End Corporate Handouts
No special favors for special interests. Treat all citizens alike. Period. In its limited capacity, our government was conceived to serve the many, not a favored few. These days, too many politicians create too many earmarks, grants, tax favors, and loan guarantees for political allies and privileged industries.
Corporate welfare-meaning policies that risk taxpayer money to pick winners and losers in the marketplace-is not only unfair, it's inefficient. It slants the playing field in favor of crooked monopolies and drives up prices for consumers. It plants the seeds of costly taxpayer bailouts. Let's end it.
No more pitting us against each other. Today's hopelessly complicated tax structure unfairly pits one American against another. Marriage penalties, arbitrary annual extenders, and special-interest tax breaks typify a massively complex and inefficient tax code-and needlessly divide us.
Why not sweep all that away and replace it with a system that's simple and fair to all? Under the New Fair Deal, distorting "credits" and deductions will be eliminated, today's seven brackets will be reduced to just two, and taxation will be much more simple and efficient for everyone.
Our government should live within its means. It's time to diminish the massive burden of debt that's strangling our economy and threatening our future. The New Fair Deal will put an end to automatic spending increases.
Instead, it will lower total federal spending by one percent each year to produce a balanced budget within a decade. And NFD keeps the budget balanced through other process reforms and program reforms and eliminations. Just don't expect us to spare any sacred cows.
People should have the freedom to pursue their dreams. Government health care, welfare, and retirement programs were established as safety nets. They are that-but they also ensnare people in a web of dependency, coercion, and ever-rising taxes. What's more, they drive up the national debt and raise every family's health care costs.
Some of these programs offer a young people a bad deal: taxes always go up, but "guaranteed" benefits may not be there when needed. The "social charter" is showing its age, and needs to be renewed on a more solid footing. The New Fair Deal says: "Let's ensure security to the poor and elderly. But let's also convert hammocks into springboards. Let's make entitlement programs financially sustainable-and less coercive. Let's deprive no one of what is properly his-but let's respect every individual's dignity through greater ownership and freedom of choice."
