Notes on Rep. Tom Price – Defending the American Dream Summit

Pardon the format; these are my notes from the Defending the American Dream Summit.

*****************************************************************

Solutions being offered now by DC bear no resemblance to American principles.

On Health Care Reform:

1. They’ve stolen the trust between doctors and patients. Government should not interject itself in the free and independent decisions made by two people.
2. The principles of affordability, accountability, and quality – none are improved by the intervention of government.
3. The GOP offered numerous positive solutions – all were rejected by the Democrats. Some were as far back as 15 months ago. He is a member of the Republican Study Committee and urged the audience to sign up for their email alerts.
4. Tort reform – Their bill does NOTHING. The GOP had an alternative, but it was rejected.

The GOP has a strategy for the coming days:
1. Provide knowledge to Americans. ObamaCare is Bad Medicine.
2. No mandate
3. Replace those who voted for the bill, repeal it and reform the system
4. Elections have consequences. November 2008 started it all.

10 Solutions for America:
1. Never apologize for America
2. The current narrative against free market/capitalism is WRONG
3. Spending during a deficet is foolish. Starve the Beast.
4. Fundamental changes are needed in the system. HCR, taxes. He’s a big FairTax supporter. He warning a new national sales tax could be on the way; above and beyond what we already pay in income tax!
5. Americans are bright and industrious. Stop making promises you can’t keep. America can see through the lies.
6. Earmark reform
7. Use privatization to help reduce the size of government
8. Reverse the current incentive to be/stay on welfare.
9. Fix the education system. 40 years of their big experiment in education has resulted in children not having any idea what it means to be American.
10. Change in leadership.

November 2010 is the most important election in modern history.

Make it a goal to recruit 5 people every week to the cause of saving America.

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”

Sam Adams – “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

    […] Rep. Tom Price (GA-6) took the stage to a standing ovation. He said the solutions being offered now by Washington bear no resemblance to American principles. Hot topics were the current Health Care Reform legislation, the GOP strategy going forward, and ten solutions for this current predicament. He encouraged everyone to sign up for alerts from the Republican Study Committee, which you can do here. I’ll have more on his talk later. [UPDATE: Notes here.] […]
