THE HOUSE REPUBLICAN PLAN FOR A BETTER AMERICAN FUTURE

Where We Go From Here:

FATHERS' MANIFESTO Home Page

April/May 1995

THE AMERICAN OPPORTUNITY:


   
Creating a Safe and Prosperous Future for Our Generation and Our
   Children
   
   We are proposing the most significant change in American government
   since 1933. This change involves $11.7 trillion in federal spending,
   the fundamental direction of American Society, and the lives of 260
   million Americans. The significance of this opportunity requires an
   investment of time in order to understand what we're trying to do.
     _________________________________________________________________
   
   
   
   The Coming Debate is not about just the budget:
   
       
     * It is about America's Future
       
       
     * It is about the Doing the Right Thing
       
       
     * It is about an opportunity to create the potential for prosperity,
       safety and a better life for virtually every American
       
   
   
   It will take hard systematic work and real change, but it can be done
   and it will improve our lives and our children's lives.
   
   Doing the Right Thing Means:
     * Being truly compassionate by replacing the Welfare State with an
       Opportunity Society
     * Restoring freedom by ending centralized bureaucratic
       micromanagement
     * Promoting prosperity, economic growth, and take-home pay by
       reducing taxes, litigation and regulation
     * Creating opportunity for every American by leading the
       transformation to a Third Wave, Information Age society
     * Creating a safe future for our children and our retirement years
       by balancing the budget and solving the financial crises in
       funding Medicare and Society Security
       
   
   
   The Majority Party in American politics is responsible for leading the
   civic discussion about the American Idea. It is our moral
   responsibility.
   
   As the majority party, we must lead a new dialogue to achieve the
   needed changes. That new dialogue must lead to a new partnership with
   the American people.
   
   Through our new dialogue we can change today's public opinion into
   tomorrow's public judgment.
   
   Given enough facts people will decide we must create new opportunities
   by reshaping American Government and balancing the budget. The
   American people will join a partnership to create a safe retirement
   for the Baby-Boomers and a safe future for their children.
   
   In 1995 we are at a crossroads. American has been in similar
   situations and always risen to the challenge.

     We have every right to dream heroic dreams ... the crisis we are
     facing today ... requires our best effort and our willingness to
     believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great
     deeds, to believe that together with God's help we can and will
     resolve the problems which now confront us. After all, why shouldn't
     we believe that? We are Americans.

                                OUR OPPORTUNITY
                                       
   
   
   We have the potential to improve every American's life through 5
   strategic improvements.
    1. Being truly compassionate by replacing the Welfare State with an
       Opportunity Society
       Restoring freedom by ending centralized bureaucratic
       micromanagement
    2. Promoting prosperity, economic growth, and take home pay by
       reducing taxes, litigation and regulation
    3. Creating opportunity for every American by leading the
       transformation to a Third Wave, Information Age Society
    4. Creating a safe future for our children and our retirement years
       by balancing the budget and solving the financial crises in
       funding Medicare and Social Security
       
   To embrace change on this historic scale, we must use an appropriate
   planning model:
     * Vision
     * Strategies
     * Projects (definable, delegatable achievements)
     * Tactics
       
   We must ask ourselves:
     * What is our vision of America's future?
     * What are our strategies to achieve that vision?
     * What projects are the building blocks to implement our strategies?
     * What tactically do we need to do today to model and fulfill our
       vision?
       
   If we fulfill our destiny, we'll achieve:
   
   
     * Our vision of a successful 21st-century America - 1
        
          + Every American safe from violence and drugs
          + Every willing person will be integrated into the world of
            work, property, and achievement
          + A health environment will be managed through sound science
            and a commonsense, effective and economical approach
          + New technologies and new approaches will extend
            opportunities in learning, health and jobs to the poorest
            rural and inner-city neighborhoods
          + Government will be lean, customer-responsive and effective
   
       
       
     * Our vision of a successful 21st-century America - 2
        
          + A renewed American civilization, with a renewed
            understanding of "Our Creator," our traditions and our
            institutions, will have created a renaissance in civic
            responsibility and in voluntary and non-profit charities and
            activities
          + The best system of health in the world
          + Effective lifetime learning
          + New technologies and approaches to create the fullest
            possible participation of every American with disabilities
   
