Economic Freedom and Opportunity

Patriot Voices believes:

Restore America's Fiscal Sanity

  • We must stop the explosion of debt by cutting spending and shrinking the federal government, and submitting to Congress a budget that will balance within 5 years.   
  • Congress must pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution which limits federal spending to 18 percent of GDP
  • We work to reform and modernize entitlements so that they are on a sustainable path for seniors and young people.  We can do that by capping and block granting social service programs to the states like what was done in Welfare Reform. 
  • We should freeze pay for non-defense related federal employees for four years, cut the workforce by 10% with no compensatory increase in the contract workforce, and phase out defined benefit plans for newer federal workers. 

Repeal and Replace Obamacare 

  • Congress should replace ObamaCare with a plan that block-grants money and control to the states that would innovate and come up with new ways to meet the needs of their citizens at the lowest cost. 

Unleash America's Domestic Energy

  • We support the Keystone Pipeline for jobs and energy security and and support President Trump in his desire to unleash America’s domestic energy production without picking winners and losers.
  • Congress should phase out all energy subsidies. 
  • Market conditions and states should determine whether they want to explore for oil and natural gas. Commonsense regulations reflecting commonsense conservation providing for clean air and water should protect Americans and American jobs instead of promoting the agenda of environmental extremists.

Promote Pro-Growth Tax Policies 

  • We support the creation of pro-family and pro-growth tax policies to strengthen opportunity and free enterprise. We helped build support for President Trump's Tax Reform plan that simplified the tax code and lowered taxes on working families.
  • We also supported the cutting of corporate tax rates included in the Tax Reform Plan. This will unleash the manufacturing sector of our economy by eliminating taxes on US based manufacturing activity and repatriation of income parked overseas for investment in the US.

Reform Job-Killing Regulations & Agencies 

  • We must support reforming the Federal Reserve, phasing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and repealing Dodd-Frank which is making it harder for businesses to get access to credit and for Americans to buy houses and refinance.  
  • We support President Trump in ending all Obama-era regulations. We also support cutting EPA resources for job killing regulations and return the government’s focus to commonsense conservation and safe and clean air and water.
