Let me begin by saying that I'm a Teenager who's going to be participating in an upcoming debate at my high school between the Teenage Republicans and Young Democrats. I was assigned the topic: The US Budget. I am apart of the Teenage Republicans, and am seeking some help or opinions. Here is what I believe. US Budget: 1. Taxes -Generate more revenue by cutting taxes at each level (Corp. Tax, Cap. Gains, Income Tax, etc) 2. Foreign Affairs: -Reform our foreign aid so we are actually holding countries accountable. (Giving billions to Pakistan, yet "They didn't know" Osama was there) -Stop funding the UN (G-77 System, wasteful spending) 3. Entitlements: -Reform SS!! Very simply put, raise the retirement age so SS becomes sustainable -Why are we cutting the payroll tax? It created a deficit in SS last year, and will continue to do so -Start IRA's, let people pay what they want! But, they must contribute 3%, they can't not put into it -Medicare/Medicaid (This is where I'm weakest) -Obamacare needs to be repealed, cost too much 4. Illegal's -Stop the incentives for them to come here. Start with repealing '82 Supreme Court decision that everyone is entitled to K-12 education -Troops on the border 5. Drill! -NO social services to them 5.
