The Solution to America’s Fiscal Crisis:

Returning Power and Taxing Decisions to the States

 

Mr. Matt Mayer

Associate

The Liberty Foundation of America

 Where do you want the focus of government power to reside – in Augusta, ME or Washington DC?

 

From the price of fuel to the type of light bulbs we can use to how we run our local schools, the federal government’s presence in our day-to-day lives is as pervasive as ever.

 

After 80 years of progressivism, many Americans cannot envision a federal government less intrusive or powerful than it is today. That said, the current arrangement was not inevitable or foreordained. It was not the natural outcome of America’s experiment with limited government. There is a better way as pointed out in the Constitution – Competitive Federalism - which returns power and taxing decisions to the states.

 

We must move the discussion away from populist promises to raise taxes on certain segments of Americans or to cut government by programmatic picking and choosing, to the real issue—where do Americans want the focus of government power over their lives to reside?

 

Join MHPC and Matt Mayer, Associate with The Liberty Foundation of America,

as we present 

The Solution to America’s Fiscal Crisis:

Returning Power and Taxing Decisions to the States.

 

Mr. Mayer will discuss and highlight his recent report titled 

Competitive Federalism – Leveraging the Constitution to Rebuild America.

 

Join us as we stand for a stronger, more prosperous Maine!
