans are finding it "harder than ever to get their footing."
She says the economy is growing under President Barack Obama but the nation needs "big ideas" and to work together to find ways "to make pragmatic decisions."
