Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming The Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity

Conservative icon Steve Forbes returns with his most powerful and provocative ideas yet

 

The United States has been through one of the most tumultuous decades in recent history. Polls show people on both sides of the ideological divide believe that the country has gone off track.  If something isn’t done quickly, Americans face a bleak future―continuing decline and disarray in a world that grows ever more dangerous.

 

Steve Forbes, two-time candidate for the GOP presidential nomination and Forbes Media Chairman, explains how today’s malaise has been caused by years of Obama’s destructive policies, a broken tax system, and the Federal Reserve’s Soviet-style controls over credit and money.

 

The problems are challenging. But Forbes tells us that, with the right policies, the country can bounce back faster than people think. In this compelling and much-needed book, he sets forth a three-part plan to revive America.

 

Patient-Driven Healthcare: The problem with healthcare, Forbes says, is that Big Government, health insurance companies, and employers are in control, not you, the patient. The key to getting high-quality, affordable healthcare is increasing competition and choice, and putting patients in charge.

 

Enact a Flat Tax: Today’s complex, corrupt tax code must be scrapped. The best answer is a simple Flat Tax. Forbes shows how this very bold reform would free America from the IRS and unleash an unprecedented wave of prosperity.

 

A Sound Dollar as Good as Gold: With its ever-fluctuating “fiat” dollar, the Federal Reserve has blocked a real recovery and is the prime cause of today’s stagnant, crisis-ridden economy. The answer?  Take the dollar out of the hands of the Washington politicians by returning to a monetary system with the value of the dollar linked to gold.

 

A clear and vital guide, Reviving America shows how the United States can recover the optimism and entrepreneurial dynamism that made it the greatest nation in history. These are 21st century solutions―not the failed ideas of the recent past. Forbes offers specific ideas and plans, not generalities and bromides, and is challenging policy makers to do the same.

    This review is from: Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming The Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity (Hardcover)
    “Reviving America” arrived yesterday. I devoured it. It might have been titled “Just What the Doctor Ordered.”
    The book is broken down into three parts – Obamacare, Flat Tax and the Fed. It is a road map of specifics as to how to rekindle America’s entrepreneurial spirit.
    Forbes deals with Obamacare and the importance of starting over and developing a free marketplace allowing patients to cross state lines. Tax-Free Health Savings Account are explained and advocated. It is refreshing to have an economist speak to our medical insurance issues instead of politicians.
    What I believe to be the best part of the book dwells on Forbes Flat Tax plan. The book changes format when discussing a Flat Tax and deals with the many “myths” that surround the plan (charitable giving for one). Forbes lays out figures to prove how fair and pro-market his plan is. WHY we are not already on a Flat Tax system is beyond me as it is simple and fair.
    The book is full of specifics yet easy to read (only 165 pages of reading).
    Perhaps the most provocative part of the books is the part that deals with the Fed. Forbes explains how the Fed has distorted our market place and calls for lending to reflect the market place and not politics. He also deals with over regulation and a return to stable standard such as gold.
    I recommend the book highly.

    Forbes’ takes a refreshing look at some of the major policy issues facing our country today and offers a practical solution that Republicans and Democrats should get behind. With each page, Forbes’ views come across clear and concise that even a policy novice will understand what he is outlining.

    Every member of Congress should add this book on their holiday reading list. Washington can clearly learn a thing or two from Mr. Forbes.
