“Friends, I’m here to tell you what will make this country greater than ever. It’s to follow the principles of capitalism.
“A capitalistic country must compete. Our country is not competing like it can.
“One reason is our health system is too expensive and ineffective. We need to apply capitalistic principles.
“Capitalism, private firms, have insurance. Each firm tries to minimize its risk by pooling risk with others. Individual people are tiny businesses who generate wealth and spend it. They need to spread their health cost risk.
“The risk can be spread over all citizens. We don’t follow this capitalistic principle now. That’s what I did in Massachusetts, that’s what our country needs to do to compete.
“A successful business needs to make profitable use of all its resources. We are not doing this. We are singling out some of our resources, people, and not using them profitably.
“These are the American-born children of immigrants. Gay people and women need to be including in every right others have.
“Our capitalist businesses stress accountability from every corner of their operation. A capitalistic country needs to do the same. It needs to regulate financial institutions so they make loans on sound assets.
“The market price of anything is based ultimately on matching cost to benefit received. Rich people get most of the benefit from the military and government subsidies of industries. They should pay for what they receive like we do at the mall.
“Vote for capitalism. Vote for me.”
