Conservative Think Tank Unveils ‘Solutions For America’


Conservative think tank unveils 'Solutions for America' The Heritage Foundation, a conservative public research institute, has published a report that outlines ways in which America’s most pressing problems can be addressed.

"Solutions for America" provides an overview of 23 policy areas and includes recommendations on a wide variety of issues, including national debt and entitlement programs.

"All the recommendations have one thing in common. They would return power to the people," said Heritage President Edwin J. Feulner.

"Collectively, they will put America back on the track to prosperity and greatness," he added.

According to Heritage, it is necessary to bring public sector employees’ pay in line with salaries in the private sector and exempt retirees who are still active in the labor market from payroll taxes. Moreover, the Federal government should put a cap on the growth of welfare programs, expand incentives to seek work and turn a portion of these benefits to repayable loans, as opposed to taxpayer-funded handouts.

Further recommendations include reducing the top corporate tax rate and putting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security on five-year budgets with spending limits.

The think tank also suggests restoring the state’s primary role in providing public services such as transportation, education and law enforcement.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19927518-ADNFCR