       
       
     * Our vision of a successful 21st-century America - 3
        
          + A pro-entrepreneur, pro-science, and technology, pro-savings
            and investment America that is inventing the best products
            with the highest values in the world
          + Job opportunities for every American with the greatest value
            added, highest productivity, largest incomes, and best job
            security in the world as the best exporting country that
            creates American jobs through world sales.
          + Low taxes so incomes translate into take-home pay and the
            family budget has precedence over the government budget
          + A regularly balanced budget with declining national debt so
            money will maintain honest value without inflation, taxes to
            pay interest will be declining and interest rates will be
            low.
            
   
   
   We have living proof America can succeed in the 21st Century. All
   around us scientists and entrepreneurs are inventing a better future.
   All around us corporations are re-thinking and re-engineering to
   produce more, better and faster, with fewer resources. All around us
   the private sector and private citizens are changing, adapting and
   improving.
   
   The Federal government is the least changed major institution in
   America. We know we can have a leaner, better, more effective
   government that does more and serves people better with fewer
   resources.
   
   When we have our plan thought out, we must lead by listening to
   others about their plans, their hopes and their fears.
   
   Listen, Learn, Help, Lead
   
   These are the four key steps to getting people to implement
   large-scale change.
   
   FIVE STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENTS WILL HELP US CREATE A BETTER GOVERNMENT AND A
                                BETTER AMERICA:
                                       
    1. Replacing the welfare state with an opportunity society
    2. Decentralizing and privatizing American government
    3. Creating economic growth and re-establishing America's
       competitiveness in the world market by reducing taxes, litigation,
       and regulation
    4. Leading the transformation to a Third Wave, Information-Age
       society
    5. Balancing the budget and solving financial crises in Medicare and
       Social Security
       
   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
                        THE FIRST STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT
                                       
   
   
   Being Truly Compassionate requires replacing the Welfare State with an
   Opportunity Society
   
   The Welfare State has failed:
     * It is a failed model of delivering goods and services to help
       people. It actually hurts the poor.
     * Its failure is reflected by the violence, brutality, child abuse
       and drug addiction in every local TV news broadcast.
     * The culture of violence increasingly permeates our entertainment
       and denigrates our civilization.
     * The non-working, non-productive part of our society is a factor in
       the deficit and declining American competitiveness in the world
       market.
       
The Human Cost of the Welfare State

   
   
   Poor Americans are:
     * Trapped in unsafe housing
     * Maintained in unsafe neighborhoods
     * Saddled with rules that are anti-work, anti-family, and
       anti-property
     * Forced to have their children attend public monopolies that cost a
       lot but accomplish little
       
   In the name of compassion we have funded a system that is cruel and
   destroys families
   
A Failed Welfare State

     * Welfare spending now exceeds $ 305 billion per year, for a total
       of $5 trillion since 1965 - more than the cost of winning WWII.
     * This $305 billion is roughly 3 times the amount needed to raise
       all poor Americans above the poverty line.
     * Since 1970, the number of children in poverty has increased 40%.
     * Since 1965, the juvenile arrest rate for violent crimes has
       tripled.
     * Since 1960, the number of unmarried pregnant teens has nearly
       doubled and teen suicide has more than tripled.
       
  AS WELFARE SPENDING HAS GROWN, SO HAS ILLEGITIMACY:
  
   [Chart Illustrating Welfare Spending and Illegitimacy]
   
  AS EDUCATION SPENDING HAS RISEN, SAT SCORES HAVE FALLEN
  
   [Chart Illustrating Education Spending and SAT Scores]
   
   The failure of the welfare state strikes at the heart of the American
   belief that every citizen is endowed by our Creator with certain
   inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of
   happiness.
   
   No civilization can survive with:
     * 12-year-olds having babies, 15-year-olds killing each other,
       17-year-olds dying of AIDS, and 18-year-olds receiving diplomas
       they can't read
     * Furthermore, no civilization can survive with parents and
       grandparents cheating their children by refusing to balance the
       budget and live within their means
       
   The Welfare State cheats the poor; the unbalanced budget cheats every
   child.
   
