A Blueprint for Prosperity: Market-based Alternatives to the Obama Blueprint for Change
The U.S. Budget Deficit and national debt are skyrocketing. The U.S. income tax system is incomprehensible, tends to concentrate wealth in the hands of the rich in spite of heavily progressive marginal tax rates, and is broken beyond all repair. Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare and Welfare entitlement costs are out of control and threatening bankruptcy. The U.S has problems, but none of them are insoluble. This book is a set of inexpensive, free-market action plans to do the following:
Get the federal budget into surplus and keep it there.
Abolish the U.S. income tax system, without replacing it with any other new taxes.
Avoid the coming meltdown in Social Security, provide workers and seniors with a stable safety net, lower payroll taxes, and provide ongoing, debt-free stimulus to the economy.
Put capital into the hands of workers and allow them to amass their own personal, income-producing nest egg.
Put the consumer back in charge of the cost of healthcare, and make health insurance more affordable, portable, without the need of socializing huge swaths of the economy.
Create a performance-based welfare system that doesn't depend on means testing for continued receipt of benefits.
