Mccain Economics

  1. 2. <ul><li>Today’s economy makes it hard for people to balance home life and work. </li></ul><ul><li>Fixing labor laws to allow parents to work easier from home and promote telework. </li></ul><ul><li>Allowing portable healthcare so struggling workers don’t remain in a dead-end job solely for the fear that they will lose healthcare for themselves and the ones they love. </li></ul><ul><li>Ronald Reagan said nobody ever washed a rental car. And that's true in health insurance. If they're responsible for it, then they will take more care of it. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>Shift the emphasis from employer insurance to that bought by individuals. </li></ul><ul><li>-Give $5000 to families, $2500 to individuals. </li></ul><ul><li>-Dedicate more federal research to curing chronic diseases </li></ul><ul><li>-Zero tolerance policy towards Medicare and Medicaid fraud </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Policies will increase value of the dollar </li></ul><ul><li>His cap-and-trade system is gradual, unlike Obama’s which is too drastic. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides monetary incentives for corporations to lower emissions. </li></ul><ul><li>Believes in an even- handed system of tax credits that will remain in place until renewable energy has reached the point where it is competitive with conventional energy sources. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>-According to the Department of Energy, wind could provide as much as one-fifth of electricity by 2030. The U.S. solar energy industry continues its double-digit annual growth rate in 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Create thousands of jobs in construction and maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Better strategy than Obama’s windfall tax. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>By giving tax breaks heavily to middle class, Obama would actually hurt economy. </li></ul><ul><li>While this is a generalization, most people will simply spend the tax breaks that Obama hands out, wasting what they should be saving. </li></ul><ul><li>On the surface, tax breaks for corporations seem like a bad idea </li></ul><ul><li>In actuality: they increase competitiveness, lowering prices for everybody, and saving Americans money in the long term rather than short term </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>Low individual tax rates - sole-proprietorships, partnerships, landlords and others are taxed under the individual income tax. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhancing international competitiveness to keep jobs here; not abroad. </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, Obama isn’t the only one planning to reduce offshoring. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>-Eliminate broken government programs. The federal government itself admits that one in five programs do not perform. </li></ul><ul><li>-Reform our civil service system to promote accountability and good performance in our federal workforce. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Comprehensive spending controls. </li></ul><ul><li>Bi-partisan efforts will be the key to undoing the recent spending binge, as was successful in the late 90s. </li></ul><ul><li>In the long-term, the only way to keep the budget balanced is successful reform of the large spending pressures in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>&quot;On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.“ </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Why can't I just eat my waffle?&quot; --after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
