"Congressman Paul Ryan’s “A Roadmap for America’s Future” is a comprehensive, bold solution to America’s serious problem of rapidly rising debt. CBO scores the Roadmap reforms as achieving full solvency for Social Security and Medicare, and eliminating all long term federal deficits, balancing the federal budget for the long haul. The Roadmap includes tax reform with a low rate of 10% for most workers, and a maximum rate of 25%; health care reform that puts individuals in charge and leads to health retirement security in the future; and Social Security reform that empowers individuals to achieve financial independence. In the process, the Roadmap would restart the American jobs machine, and restore traditional American prosperity.
All of Paul Ryan’s proposals rest upon the core American values of individual freedom and limited government, which explains why the Left is so threatened by the Roadmap for America’s Future and has spent so much energy attacking it. But these are not Democrat or Republican problems – they are problems we must solve as Americans. I know Congressman Ryan remains committed to improving the quality of life for all Americans, both now and in the future, and this Roadmap represents a comprehensive way to achieve that."
