Now that the Budget Balance Act of 2011 is behind us it is time to think ahead to the future. We have all read the recent polls showing that if the election were held today President Obama would lose to a Generic Republican Candidate. If this were to happen, are we prepared for the next four years? Do the republicans in Congress have a secret plan locked away in a file cabinet ready to undue all the harm that has been done in the past few years? If the answer is no, it’s time to start planning now for the next four years.
We have our work cut out for us. Why wait until the last minute. We all know what needs to be done and fast. First and foremost the new president must rescind every executive order that President Obama signed during his term. Congress must immediately start dismantling the Department of Energy, Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If we are going to get this country back on the right track, there are painful decisions that need to be made now.
The next step that we should take is to gather together the best minds in business that this country has to offer. We gather them all together for a summit, with the understanding that they leave politics and ego at the door. Nothing will be left off the table including the immediate lowering of personal and corporate taxes. Spending has to be cut to levels that have not been seen since the 80’s. There are sacrifices that must be made. It may be a hardship to some but it will be worth the effort.
Last and probably the most important actions that Congress must take is to repeal ObamaCare and the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. In place of these two laws we pass legislation that will help consumers and give them what “THEY” want and not what was forced upon them.
We do not have time to waste. The sooner we get this country back on track in the right direction, the sooner we get people back to work and the economy humming on eight cylinders. Lets us not forget what Ronald Reagan said, "I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts”
