Economic Growth and Job Creation
Americans deserve a growing economy that offers the opportunity to work, succeed, and achieve their dreams. But Washington liberals are offering little more than stagnation, welfare and dependence. That’s why we need to focus on creating jobs and growing our economy through commonsense reforms like reducing the tax burden, lowering healthcare costs, reducing energy prices and helping make higher education more affordable for middle-class families who work hard and play by the rules.
Reduced Energy Prices
Americans deserve conservative solutions that create long-term, sustainable energy security combined with environmental stewardship.
Welfare-to-Work Reforms to Help the Neediest
Trapping people in a state of long-term government dependency runs counter to our American ideals—it’s both uncompassionate to the poor and unfair to middle-class taxpayers who are footing the bill for government welfare programs. That’s why we need a well-designed, sustainable safety net to provide a temporary hand up to Americans who have fallen on hard times and are striving to achieve self-sufficiency.
Low-Cost, Patient-Centered Healthcare
Every American should have access to affordable health insurance, and the ability to acquire preventive health care and treatment. Yet few will be able to afford health care or insurance if rising costs continue to spiral out of control.
Affordable Higher Education
When it comes to higher education, reducing costs and increasing accessibility need to be our top goals. While families continue to struggle with rising tuition and fees, it’s unfair that few Americans are armed with the information they need to understand why these costs keep going up, or the flexibility to make higher education choices that meet their goals and their budgets. By increasing transparency and accountability for institutions of higher education, we can give middle-class families the information they need to make the right choice of school. And by using cutting-edge technology like online courses and other learning tools, we can reduce the costs of providing a world-class education to Americans seeking to better themselves.
