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 must submit legislation to repeal ObamaCare and issue an executive order ending related regulatory obligations on the states.
- Congress should replace ObamaCare with competitive market based choices of healthcare plans to improve the quality and limit the cost of healthcare, while protecting those with uninsurable health conditions.
Unleash America's Domestic Energy
- We must approve the Keystone Pipeline for jobs and energy security and sign an order unleashing America’s domestic energy production without picking winners and losers on day one.
- 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 must support the creation of pro-family and pro-growth tax policies to strengthen opportunity and free enterprise in our country through tax simplification, lower rates, and no more than two tax brackets.
- We must support promoting job creation through cutting the corporate tax rate in half and unleashing 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 should eliminate all Obama-era regulations with an economic impact over $100 million. Also, cut EPA resources for job killing regulations and return the government’s focus to commonsense conservation and safe and clean air and water.