  THE LEGACY WE'RE LEAVING TO OUR CHILDREN: MORAL AND FISCAL BANKRUPTCY
  
   
   
   Our program for a better American future begins with replacing the
   welfare state with an opportunity society. A cheaper welfare state is
   an inadequate response.
   
  TRANSFORMING THE WELFARE STATE INTO AN OPPORTUNITY SOCIETY FOR THE POOR
  REQUIRES:
     * Shift from caretaking to caring - Morris Shechtman, Working
       Without a Net
     * Welfare Reform that emphasizes work, family and opportunity -
       Charles Murray, Rethinking the Social Welfare System, Losing
       Ground
     * Volunteerism and Spiritual Renewal - Marvin Olasky, The Tragedy of
       American Compassion
     * Renewing the Basic Values of American Civilization
     * Tax Incentives for work, investment, and entrepreneurship - Jack
       Kemp, An American Renaissance, Desoto, The Other Path:
       Introduction
     * Re-establishing property ownership and full citizenship for the
       poor - Manhattan Institute, City Journal, Spring 1993
     * Learning as the focus of Education - Polly Williams, Wisconsin
       State Legislature
     * Government protection for the poor against violence and drugs -
       James Q. Wilson, Crime; William Bennett, Heritage Foundation,
       Policy Review
       
   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
                       THE SECOND STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT
                                       
Restoring Freedom by Ending Centralized Bureaucratic Micromanagement by the
Government in Washington

   
   
   The Centralized, Washington-based system of bureaucratic
   micro-management has failed in a diverse, continent-wide country
   
   Reforms should emphasize decentralization from Washington and return
   authority to state and local government.
   
   A general rule for decision-making: For local problems, local
   government is generally better than national government, and the
   private sector is generally better than local government. The private
   sector includes non-profits as well as for-profit activities.
   
The Jeffersonian Model of Limited Government

   
   
   Four zones of a free society:
    1. Culture and society setting the rules we live by
    2. Civic Responsibility; Non-Profit; Private Association;
       Tocqueville's Association
    3. Private Property; Free Markets; Entrepreneurship; Wealth Creation
    4. Limited effective government
       
   
   
   Any effort to increase government comes at the expensive of the other
   3 elements of society
   
Elected Leaders have Four Roles in this New Opportunity Society:

     * Visionary Definer and Value Articulator
     * Symbol of Community Power and Standing
     * Recruiter of Talent and Energy for Private Sector Solutions
     * Administrator and Manager of the Government
       
When Re-thinking the Federal Government, we must ask:

    1. Does the community leadership have an interest in making this
       happen even without Federal intervention?
    2. Is it something which is morally and spiritually more appropriate
       in a non-profit, voluntary system?
    3. Does the project symbolize and communicate the values we want the
       society and culture to be reinforcing?
    4. Can a private, for-profit business achieve the same goal as well
       or better than the government?
    5. Is there a Third Wave Information Age technology that improves
       service or lowers cost or does both?
    6. If government is the best place to do it, can it be done at the
       state or local level?
    7. If the Federal government is the best place to do it, where is it
       on the priority list? Can we afford to do it?
    8. Have we thought through the least expensive, most citizen
       oriented, most entrepreneurial way to do it with maximum
       satisfaction and minimum resources?
       
   
   
   THE REAL ISSUE: WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'T?
     _________________________________________________________________
   
                        THE THIRD STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT
                                       
Promoting Economic Growth, Jobs and Prosperity by Reducing Taxes, Litigation
and Regulation

   
   
   The American Economy needs to grow within an increasingly competitive
   world market
     * To provide more jobs and increased take-home pay
     * To provide resources for charities, local and state governments
     * To increase revenues so the Federal Government budget can be
       balanced without raising taxes
     * To pay for Social Security and Medicare in the 21st century
       
As Washington Grows, the Economy Slows

   Middle Class Squeeze:

   ahead.

Middle Class Anxiety is Justified

   [Chart Illustrating Real Median Income vs. Taxes as Share of National
   Income]
   
   Creating more effective government that needs fewer resources will
   allow us to lower taxes and increase take home pay for working middle
   class families.
   
