We always hear Dems say the other side has no Ideas, they just say no. So at risk of being attacked from Both sides I am going to lay out what I would do. What I would do about the Economy and Debt. First off, I would keep Individual Tax rates progressive like they are. With the highest Earners paying a higher %. I would Reform the Tax code to eliminate ALL loop wholes for Individuals so they are Actually paying the % we set. I might even be open to raising taxes on the richest amongst us. As for Cooperate Taxes. I would slash them. Going on the theory that Cooperation's simply collect taxes we are paying by raising Prices and fees to offset any tax you put on them. Possibly to 0 for a short time to attract business back to the US. We have High wages but if we can be a very friendly tax environment it could help to offset that. So we could keep having high wages and not watch Businesses flee. I would cut Capital Gains taxes to 0 for a short time, then cap them at 4% after that time. I would start a National Sales tax of 2%. This tax would not apply to food, and basic necessities, nor would it apply to services. I would push to Legalize Industrial Hemp, and Marijuana possession for those over 21, and Tax it heavily. I would Invest in every type of Alternative fuel. From Nuclear plants, to Solar, wind, Hydrogen, Hemp and other bio fuels. As well as allow responsible Exploration and Drilling to continue. With strict over site from the Fed. I would Repeal the current health care bill. I am not going to get into all the detail off my Health plan but here is a summary. I would remove restrictions on who you can buy insurance from, and make it so you do not have to worry about losing your carrier if you lose or change your job, or move. I would do TORT reform, and cap what attorneys can make in cases, as well as put a cap on some aspects of what you can get paid for when you sue. I would set up a government health insurance company for those who can not afford to pay any or all of their insurance cost. People would pay based on what their income level. The poorest amongst us paying nothing. Those who can afford their own insurance would not have to use the Government Company, and could if they chose but would pay full price. The idea would be that this government company would be run as an equal competitor to the 1500 Other companies. The same laws that stop Cooperation's from Under cutting their competitors to much or shamelessly taking a loss because they can to put their competitors out of business would apply to this government co. The aim being to keep the Government from using this company to drive Prices down unrealistically and kill Private insurance. That is by far not all we could do about health care but is a start. I would go through every part of the budget. Including Defense, and make common sense cuts on wasteful spending. Focusing on Streamlining Bureaucracy, where a lot of waste goes. I would allow younger people to start opting out of SS in favor of Privatized plans with Over site. While allowing those who have been paying in for a long time to collect SS. I would continue to go after terrorist around the world with a combination of Special forces, Intel Assets, Law enforcement, and targeted air power. but I would Bring the troops home from Iraq, and Afghanistan and fully secure our borders. As an immediate way to combat unemployment I would build an extensive Double Fence system along the southern border hiring the Unemployed to build it. I would heavily patrol the border with manpower and Unmanned vehicles, and Intercept and immediately expel all people caught attempting to cross or enter the USA from anywhere illegally. Any Drug, Gun, or Human Smugglers Caught would be tried and sent to Gitmo for the duration of their sentence, and then Expelled. I would pass Immigration reform, But it would not include any immediate Amnesty or Immediately citizenship for those here illegally. Undocumented people here now, Would be required to come in. Become documented, and begin the process of becoming Citizens. Only those with Felony Criminal Records would be Deported.(yes I know those with Criminal Records would not willingly come in) The rest would become legal Citizens after waiting the same amount of time as someone applying to come legally. They would have a deadline to come in, after which time they would be charged with a felony for not complying and be deported when and if they are picked up. During the wait those who chose to come in would pay taxes, and be treated as a citizen in every respect other than they could not vote until they become legal Citizens. As far as Guest worker programs and Quotas I would take a common sense look at the numbers and adjust them as needed. Just some Ideas of one little guy who is labeled on the right anyways lol.
