III. Detailed Summary
The New Fair Deal, or NFD, is the beginning of what we hope will be a legislative revolution. It's a
bold, forward-looking reform agenda, built around four pillars, rooted in American principles. A
package of about a dozen bills promoting the four pillars will soon be introduced in Congress. The
four pillars are:
1. End Corporate Handouts
2. Tax Fairly
3. Stop Overspending
4. Empower Individuals
1. End Corporate Handouts.
Pillar One demands an end to corporate welfare: No special favors for
special interests. Treat all citizens alike. Period. In its limited capacity, our government was
conceived to serve the many, not a favored few. These days, too many politicians create too many
earmarks, grants, tax favors, and loan guarantees for political allies and privileged industries.
Corporate welfare—meaning policies that risk taxpayer money to pick winners and losers in the
marketplace—is not only unfair, it’s inefficient. It slants the playing field in favor of crooked
monopolies and drives up prices for consumers. It plants the seeds of costly taxpayer bailouts. Let’s
1. Seeks to level playing fields and prevent costly future bailouts.
2. Eliminates the special subsidies to the sugar industry--subsidies that that benefit a tiny
handful of rich “sugar moguls” while needlessly driving up food costs for families and
3. Eliminates special tax breaks for energy producers, including wind farms and plug-in vehicles.
4. Repeals loan and grant programs for “advanced technology vehicles” and “broadband
technology.” Such programs risk taxpayer money to pay businesses to do what they would do
anyway with their own money.
5. Ends taxpayer subsidies for high-speed rail and railroad track maintenance. Profitable
railroad companies can easily fund themselves; why should taxpayers subsidize unprofitable ones?
6. Terminates agencies whose mission is to subsidize industry, such as the Economic
Development Administration and the Appalachian Regional Commission.
2. Tax Fairly.
Pillar Two calls for a fair and equal tax system. No more pitting us against each other.
Today’s hopelessly complicated tax structure unfairly pits one American against another. Marriage
penalties, arbitrary annual extenders, and special-interest tax breaks typify a massively complex and
inefficient tax code—and needlessly divide us. Why not sweep all that away and replace it with a
system that’s simple and fair to all? Under the New Fair Deal, distorting “credits” and deductions will
be eliminated, today’s seven brackets will be reduced to just two, and taxation will be much more
simple and efficient for everyone.
1. Replaces today’s hopelessly complicated income tax code with a simple, two-rate flat tax
2. Establishes a new universal, 1% “skin-in-the-game” tax, so everyone pays something.
3. Eliminates most credits, deductions, and exemptions, but retain a generous standard
deduction and deductions for charitable donations and mortgage interest.
4. Eliminates the marriage penalty through doubling.
5. Repeals the Death Tax and the Alternative Minimum Tax.
6. Members have also discussed eliminating the corporate income tax.
3. Stop Overspending.
Pillar Three suggests the unthinkable—our government should live within its
means. It’s time to diminish the massive burden of debt that’s strangling our economy and
threatening our future. The New Fair Deal will put an end to automatic spending increases. Instead, it
will lower total federal spending by one percent each year to produce a balanced budget within a
decade. And NFD keeps the budget balanced through other process reforms and program reforms
and eliminations. Just don’t expect us to spare any sacred cows.
1. Ends baseline budgeting. No more automatic spending increases.
2. Reduces federal spending by at least 1 percent a year, until the budget is balanced, and keeps
it balanced by ending baseline budgeting and eliminating numerous specific programs and
agencies, especially those that primarily benefit special interests.
4. Empower Individuals.
Pillar Four promotes individual empowerment through ownership and
choice. People should have the freedom to pursue their dreams. Government health care, welfare,
and retirement programs were established as safety nets. They are that--but they also ensnare
people in a web of dependency, coercion, and ever-rising taxes. What’s more, they drive up the
national debt and raise every family’s health care costs. Some of these programs offer a young
people a bad deal: taxes always go up, but “guaranteed” benefits may not be there when needed.
The “social charter” is showing its age, and needs to be renewed on a more solid footing. The New
Fair Deal says: “Let’s ensure security to the poor and elderly. But let’s also convert hammocks into
springboards. Let’s make entitlement programs financially sustainable—and less coercive. Let’s
deprive no one of what is properly his—but let’s respect every individual’s dignity through greater
ownership and freedom of choice.”
1. Makes social-welfare entitlements secure for the poor and elderly, sustainable for taxpayers,
and more voluntary for everyone.
2. In place of burdensome mandates and costly bureaucracy, NFD includes robust reforms to
reduce the cost of health care for everyone.
3. Makes health care costs 100 percent deductible for all patients.
4. Lets everyone have access to a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account.
5. Provides generous targeted help to the one percent of Americans who can’t afford health
insurance due to a pre-existing medical condition.
6. Greatly expands Medicare seniors’ choices. Let them choose between original Medicare and a
private Medicare Advantage plan, or even enroll in the Congressional Health Care plan.
7. Reestablishes the original policy of allowing seniors to disenroll from Medicare without
8. Permits seniors to pay their doctors directly to obtain the health care services they need,
without losing their Medicare.
9. Returns means-tested welfare, including Medicaid and food stamps, to the states, who can
better manage these programs.
10. Members are discussing ways to make Social Security more voluntary and a better deal for
younger workers, while protecting it for future generations.