   Re-engineering government to cut out waste, lower costs, increase
   productivity and increase quality will also allow us to lower taxes on
   entrepreneurs and inventors so we can create more economic growth.
   Economic growth: The consistently underestimated contributor to our
   economic well-being.
   
   At 1% LESS GROWTH than the current projection:
     * Social Security goes into deficit 13 years sooner (in 2016)
     * The Federal deficit is $913 billion bigger over the next 7 years
     * Federal tax revenues are $716 billion smaller
     * Individuals will have $9,329 less personal income over 7 years
       
   
   
   At 1% MORE GROWTH than the current projection:
     * Social Security maintains its surplus well into the future
     * The Federal deficit shrinks by $913 billion over the next 7 years
     * Federal tax revenues are $716 billion greater
     * Individuals will have $9,678 more personal income over 7 years
       
   
   
   In 7 years, the difference between the high and low economic growth
   projections means:
     * $1,826 billion swing in the size of the Federal budget deficit
     * $1,432 billion swing in Federal revenues
     * $19,007 swing in what individuals could make over 7 years
       
  HIGH GROWTH RATES CAN BE ACHIEVED AND SUSTAINED AND ARE A RESPONSE TO
  FOLLOWING THE RIGHT POLICIES - JUST AS GOOD HEALTH COMES FROM GOOD NUTRITION
  AND EXERCISE
  
    Example:
    
   
   
   Japan 1975 - 1993
   18 years without a recession
   4.3% annual growth rate
   3.7% annual personal income increase
   
   Compared with America's performance 1975 - 1993
   Three recessions during that period
   2.6 annual growth rate
   1% annual personal income increase
   
   Imagine if America had matched the Japanese in economic growth over a
   similar period:
     * Real GDP would have been $ 1.7 trillion greater
     * Per capita income would have been $ 8,519 greater
     * Federal revenues would have been $ 365 billion greater
     * The Federal budget deficit would have had a $ 179.6 billion
       surplus rather than a $ 185.7 billion deficit in 1984
       
  GREATER AMERICAN COMPETITIVENESS AND INCREASED ECONOMIC GROWTH REQUIRES:
     * A tax code that favors work, savings and investment
     * Less litigation
     * Less regulation and red tape
     * Lean and effective bureaucracies
     * Lifetime learning
     * Entrepreneurial culture
     * Sensible government investments in infrastructure
     * Government research and development leading to corporate product
       development and marketing
     * More aggressive U.S. government support of exports and more
       effective enforcement of trade agreements
       
   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
                       THE FOURTH STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT
                                       
Creating Opportunity by Leading the Transformation to a Third Wave, Information
Age Society

   
   
   America needs to lead the world into the emerging Third Wave
   Information Revolution and its new technologies
   
   The Information Revolution with lead to changes on an historic scale:
   
   The First Wave: Hunting/Gathering to Agriculture
   
   The Second Wave: Agriculture to Industry
   
   The Third Wave: Industry to Information
   
   The Information Age will create opportunities in a wide range of
   areas:
     * Computers
     * Worldwide Electronics
     * Molecular Medicine
     * Breakthroughs in Material Technology
     * Exploring and Manufacturing in Space
     * Microminiaturization
     * Virtual Reality
       
   
   
   In the Third Wave Information Age, we can do far more with less. The
   advance from the vacuum tube to the transistor to the computer chip
   has resulted in a one-million-fold improvement in productivity over 40
   years. The power of computer chips will multiply one-million-fold over
   a ten-year period. This means a one-trillion-fold increase in
   productivity after the year 2000. If the federal government had
   undergone this rate of improvement, today's federal government would
   be providing the same level of service and programs with only four
   federal employees and at a total budget of $100,000.
   
   All over America, companies are finding ways of doing more with less:
     * Over the last 15 years, one of our major automotive companies has
       transformed itself through new technology and a new culture of
       quality and productivity. They produce the same number of cars at
       2 1/2 times the quality, but 1/2 the workforce.
       
     * A major American company that makes generating equipment has found
       a way to save $100 million a year just by re-designing the way its
       people do work.
       
     * By using computers more effectively, an American heavy equipment
       manufacturer can make twice the number of truck engines with the
       same number of people.
       
