RNC’s “Principles of American Renewal”

 

(adopted in 2016 by the Republican National Committee)

Principles for American Renewal

Constitution
Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored

Economy
We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.

Budget
We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt.

Healthcare
We need to start over with real healthcare reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.

Veterans
Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.


Security
Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders

Education
Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.

Poverty
The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work

Values
Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty and hard work.

Energy
We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.

Immigration

We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy
