. Medical Care: "It provides universal access to affordable health coverage, not by expanding government, but by reinforcing the role of consumers -- patients -- in a truly competitive marketplace. In conjunction with this, the plan takes on the necessary task of restructuring the government's medical entitlements, making them sustainable for the long term."
. Social Security: "It saves and strengthens Social Security, making the program sustainable for the long run, and helping expand investments needed for economic growth."
. Taxes: "It offers an alternative to today's needlessly complex and inefficient tax code, providing the option of a simplified mechanism that better promotes and rewards work, saving, and investment."
. Jobs: "It helps the Nation's workforce prepare for success in the global economy by transforming 49 job training programs, scattered across eight agencies, into a flexible, dynamic program focused on results, and accompanied by clear measures of transparency and accountability. The plan requires the development of performance measures, and gives each State the option to consolidate funding into one program, if such an approach can be shown to improve outcomes and achieve job training goals."
Clearly, Rep. Ryan's roadmap points the way to a robust economy free of government meddling, while Barack Obama's way guarantees a dreary economy managed by power-crazed Washington bureaucrats.
