The Center for a Free Economy believes that getting fiscal policy right is the heart of getting government economic policies right. That means a pro-growth tax code which raises enough money for modest and well-designed government spending programs. Essential to fiscal policy is health care policy, which today dominates both tax and spending outlooks.
The Center for a Free Economy believes in a health care system which is focused on the empowered patient and her doctor. Neither the government nor big business forces in the healthcare system should not get between patients and providers. Families need the means to take control of their own health care decisions. It’s also important to remember that health care policy these days is tax policy, and vice-versa.
The Center for a Free Economy knows that good regulatory policy is the handmaid of good fiscal policy. Those who invest capital and create jobs need to know that they won’t be restrained by tangles of regulatory red tape.