   
   
   Consider what a government that matched that standard would look like.
   Consider how much we could improve services, reduce spending, reduce
   taxes, and balance the budget with this approach.
   
   Re-inventing the old government isn't good enough. New breakthroughs
   do not fit into the traditional model of government. New breakthroughs
   require bold thinking based on the principles of Peter Drucker, Edward
   Deming, and others. We must apply these new breakthroughs as part of
   replacing the welfare state with an opportunity society.
   
   In a successful 21st century government, we can replace the wasteful
   bureaucracies of today with programs that serve citizens and save tax
   dollars.
   
   Among the proposals some House Republicans have already offered:
     * Merge the Departments of Education and Labor, saving $4 billion
       every year
     * Eliminate HUD, saving up to $15 billion over 5 years
     * Eliminate the Department of Energy, saving up to $20 billion over
       5 years
       
   
     _________________________________________________________________
   
                        THE FIFTH STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT
                                       
Creating a Safe Future for Our Children and Ourselves by Balancing the Budget
and Solving the Financial Crises in Medicare and Social Security

   
   
   The budget deficit combined with the baby-boomers' coming retirements
   will cause a crisis of historic proportions unless the problem is
   honestly faced and managed well in advance.
   
   If we face up to these challenges now, we can establish the
   foundations of a safe financial future for ourselves and our children.
   
The Debt Consumes America

   [Chart Illustrating Growth of National Debt]
   
   The Clinton Administration knows a crisis is coming... Social Security
   will face a cash deficit in 2013 ... the unified deficit will
   increase unless taxes are raised or benefits reduced ... and (it)
   could come even earlier (1999).
               - Clinton OMB Director - Alice Rivlin, 10/94

   
   
   ... but fails to provide a solution.
   
   The Clinton debt numbers actually understate the problem because they
   fail to account for 4 additional powerful factors:
    1. The taxpayers' burden in paying interest on the debt
    2. The cost of higher interest rates caused by federal government's
       borrowing
    3. The imminent financial crisis in Medicare
    4. The soon to be retiring baby-boomers and their effect on the
       Social Security Trust Fund
       
   Fact: Every Citizen will have to pay a lot in taxes for interest on
   the debt
   
   The Current Budget Deficit is Projected by to continue growing into
   the future without solution:

Debt in 1995              $ 4,800,000,000,000

Interest for Debt         $   235,000,000,000

Debt in 2005              $ 7,533,000,000,000

Interest on Debt         $   412,000,000,000
in 2005

Cumulative Interest on    $ 5,212,000,000,000

Debt 1995-2009

   
   
   Over the next 15 years, we'll pay as much in taxes just to pay
   interest on the debt as today's entire debt:

Debt in 1995             - $ 4.8 trillion

Interest on the Debt     - $ 5.2 trillion 1995 - 2009

   
   
   The following Americans will pay a lot just on interest on the debt
   that builds up over their entire lives:


              Year of Birth       Interest payments over
                                  a lifetime of 75 years

Robert          1959                   $ 75,851

Mary            1974                   $115,724

Sally           1995                   $187,150

   
   
   Our spending today saddles our children with debt tomorrow. Sally will
   have to pay $187,150 in taxes for interest on the debt to finance her
   parents' and grandparents' Medicare and Social Security before she
   begins paying taxes for any government services that benefit her.
   
   According to Clinton Administration budget projections: In 1997 we
   will pay more for interest on the debt than we will pay for national
   defense:
   National Defense in 1997: $257 billion
   Interest on Debt in 1997: $270 billion
   
   In just 17 years, spending on entitlements and interest on the debt
   will consume all tax revenues. The only item in the budget that we'll
   be able to afford is interest on the debt and entitlements --
   discretionary spending will be beyond our means. [Chart Illustrating
   Outlays as % of GDP]
   
     A family should know it is over-extended when [the interest on] its
     debts exceed 15% of its take-home pay.
             -- Leonard Sloan, New York Times Personal
Finance Handbook

   
   
   Interest on the Federal debt alone already exceeds 17% of Federal tax
   revenues, and it is going up.

