Economy


The world today looks ominously like it did before World War I

My Plan?  Investigate how to reinvigorate our manufacturing

industries.  Remember those? Steel. Automobiles. Textiles.

Electronics.  Jobs being done in other areas of the globe today.

No, I am not talking tariffs.  I am talking competition. Investment.  

If a corporation wants to sell items in the US made abroad, that

is fine.  But that corporation is taking advantage of our nation's

infrastructure to make those sales, and needs to pay their fair

share in taxes to cover that infrastructure. Perhaps a different

corporate tax rate for goods made outside the US and another

one for goods created inside the US, based on the percentage

of the item in question is manufactured in our country.  Just

spit-balling here.  It is a plan after all.  A plan requires planning,

not implementation. That comes later after a plan is ironed out,

working with folks well-versed in economics. 


I keep hearing about other candidates' economic plans but never

actually get to see their plans. Parts of my plan is covered in my

budget page. Spend less on defense in the area of new

acquisitions. Eliminate the Federal Department of Education.

Use those savings to cut some of our debt, spend more on

veterans' care and improve our failing infrastructure - creating

jobs in the construction and engineering sectors.  


Our future economy may be different for a lot of us:












One thing business owners may become concerned with is...  

if no one has a job, how do they purchase what businesses are

wanting to sell?   Years ago someone running for President made

a prediction about manufacturing jobs in America:












Jobs are changing!

We are in a truly global economy.   I can make one promise.  I will do everything in my power to make sure what happened a few years ago does not happen again. I will have an administration that WILL HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE for their actions.
