Welcome to our web site. We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to protect and advance the pursuit of the American Dream. Together we can influence change by electing responsible leaders truly committed to growing our economy, jobs and opportunities for everyone.
We believe that the greatest social program possible is a free-market economy that encourages the growth of good-paying jobs. Smaller, smarter government, cuts in spending, common sense regulatory reform that removes the burdensome obstacles and red tape that inhibit innovation and job creation are the keys to restoring our economy to greatness again.
In 2016, Illinois and the Midwest will once again be a major player in the race for the White House and congressional elections. We have an opportunity to elect leaders for our state and country who are committed to growing our economy from Main Street to Wall Street.
President Obama and his allies in Congress – including his allies in his home state of Illinois – have promoted policies that increase restrictive regulations, escalate the bureaucracy and cost of health care, protect public employee unions, and increase federal spending. If these same allies take back control of Congress, they will see only one solution—to raise taxes and further deter investment in job creation.
The stakes are high, growth and mobility for future generations is at risk.
For these and other reasons, the New Prosperity Foundation will be using resources to educate voters about issues and candidates having a direct effect on economic growth. We will employ effective, targeted tactics to communicate our message, and no punches will be pulled in making our points.
Please continue to visit our website for updates on the races and our activities. If you can help us, click HERE to contribute to our quest to create a new, prosperity-focused economy in this nation.

Chairman, New Prosperity Foundation