{revenues $1.4 Trillion x 17% = $238 Billion
{$238 Billion / $4.8 Trillion = 5%   hmmmmm


   
   Fact: Budget deficits raise interest rates and cost everyone
   additional money.
   
  WHAT A BALANCED BUDGET WILL MEAN FOR MOST AMERICANS:
  
   I think their real incomes and purchasing power of their real incomes
   would significantly improve ... they would look forward to their
   children doing better than they.
                     -- Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan

   
   
   One recent estimate is that a balanced budget could produce up to a 2%
   lower interest rate for everyone:
     * 2% lower on your car
     * 2% lower on your mortgage
     * 2% lower on your credit card
     * 2% lower on building a new factory
     * 2% lower on keeping a family farm in business
       
   
   
   This is a balanced budget dividend.
   
   While 2% may not seem like much, it adds up to a lot of money over a
   lifetime.
   
  WHAT 2% MEANS FOR A 30 YEAR MORTGAGE:

For a $75,000 home (30-year mortgage) at 8.75% annual interest
rate:

Annual Mortgage + Your National Deficit Tax   =  Amount You Pay
   Payment        (2% added to interest rate)      Every Year

   $5,832                 $1,248                      $7,080


Extra mortgage you pay over 30 years due to national deficit:
                          $37,440

  WHAT 2% MEANS FOR YOUR CAR PAYMENT:

For a $15,000, 4-year auto loan at 9.75% annual interest rate:

Annual Car  + Your National Deficit Tax   =  Amount You Pay
  Payment     (2% added to interest rate)      Every Year

   $3,624               $180                       $3,804


Extra interest you pay over 4 years on your auto loan due to the
national deficit:

                          $720

  WHAT 2% MEANS FOR A FAMILY FARM:

For a 6-month, $350,000 farm operating loan at 10% annual
interest rate:

6-month Interest + Your National Deficit Tax   =  Amount a Family
     Payment       (2% added to interest rate)       Farm Pays

   $13,936                 $3,484                     $17,420

  WHAT 2% MEANS FOR DEVELOPING A NEW DRUG:

Over 7 years, it could save $20 million of the cost of developing
just one new drug.

   
   
   2% lower interest rates will make America a much more competitive
   economy in the world market. With a balanced budget lowering interest
   rates (the Balanced Budget Dividend), experts believe the American
   economy will:
     * Create 4.3 million more jobs in 10 years
     * Increase per capita incomes 16.1%
     * Generate $235 billion more revenue for the Federal government
       without a tax increase
     * Generate $232 billion more revenue for state and local governments
       without a tax increase
       
   
   
   Fact: The imminent crisis in Medicare funding is real and unavoidable.
   It must be corrected within the next few years.
   
  MEDICARE SPENDING WILL SOON OUTRUN REVENUES, AND ITS DEFICIT WILL CLIMB:
  
   [Chart Illustrating Medicare Deficit, 1996-2005]
     _________________________________________________________________
   
  MEDICARE GOES BANKRUPT IN 6 YEARS
  
   [Chart Illustrating Medicare Outlays vs. Medicare Payroll & Benefits
   Tax, 1994-2030]
   
   By 2002, the Medicare Trust Fund runs out of money. If we wait until
   then, everyone will pay for our failure to solve the problem. The
   Medicare portion of FICA taxes for everyone will have to be raised
   125% from their current level AND senior citizens will have to pay
   300% more in yearly premiums. The cost of Medicare to everyone will
   go up again and again until Medicare is transformed.
   
   Because a centralized government monopoly is inherently inefficient,
   wasteful, and too slow to adapt to new ideas and new solutions:
   MEDICARE MUST BE TRANSFORMED into a system in which every senior
   citizen has more choices in health care and more control over their
   own lives. A transformed Medicare system will provide better health at
   lower cost with great choice. Failure to transform Medicare will lead
   to cuts in services and financial crisis.
   
   The immediate Medicare challenge will ultimately be dwarfed by an even
   bigger Social Security challenge.
   
   FACT: When baby-boomers begin to retire, they will put enormous
   pressure on the Federal budget.
     * Baby-boomers begin to retire in 2008.
     * In 2013, Social Security spending will exceed the taxes workers
       are paying into the system.
     * In 2030 the Social Security Trust Fund will be entirely depleted.
       
