2004 Republican Platform Quotes

  •  Ushering in an Ownership Era
    •  Tax Relief: Making it Happen, Making it Permanent
      •  In 2001, President Bush signed historic tax relief into law. The 2001 law:
        •  Simplified and expanded IRAs and 401(k)s so workers can save more for their retirement;
      •  Furthermore, we believe that the federal government should be limited and restricted to the functions mandated by the United States Constitution.
    •   Homeownership
      •  In many areas, housing prices are higher than they need to be because of regulations that drive up building costs. Some regulation is of course necessary, and so is sensible zoning. We urge states and localities to work with local builders and lenders to eliminate unnecessary burdens that price many families out of the market. We see no role for any federal regulation of homebuilding. We do foresee a larger role for state and local governments in controlling the federally assisted housing that has been so poorly managed from Washington. We also encourage the modification of restrictions that inhibit the rehabilitation of existing distressed properties.
    •  Small Business
      •  Though more work remains to be done, including reauthorizing the Small Business Administration, President Bush and Congressional Republicans have made good on each of those commitments. They have:
        •  Increased federal contracts to small businesses. In 2003, small businesses received the largest percentage ever of all federal contracts. In addition, President Bush developed a strategy to reverse the trend toward bundling of contracts, a practice that has denied small businesses the ability to compete for billions of procurement dollars.
        •  Reduced paperwork. For example, 22.4 million small business taxpayers now have fewer lines to fill out on tax forms, freeing up an estimated 9.5 million hours previously used for paperwork every year.
  •  Building an Innovative, Globally Competitive Economy
    •  America's economy is the strongest in the world, and it is getting stronger thanks to lower taxes, fewer burdensome regulations, and a focus on encouraging investment. 
    •  We must maintain our commitment to free and fair trade, lower taxes, limited regulation, and a limited, efficient government that keeps up with the new realities of a changing world. By keeping the costs of running a business low and ensuring that our workers have the skills to compete in a dynamic global economy, President Bush and the Republican Congress will continue to ensure that America is the best nation in the world in which to create jobs.
    •  Lower Taxes and Economic Growth
      •  We know what brought us this success - the hard work of the American people and the Republican commitment to low taxes. Now we must keep our economy on the right path by preventing taxes on families from going up next year, making the tax relief of the last four years permanent, and reforming the tax code to make it simpler, fairer, and more growth-oriented.
    •  Protecting the Rights of Workers
      •  The President and Republican Congress have supported efforts to improve workplace safety without burdening businesses with costly and unnecessary regulations.
    •  Telecommunications
      •  Republicans have implemented a wide range of policies to create economic incentives, remove regulatory barriers, and promote new technologies, all of which are essential to making broadband competitively available and affordable.
  •  Strengthening Our Communities
    •  Long-Term Care Insurance
      •  We encourage, at all levels of government, regulatory flexibility and sensitivity to individual needs in nursing homes and related facilities.
    •  Respecting and Protecting the Environment
      • Our Party's environmental policies are geared towards results. Thanks to President Bush's strong leadership and the commitment of Congressional Republicans to reform and innovation, air pollution has been reduced, water quality has improved, wetlands have been restored, and more than a thousand brownfields sites are being revitalized.
    •  Clear Skies
      •  The President's plan also provides regulatory certainty, enabling power plants to install state-of-the-art pollution control technologies.
