TPPF's "Recovery Agenda" Good Place to Start

"But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:31

All of this please:

Additional thoughts:
  • The federal stuff might be complicated, but there's no good reason for the state stuff to not happen.
  • There's a pretty good case to make for completely abolishing the FDA, although dramatically streamlining it might be a more realistic proposal.
  • "Eliminate regulations not necessary for public health and safety" = 90%(+) of all regulations.
  • Across all levels of government, MASSIVE, unprecedented, deregulation is the only way we'll be able to generate the levels of growth we'll need to climb out of this fiscal mess.
  • We're surprised efficiency audits weren't included on this list, because identifying pure waste ought to be step one for climbing out of this fiscal hole.
  • We're not sure why "Expanding Telemedicine" falls under the Texas legislature section, because it's our understanding that the primary obstacles are federal.
  • "Scope of practice" (ie. Allowing nurses to perform tasks traditionally performed by so-called 'licensed physicians') reform, if not outright abolition, should also be on this list.
  • Texas has had applications for Medicaid waivers pending since Dubya's final year in office.
Bottom Line: Most of this should have been done decades ago, but since that didn't happen, no time like the present.