  THE BABY-BOOMERS' RETIREMENT THREATENS THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND
  
   [Chart Illustrating Income vs. Outlay, Social Security Trust Fund]
   
  THE BABY-BOOMERS' RETIREMENT DRAINS THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND, AND ADDS
  TO THE ALREADY MASSIVE DEFICIT
  
   [Chart Comparing Social Security Trust Fund, Deficit Excluding Social
   Security, Combined Deficit]
   
   Faced with combined deficits on this gigantic scale, the politicians
   of 2013 will only have four choices:
     * Ruthless spending cuts of unprecedented depth - OR
     * Massive tax increases - OR
     * Tremendous cuts in Social Security benefits - OR
     * Fiscal crisis leading to massive inflation
       
   
   
   For the politician who fails to provide leadership, it's better to
   enjoy the present and postpone worries abut the future, no matter what
   the ultimate cost. If you plan to be alive in 2013, NOW is the time to
   ensure that the baby-boomers will be able to retire without: massive
   inflation, massive tax increases, or massive cuts in Social Security.
   NOW is the time to prepare for a safe and prosperous future.
   
   Recap: The four fiscal facts that make change in the Federal
   government unavoidable are:
   
   Rising cost to taxpayers of interest on the debt
   
   Cost to everyone of higher interest rates caused by the deficit
   
   Imminent crisis in Medicare funding
   
   Shift in Social Security from surplus to deficit as the baby-boomers
   start retiring

            5 STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENTS DEFINE "DOING THE RIGHT THING"
                                       
     * Being truly compassionate by replacing the welfare state with an
       Opportunity Society
     * Restoring freedom by ending centralized bureaucratic
       micromanagement
     * Promoting prosperity, economic growth, and take-home pay by
       reducing taxes, litigation and regulation
     * Creating opportunity for every American by leading the
       transformation to a Third Wave, Information Age Society
     * Creating a safe future for our children and our retirement years
       by balancing the budget and solving the financial crises in
       funding Medicare and Social Security
       
   
   
   What will our childrens' lives be like if the leadership for a safe
   and prosperous future prevails? What if the status-quo leadership
   prevails?
   
   Take the story of 2 children: Danny and Theresa.
   
                                     DANNY
                                       
   
   
   Danny is a successful suburban child who's family is well-off and
   who's future is bright.
   
   Theresa is a poor inner-city child who's life is bleak and future is
   uncertain. Danny is a successful suburban 18-year-old whose family is
   well-off and his otherwise bright future is threatened and he doesn't
   even know it. More children Danny's age believe the UFOs might exist
   than believe that Social Security will be there for them when they
   retire.
   
   Danny faces a bill of $125,000 from the Federal government that he
   will have to pay over his lifetime in interest on the Federal debt.
   
   Our current policies offer Danny and his generation an ugly choice: By
   the time he's 43, he could be paying 28% of his income just to fund
   Social Security and Medicare. Or, he could wait until he's 53, do
   nothing, and be faced with a bankrupt Social Security system.
   
   If Danny can't provide for his own future, how can he provide for
   America's? 

   
                                    THERESA
                                       
   
   
   A poor inner-city 15 year-old whose life is bleak and future
   uncertain, Theresa has been raised by her mother alone, as is the case
   with over 1/2 of the children like her in America's inner cities.
   
   She was born when her mother was only a teenager herself. Theresa's
   family is on welfare - which is not unusual. 77% of all unmarried teen
   mothers go on welfare within 5 years of giving birth. More than 40%
   remain on welfare for more than 10 years.
   
   Theresa's 10 year old brother is twice as likely as any of the types
   of boys his age to be the victim of a serious crime, and nearly three
   times as likely to be murdered by the time he reaches 18 years old.
   
   Theresa is at great risk of becoming pregnant, as children of teen
   mothers are 2 1/2 times more likely to become mothers themselves. If
   she becomes a teen mother, she is 3 times as likely to remain in
   poverty.
   
   If Theresa is unable to break the cycle of poverty, violence and drug
   addiction to improve her future, how will she be able to contribute to
   America's?
   
