Here is my simple 14 point plan to get the economy rocking. Contrary to my history of a long, verbose OP with detailed explanations for each point (which I wrote) I will just post the headlines for now (which to me seems very ambiguous). 1) Repeal Obamacare 2) Reform (not completely eliminate) government regulations on business 3) Reduce the corporate tax to a competitive rate and overhaul the personal tax code. 4) Suspend the collective bargaining rights for public sector unions. 5) Allow the repatriation of foreign funds on the condition that a significant portion of it is invested in American business. 6) Impose penalties on the imports of foreign nations that refuse to honor our free trade agreements. 7) Offer tax breaks for small businesses that hire and for major companies that build new manufacturing plants in the United States. 8) Allow home and student loan refinancing for those who actually need it combined with banking regulations that prohibit bundling and generally playing roulette with money the banks don't have. 9) Pull the business licenses of companies who hire illegal immigrants. 10) Secure the damn border and deport illegal immigrants. 11) Embark on aggressive drilling and conservation. 12) Invest in supplemental sources of alternate energy (wind, geothermal, tidal, etc), nuclear energy (especially), and ease restrictions on the production of primary and alternate sources of fossil fuels including shale oil. 13) Make members of Congress subject to insider trading laws and strengthen laws against government corruption that include real jail time instead of censures. 14) Make all of the above permanent for a minimum of 7-10 years. Through these steps we create a friendly business environment that makes it in a company’s best interests to remain in the United States, hire, and expand their operations. It also protects American business from foreign nations who refuse to provide an even playing field and gives incentive for American consumers to buy American goods. It protects the American worker and provides some opportunities for immediate financial relief. It moves towards energy independence by taking steps to have greater control over both supply and demand and opens the door for greater competition between different forms of energy. It addresses questionable banking practices as well as government cronyism and corruption. Lastly it provides certainty for both industry and consumers. Do all this and the economy will take off like a rocket.
