House Plan for American Jobs & Economic Growth

Republicans have a plan that lays the groundwork for a stronger economy and a brighter future for all Americans. It includes some simple things most of us can agree on, some tough choices and a lot of common sense. These conservative solutions will help create new jobs today, make life work for families across the country and expand opportunity for everyone – without expanding government.
 
Here’s how we’d do it:
Energy Independence
An "all of the above" approach that expands American energy production will help create jobs, boost manufacturing and make energy more affordable.
Lowering Health Care Costs and Bolstering Research
Repealing ObamaCare, enacting patient-centered reforms and eliminating wasteful government spending so we can focus on disease and disorder research will improve care as well as bring down the costs that strain families and make it harder for small businesses to hire.
Expanding Education Opportunity
Reforming federal education policies to empower parents with choice and equal opportunity to seek great teachers and schools and improve access to college and skills development will better prepare students for tomorrow’s job market.
Simplifying the Tax Code
A simpler, flatter tax code without all the loopholes will be fairer for everyone, bring jobs home and help make American innovators and manufacturers more competitive.
Controlling Spending
Stopping wasteful spending, strengthening priorities like Medicare and replacing the president’s sequester with smarter cuts and reforms that help us balance the budget – just like families do – will help pay down our debt and preserve the American Dream.
Fostering Innovation
Keeping the Internet free from government regulation, stopping cyber-attacks while protecting our privacy and modernizing our laws will help promote technological innovation and entrepreneurship.
Reforming Immigration and Border Security
Securing our borders, enforcing our laws and making the process of becoming a legal immigrant fairer and more efficient will help America remain a magnet for the brightest minds and hardest workers. 
Reining in Red Tape
Removing artificial government barriers and red tape will preserve and strengthen Americans’ ability to build, grow and compete with anyone.
Expanding Markets for Manufacturers and Small Businesses
Opening new markets for American-made goods will help lower prices for consumers, create better, higher-paying jobs for workers and attract new investments in the United States.
Stopping Waste and Fixing Broken Government
Responsible oversight of government operations will help remove obstacles to growth and ensure accountability for taxpayers.
