Fixing Everything provides citizens with a blueprint to retake control of the federal government and reassert American leadership in a world gone astray. This integrated solution will limit government spending to a reasonable percentage of GDP; close agencies responsible for 60% of government spending; dramatically simplify taxes; reduce, quantify, and manage entitlement commitments; present a new form of free market healthcare organization; confront pension liabilities; encourage legal immigration, while discouraging illegal immigration; contain legal awards and costs, while encouraging early settlement; reduce crime; and put an end to the "nanny" state. Citizens will assume personal and financial responsibility for their actions and well-being. A new form of safety-net will avoid mal-incentives, while encouraging effort and initiative.
