The failure of the nation’s entitlement system cries out for an entirely new approach. Instead of the negative politics of cutting benefits for the poor, seniors, and those who need health care, the increased productivity and market incentives of pro-growth entitlement reform would result in better benefits and incomes for the poor and seniors, and better health care for the sick. At the same time, pro-growth entitlement reform would reduce taxes and government spending by the greatest amounts in world history.

This book presents a comprehensive entitlement reform agenda. These reforms are all positive and populist, producing far better results for the poor, seniors, and those who need health care. Over a generation, these reforms would reduce federal taxes and spending by at least half from what they would be otherwise. They are all proven reforms that have been tried and have worked spectacularly in the real world.

The proposed reforms are not only politically feasible: They would be politically popular as well. They are fundamentally based on the concept of individual choice. These are the reasons why the title of this book is “Power to the People.”  Elected officials who have run on these themes and ideas have won elections in the past and will in the future. Those who oppose these reforms are on the losing side of history.

These reforms would contribute to far greater economic growth and prosperity for all. They are the key to enabling the United States to avoid the financial catastrophe of Greece and other European social-welfare states. This is what makes entitlement reform more than politically winnable. It is absolutely necessary to saving our country from ruin.
