House Republicans want you to know there is a better way and we've got an alternative plan that is almost complete. Here is House Leader John Boehner discussing an alternative with core priniciples for longterm success:
We've boiled it down for you. A Republican alternative that works:
-- Help create and protect jobs by letting families and small businesses keep more of what they earn.
-- Ensure the federal budget doesn’t grow faster than family budgets.
-- Aim to expand access to affordable health care for every American, while preserving Social Security and Medicare for future generations.
-- End the bailouts to protect taxpayers and reform the financial system so this crisis never repeats itself.
-- Encourage an “all of the above” energy strategy that harnesses new technologies, encourages greater conservation and efficiency, and increases American energy production in an environmentally-safe manner – without imposing a national energy tax.
-- Fight inflation so the prices of goods and services Americans depend on every day remain stable during and after this economic crisis.
