In case you haven’t seen it, Congressional Republicans have released their “Pledge to America.” It has a few very nice, solid ideas in it, specifically:
Repeal and Replace ObamaCare;
Cut Government Spending to Pre-Stimulus, Pre-Bailout Levels (2008 levels);
End TARP Once And For All;
End Government Control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac;
Those are all very good ideas as far as they go, but as Gene Healy of the Cato Institute writes, there is a lot of work needed — going far beyond the ideas contained in “The Pledge” — needed to turn around the US economy.
