In this portion of that keynote address, Cuomo contrasts then- President Ronald Reagan's image of the United States as a "shining city on a hill" with another America experienced by many of her citizens. He suggests that the real story was "a tale of two cities," and stressed the gap between the haves and have-nots in 1980s America.</p>
