These are the words used to describe the Romney-Ryan budget plan by economists, The Washington Post, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center and Bloomberg News.
Mitt says his plan will cut taxes for all Americans, increase defense spending and still cut the deficit. And, get this; he claims that his plan will be revenue neutral. He says that the costs will be offset by the elimination of tax deductions. Yet he steadfastly refuses to provide details. The only cuts hes mentioned are funding for Public Broadcasting and Planned Parenthood.
In fact, after more than a year of campaigning for the office of President of the United States, Mitt has not provided any numbers for his plan…until tonight.
During the second debate with President Obama, Mitt announced the number five…in reference to his 5-point plan for the economy. But dont expect Mitt to provide any details for that plan, especially with regard to his budget figures.
He either can’t, or won’t.
Romney cant explain his budget plan. Liein Ryan cant explain it. And one of the campaigns top surrogates cant explain it. When Sen. Marco Rubio was asked by Lawrence ODonnell to name the tax deductions that would be eliminated, he admitted he couldnt name a single one.
Instead of offering details about his plan, all Mitt says is trust me. Now, tell me, Mitt, why would we do that? You say one thing today. Then a day or two later, you say something else. Youve had at least four answers to every question. Indeed, youve had more positions than the Kama Sutra.
When it comes to your economic plan, Mitt, Ill trust the opinions of President Obama, President Clinton, most independent media, and non-partisan economists.
