Economic Issues

General Philosophy: moderately capitalist

Taxes: Cut taxes as much as we can across the board.  I support the flat tax.
Spending: Cut as much waste as we can.  NO BAILOUTS.
Social Security: Partially privatize.
Space Program: It's a nice service.  I'm a bit biased since I love astronomy, but whatever.
Welfare: I don't favor eliminating welfare, but there needs to be EXTREME amounts of reform.  
Healthcare: I support medical savings accounts.
Education: Throw everything over to vouchers and charter schools.  Our system is a disaster and it's the only way I can think of that can actually help the system.  Increased spending won't help this at all.

Corporate subsidies: End all of them.