   All of the world's children rely on American leadership for a safe,
   free and prosperous future. There is no alternative leader.
   
   The alternative to a strong America is a dark and bloody planet:
   Bosnia, Somalia, Rwanda, Haiti, Chechnya.
   
   For our children's sake, our country's sake and the world's sake, we
   must wrest control from those who refuse to take responsibility and
   insist on a plan to create a safe and prosperous future for our
   children and for ur own retirement years.
   
   Challenge is to have a Federal government that spends $ 11.7 trillion
   over 7 years and does it well enough to provide goods and services
   effectively.
   
   If we implement the 5 strategic improvements, we can actually have
   better government services with less money and a lot less Washington
   bureaucracy and red tape.

     THE STEPS TO A DO-ABLE, PRACTICAL, COMMON SENSE BALANCED BUDGET PLAN
                                       
   
   
   1995 Revenues - $1.419 Trillion
   2002 Revenues - $1,788 Trillion
   
   2002 Spending = 2002 Revenues
   $1.788 trillion = $1.788 trillion

           Budget Balanced

   
   
   Total Spending for Last 7 Years
   1989 - 1995: $ 9.5 Trillion
   
   Total Spending for the Next 7 Years
   (Under a Balanced Budget)
   1996 - 2002: $ 11.7 Trillion
   
   Social Security is off the table. No Social Security spending will be
   cut to get a Balanced Budget.
   
   Social Security Spending:
   1989 - 1995 = $ 1.997 trillion
   1996 - 2002 = $ 2.892 trillion
   
   Non-Social-Security spending will still go up every year
   
   Non Social Security Spending
   1989 - 1995 = $ 7.5 trillion
   1996 - 2002 = $ 8.8 trillion [Chart Illustrating Growth in Non Social
   Security Spending]
   
   The key to getting to a balanced budget is to be sufficiently
   innovative, creative and transformational to meet America's key needs
   while spending $ 11.7 trillion over the next 7 years.
   
   Getting to a balanced budget will save:
   $ 125 billion through lower deficits
   $ 298 billion through 1% lower interest rates
   (the Balanced Budget Dividend)
   
   Or, $ 423 billion savings on taxes just through interest savings over
   7 years
   
   If reformed litigation, taxation and regulation combine with lower
   deficits and lower interest rates, the economy will grow and Federal
   revenue will be higher [Chart Illustrating Growth In Federal Revenues]
   
   
   If we fulfill our destiny, we'll achieve:
   
   Our Vision of a Successful 21st Century America - 1
     * Every American safe from violence and drugs
     * Every willing person will be integrated into the world of work,
       property, and achievement
     * A healthy environment will be managed through sound science and a
       common sense, effective and economical approach
     * New technologies and new approaches will extend opportunities in
       learning, health and jobs to the poorest rural and inner-city
       neighborhoods
     * Government will be lean, customer responsive and effective
       
   
   
   Our Vision of a Successful 21st Century America - 2
     * A renewed American civilization with a renewed understanding of
       "Our Creator", our traditions and our institutions will have
       created a renaissance in civic responsibility and in voluntary and
       non-profit charities and activities
     * The best system of health in the world
     * Effective lifetime learning
     * New technologies and approaches to create the fullest possible
       participation of every American with disabilities
       
   
   
   Our Vision of a Successful 21st Century America - 3
   
       
     * A pro-entrepreneur, pro-science and technology, pro-savings and
       investment America that is inventing the best products with the
       highest values in the world
       
     * Job opportunities for every American with the greatest
       value-added, highest productivity, largest incomes and best job
       security in the world ass the best exporting country that creates
       american jobs through world sales
       
     * Low taxes so incomes translate into take home pay and the family
       budget has precedence over the government budget
       
     * A Regularly balanced budget with declining national debt so money
       will maintain honest value without inflation, taxes to pay
       interest will be declining and interest rates will be low
       
   
   
   The Time for Cheating Our Children has Ended.
   
   The Time to Balance the Budget has Arrived.
   
   America's Future Requires a New Dialogue and a New Partnership with
   the American People.
   
   That is what the House Republicans are dedicated to achieve in April
   and May of 1995.
