The Plan

I keep reading how the Democrats say that Mitt Romney doesn’t have a plan except to give tax cuts to the rich and destroy the middle class. I have to admit that really torques my jaws. Mitt Romney does have a plan and lets take a look at some of it now.

1. Spending: First – repeal Obamacare immediate savings 95 Billion dollars a year.
Second – Privatize Amtrak — Savings: $1.6 Billion. Despite requirement that Amtrak operate on a for-profit basis, it continues to receive about $1.6 billion in taxpayer funds each year. Forty-one of Amtrak’s 44 routes lost money in 2008 with losses ranging from $5 to $462 per passenger. This is a complete political boondoggle and needs to be privatized. Third – Reduce Foreign Aid. Why do we give money to countries that want to destroy us? Fourth – Eliminate Title X Family Planning Funding — Savings: $300 Million. Title X subsidizes family planning programs that benefit abortion groups like Planned Parenthood. I keep hearing that Government should get out of our bedrooms, this will help make it happen.
Fifth – Align Federal Employee Compensation With The Private Sector — Savings: $47 Billion. Federal compensation exceeds private sector levels by as much as 30 to 40 percent when benefits are taken into account. This must be corrected.
This is only a partial list of the changes Mitt would make to spending. Click on the Spending title and you will be able to read the whole platform on spending.

2. Energy:
Establish fixed timetables for all resource development approvals
Create one-stop shop to streamline permitting process for approval of common activities
Implement fast-track procedures for companies with established safety records to conduct pre-approved activities in pre-approved areas
Ensure that environmental laws properly account for cost in regulatory process
Amend Clean Air Act to exclude carbon dioxide from its purview
Expand NRC capabilities for approval of additional nuclear reactor designs
Streamline NRC processes to ensure that licensing decisions for reactors on or adjacent to approved sites, using approved designs, are complete within two years

Conduct comprehensive survey of America’s energy reserves
Open America’s energy reserves for development
Expand opportunities for U.S. resource developers to forge partnerships with neighboring countries
Support construction of pipelines to bring Canadian oil to the United States
Prevent overregulation of shale gas development and extraction

This is just a small part of the overall plan of Mitt Romney as our President. I hope you will read the rest of his plan and share it with others as well. It is a good and sensible plan which will help to get us back on the right track to fiscal and energy independence. Let me know what you think about all this, because this is an election that will have a huge impact on the direction of our nation for years to come, from monetary policy, to supreme court justices. Thanks for reading and joining the discussion.
