The Nebraska Republican Party is dedicated to principles of full employment and the creation of economic opportunity for all citizens of Nebraska through the free enterprise system. We strongly support the free enterprise system as the best path to prosperity in the history of humanity. Burdensome taxes and regulations that unduly interfere with and impede free market economics because these government burdens decrease opportunity and increase suffering.
We support aggressive and judicious recruitment and retention of businesses for the state. We support a repeal of the capital gains tax to spur economic development and create jobs. We support the establishment of fair and equitable policies of taxation and the promotion of business expansion. We encourage the use of common sense in both the elimination and enforcement of governmental regulation.
Maintaining necessary infrastructure that would include quality roads, bridges and highways, among other essential services, is imperative in fostering economic growth, interstate commerce, international competitiveness and national security. We support the establishment of enterprise zones in areas where needed to stimulate growth and development. We encourage the promotion of electronic commerce as it facilitates opportunities for economic expansion, especially in rural communities. We recognize that the revitalization and repopulation of rural Nebraska is vital to the well-being of the entire state.
Homeownership expands personal liberty, builds communities, and helps Americans create wealth. Homeownership is best fostered by a growing economy with low-interest rates, as well as prudent regulation, financial education to prevent another housing collapse, and targeted assistance to responsible borrowers.
