Economy

1. We oppose all efforts of State government to pick winners and losers in the economy. We oppose handouts and bailouts to businesses; we will dismantle the WEDC entirely.
2. We propose elimination of the State income tax, which will directly benefit many small business owners and self-employed citizens.
3. We oppose any State licensing or fees that have the effect of producing barriers to entering markets or professions for entrepreneurs or workers.
4. We will review all levels of State regulation with an eye to eliminate or reform any that create an unreasonable barrier to business creation or expansion.
5. We reject the idea that it is the duty of government to create or protect jobs. A market economy free of unreasonable State interference and crony capitalism will produce more jobs than any misguided government program.
6. We will advocate for free international trade because free trade directly serves all of Wisconsin’s industries best.
