Principles for American Renewal

On October 2, 2014, GOP Chairman Reince Priebus published his “Principles for American Renewal”. Below is a summary of those principles from his speech.

  1. CONSTITUTION: Our constitution should be preserved, valued and honored.
  2. ECONOMY: We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.
  3. BUDGET/DEBT: We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation . with opportunity, not debt.
  4. HEALTHCARE: We need to start over with real healthcare reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.
  5. VETERANS: Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.
  6. SECURITY: Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders.
  7. EDUCATION: Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.
  8. POVERTY: The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work.
  9. VALUES: Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty, and hard work.
  10. ENERGY: We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.
  11. IMMIGRATION: We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.
