Six Goals to Create Jobs and Opportunity

 
‎Wednesday, ‎September ‎28, ‎2011, ‏‎2:20:24 PMGo to full article
The six critical goals towards creating jobs and opportunity are:

1. Create a Fiscally Responsible Government

  • Keep tax rates low on income and consumption
  • Implement a sensible, broad-based tax system
  • Balance the budget
  • Eliminate “corporate welfare” that props up failing private companies/industries

2. Focus on the Proper Role of Government in the 21st Century

  • Determine the proper role of government and eliminate programs which don’t meet that role or achieve needed results
  • Deliver more efficiently core state services such as education and healthcare
  • Make certain that benefits for state workers are reasonable and sustainable
  • Reward state employees for savings generated by their innovation and efficiency
  • Expand privatization and competitive contracting to build infrastructure
  • Ensure that the benefits of proposed regulations exceed costs

3. Look to Energy to Power Job Creation

  • Simplify permitting processes to bring clean coal and nuclear plants to market
  • Refrain from imposing excessive, punitive taxes and regulations on natural gas and oil extraction
  • Repeal unreasonable mandates and regulations that drive up electricity costs
  • Review all energy efficiency state standards that exceed federal standards

4. Embrace Free-Markets Reforms in the Era of Obamacare

  • Make health insurance personal, portable and renewable
  • Give individuals the same tax benefits for purchasing insurance as businesses
  • Allow Medicaid enrollees to control some of their own healthcare dollars
  • Repeal state laws which drive up the cost of prescription drugs

5. Improve Education with Student-Centered Results

  • Mobilize parents to hold elected leaders, principals and educators accountable
  • Empower parents and students to select the schools best suited for them
  • Simplify school funding and ensure that more dollars go directly into classrooms
  • Reward effective teaching that results in improved student performance

6. Establish a Justice System Free of Lawsuit Abuse

  • Place caps on non-economic and punitive damages awards
  • Reform class action lawsuits
  • Require a loser pay system
  • Replace the rule of joint and several liability with the rule of proportionate liability
