Principles for

AMERICAN RENEWAL

from www.gop.com

Constitution

Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored.

Economy

We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that hard-working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.

Budget

We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt.

Healthcare

We need to start over with real healthcare reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.

Veterans

Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.

Security

Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders.

Education

Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.

Poverty

The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work.

Values

Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty, and hard work.

Energy

We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.

Immigration

We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.
