Nearly three years into President Obama’s tenure, the shuttered factories and foreclosure signs that continue to litter our nation’s landscape represent the final verdict on his administration’s failed economic policies.
Our national debt has escalated from $10 trillion to $15 trillion, with little to show for it. 14 million Americans remain out of work, denied the dignity of a job. Millions more are so dispirited they’ve simply given up looking.
The seriousness of today’s broken economy demands a serious, principled leader; a leader with conviction who will restore trust in Washington, and in government’s ability to help solve problems, not create them.
I’m not running for president to offer slick sound bites crafted to appease focus groups, nor to shrink from the big issues when it’s politically convenient.
I am running to offer the tough but necessary solutions that will transform America’s economic foundation, and give the American people the tools to compete in the 21st Century. In short, we have an opportunity to rebuild our nation’s manufacturing muscle.
My economic and jobs plan is endorsed by the Wall Street Journal, and described as “the most pro-growth proposal ever offered by a U.S. presidential candidate.”
The centerpiece is an overhaul of our convoluted and complicated tax code, which has devolved into a maze of special interest carve-outs and loopholes that cost taxpayers more than $400 billion a year just to comply with.
Rather than tinker with a broken system, my plan cleans house.
