The first Kennedy-Nixon Presidential Debate in Chicago, Illinois. Sander Vanocur from NBC News asks Republican candidate U.S. Vice President Richard M. Nixon whether the financing of the schools and hospitals was provided by the Eisenhower Administration or by the local school districts. Nixon answers and states that they only think about the work of the federal government. Instead they should consider the joint effort by the federal, state, local government and individual enterprise. The reason the Eisenhower Administration has supported the funds to build schools, hospitals and highways is because this administration has encouraged individual enterprise. Another reason is the greatest expansion of the private sector of the economy and the overall growth of our country. Democratic candidate Senator John F Kennedy presents his views and states that the reason for the construction of schools is because of the willingness of the local school districts to increase property taxes. And also because the United States is a powerful country. He compares the country's progress with that of their adversaries and hopes an overall progress in the field of education, in health, in buildings, in homes and in economic strength.
