I'm a proud American and Floridian. Our beautiful and diverse state has given me and my family a home, where we've been blessed to freely pursue our dreams and stake out an honest living.
Florida is now one of the leading states in the nation, and is among the top 4 biggest economies in the country. Together, we can make Florida the epicenter of American productivity and culture.By combining innovation, togetherness, and smart business sense, we will build a new age of Greatness for Florida and America: one where our people have good jobs, our kids get ahead, our streets are safe, and our vets are taken care of.
No American will miss basic medical care by inability to pay
I will offer a far-reaching set of proposals for improving America's health care and making it available more fairly to more people. I will propose:
A program to insure that no American family will be prevented from obtaining basic medical care by inability to pay.
I will propose a major increase in and redirection of aid to medical schools, to greatly increase the number of doctors and other health personnel.
Incentives to improve the delivery of health services, to get more medical care resources into those areas that have not been adequately served, to make greater use of medical assistants, and to slow the alarming rise in the costs of medical care.
New programs to encourage better preventive medicine, by attacking the causes of disease & injury, and by providing incentives to doctors to keep people well rather than just to treat them when they are sick.
The secret of mastering change in today's world is to reach back to old and proven principles, and to adapt them with imagination and intelligence to the new realities of a new age. As we look back at those old principles, we find them as timely as they are timeless:
I believe in independence, and self-reliance, and the creative value of the competitive spirit.
I believe in the family as the keystone of the community, and in the community as the keystone of the Nation.
I believe that a person should get what he works for--and that those who can, should work for what they get.
I believe in the capacity of people to make their own decisions in their own lives, in their own communities--and I believe in their right to make those decisions.In applying these principles, we have done so with the full understanding that what we seek in two thousand and seventeen, what our quest is, is not merely for more, but for better for a better quality of life for all Americans.
For most of our history, a plentiful supply of energy is something the American people have taken for granted. But that assumption has been brought sharply into question within the last year. To help meet this challenge, my program includes the following elements:
An expanded program to convert coal into a clean gaseous fuel
Make available the energy resources on federal lands
Acceleration of oil and gas lease sales on the Outer Continental Shelf, along with stringent controls to protect the environment
A leasing program to develop our vast oil shale resources.
Controlled thermonuclear fusion research
Magnetohydrodynamic Power Cycles to convert coal and other fossil fuels into electric energy
Solar Energy: The sun offers an almost unlimited supply of energy if we can learn to use it economically
Geothermal Energy: There is a vast quantity of heat stored in the earth itself.
One thing history tells us is that no great movement goes in the same direction forever. Nations change, they adapt, or they slowly die.
The time has come for a new partnership between the Federal Government and the States and localities--a partnership in which we entrust the States and localities with a larger share of the Nation's responsibilities, and in which we share our Federal revenues with them so that they can meet those responsibilities.
To achieve this goal, I propose Congress enact a plan of revenue sharing historic in scope and bold in concept. Term limits are a MUST.
