Saving the American Dream

Heritage Foundation vice president David Addington has identified six conservative policies that can save the American Dream. He urges Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to include them in his forthcoming 2013 budget proposal.
1.    Tighten the Budget. Congress should make thoughtful spending cuts, reducing the amount spent each year.
2.    Balance the Budget. The budget should balance in the next 10 years, ensuring our government is not spending beyond its means.
3.    Reform Entitlements. Congress should repeal Obamacare, reform spending on programs like Medicare and Medicaid, and impose caps on welfare spending.
4.    Don’t Tax Hikes. Avoiding tax hikes is critical to allowing economic growth and stemming the tide of big government.
5.    Enact Job-Creating, Pro-Growth Tax Reform. “Congress should revise the tax code to establish strong economic incentives for job-creating saving and investment by abolishing a wide range of taxes and reducing the income tax structure to a single rate, or at most two.”
6.    Protect a Strong National Defense. Weakening national defense in order to balance the budget is unacceptable. Our government must be poised to defend its citizens, and irresponsible government spending should not cause Americans’ lives to be put at risk.
