What Republicans Have To Do To Establish Authority

Voters now expect the GOP to improve things in America.

If those expectations are not met in the next two years, Hillary Clinton has a very good chance to be elected president.

So, Republicans have to wise up and come together to pass new laws that will help all Americans.

Did you know that about 70% of all American workers earn less than $50,000 dollars a year?

Did you know that?

That means the folks are struggling.

They are living in a very insecure way.

They have little savings, and if they get sick it's a disaster.

Educating their children is a huge financial burden, as is saving for retirement. 

So priority number one is to stimulate the economy so that workers make more money.

President Obama is clueless when it comes to that.  His policies and those of the Democratic Party have constrained private industry.

There is little expansion; no wage improvement.

The Democrats lost this week because take-home pay has gone down on President Obama's watch.

So in order to stimulate the economy, Republicans need to lower the corporate income tax to about 20%.

That will give companies more money to expand, thus creating jobs. 

When there are more jobs, there is more competition for workers and salaries go up.

Number two, there should be a six-month tax amnesty on corporate money that is being held overseas.

Let the companies bring it back, provided it is invested in America … not sitting over there in Luxembourg.

Third, raise the minimum wage.  That will encourage young people to get into the marketplace and other folks to get off the dole.

Ten bucks an hour will not break anyone.

And with the corporate income tax cut, the minimum wage rise will not affect profits.

Also, the Republican Party will be seen as helping people who don't have much money.

That's an image changer.

The capital gains tax should also be cut to 15%.

That encourages private investment so more money will flow into the marketplace.

If Republicans do those things, the economy will surge, employment will rise, and so will wages.

If President Obama vetoes those things, he will go down in history as a villain.

The economy is the overriding challenge for the GOP.

Other things:

It would be a very bad idea to try to repeal Obamacare.  

President Obama will veto the attempt, so it's a waste of time. 

If a Republican gets elected president in 2016, then you repeal it.

Remember, there are some good things about Obamacare, like insurance companies can't cancel your policy if you get sick.

So the GOP should be patient on the Obamacare stuff. 

How about immigration? 

All the polls say Americans want a fair reform bill.  So Republicans should introduce one.

First the border has to be secured with an American military presence and a high-tech fence that folks cannot cross.

Also, entry policies have to be enforced. 

If you don't have a passport you can't come in.  You are turned back at the border … simple.

Once that's established, then you can fairly and humanely deal with the people already here.

If President Obama goes around Congress and legalizes the undocumented, Republicans should cut off all funding and make it impossible for the executive order to be enforced.

Finally, on social issues like gay marriage, legalized pot, that stuff ... let the states decide.

The feds should be in charge of defending us against harm and making sure the economy gives everyone a fair shot at prosperity.

If the GOP takes my advice and then nominates an honest person to run for President in 2016, it will win.

If Republicans continue to fight each other and do not compromise, the party will lose and President Hillary Clinton will be in the Oval Office. 

And that's the memo.
