2. We Will Overhaul Tax Policies
This sweeping generalization is becoming something of the norm when it comes to Presidential debates. The party looking in from the outside blames the party on the inside for the tax problems currently plaguing the nation. The quick fix: appeal to the masses by simply saying that a complete overhaul of tax policies is their first agenda. Altman promises that if a Republican wins the Presidential election and the GOP controls the two houses of Congress, renewal of debate about the ACA and huge changes in the laws will follow. If the Republicans gain complete control, they could grant certain waivers to states, giving them more control over Medicaid and allowing them to pass laws that require people to have jobs to receive benefits. By loosening tight regulations on the health insurance companies, the premiums on lower-value plans will drop to levels where it will be affordable for many people still without coverage.
3. Building a Wall to Fight Immigration
Of all the unrealistic promises that the Republicans made this 2016 Presidential election, building a bigger wall has to be close to the top of the list. If the party is serious about building a wall to keep undocumented immigrants out, then it not only would have to run along the New Mexico and Texas border, it will also have to run along the entire northern states to keep people from walking in from Canada. As silly as that sounds, the candidates are not wavering on their positions to make America “better” by keeping immigrants out. Donald Trump in particular, has stated numerous times that he has a very hard-line position on immigration, he says we either have a country or we don’t. He has made it very clear that if you came into America illegally, he is going to send you back if he is elected President. While other Republican candidates have expressed their support for building bigger walls, Trump takes things to the extreme by saying he will deport millions if necessary to make this country great again. He wants a stronger border, he wants bigger walls, and he tells the American people that walls do work, citing that one only need ask the people in Israel how the walls work. If constructed properly, says Trump, he believes he can build a strong border and then welcome anyone who wants to cross the border legally.
