GOP's Economic Reset

From The New York Times:

House Republicans will seek to reset the economic-policy debate Thursday, offering a broad plan to boost jobs and growth by easing tax and regulatory burdens.

The plan includes a 25% top tax rate on corporations and individuals, compared with the current 35%, as well as higher domestic-energy production, new curbs on government regulations and overhauls of U.S. patent and visa systems to help entrepreneurs and high-tech firms.

Reflecting the GOP consensus that tax increases won't be a part of any eventual budget deal this year, the plan calls for "significant spending cuts" to rein in government deficits.

All good, straightforward policies, but they should include immigration reform. Given that we can't employ the people we've already got, it's stupid to keep importing working-age people into the country. And illegals should never be tolerated, even when the economy is good.
