Repeal the Bush tax cuts and bring the troops home from everywhere. Spend the money in the U.S. that we're currently spending everywhere else. That will stimulate our economy instead of everyone elses economy and get things done in the U.S. that need to be done. Turn health care into a free market instead of the medieval guild it is now.
What's your idea? Gutting SSI and turning Medicare into an HMO? Never happen. Wrong answer.
