Should of let him rot in the box.


I didnt get an answer either... he just ran behind slim when he came in with the bail out...

I am still undecided and with the promises of romney making the economy better and this actually being his strong suit, a simple explanation of how he will do that and with what strategies and principles...  If they are simply ones that obama/bush have used in terms of bush tax cuts, stimulus checks and bail outs then romney shows not advantage to me...

1.) Stop scaring small businesses ..get rid of Obamacare.,,

Small businesses have no basis to be scared of Obamacare. There is nothing that prevents the business from passing on whatever percentage of the costs of insurance to the employee. Nothing.

2.) Reduce federal spending as a share of GDP to 20%—its pre-crisis average—by 2016...dramatically reducing policy uncertainty over the need for future tax increases, thus increasing business and consumer confidence....

How? What is being cut? Will those cuts offset the hawkish foreign policy that Romney intends on enacting.

3.) Reform the nation's tax code to increase growth and job creation. ............. reduce individual marginal income tax rates across the board by 20%, while keeping current low tax rates on dividends and capital gains...

The Governors dramatic plan would also reduce the corporate income tax rate—the highest in the world—to 25%.

In addition, he would broaden the tax base to ensure that tax reform is revenue-neutral.

What on the tax code reformation will increase growth and job creation? And while the tax basis for corportations might be higher than some countries, actual corporation tax payments are among the lowest (based on the allowance of corporate tax credits). What does your savior intend on doing about this?

4.) Reform entitlement programs to ensure their viability. The Romney plan would gradually reduce growth in Social Security and Medicare benefits for more affluent seniors and give more choice in Medicare programs and benefits to improve value in health-care spending. It would also block grant the Medicaid program to states to enable experimentation that might better serve recipients.

Really? Sounds amazing. How will this be done?

5.)Make growth and cost-benefit analysis important features of regulation. The governor's plan would remove regulatory impediments to energy production and innovation that raise costs to consumers and limit new job creation. He would also work with Congress toward repealing and replacing the costly and burdensome Dodd–Frank legislation and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

What regulatory impediments to energy production so you speak?

reform the tax code to do what? 

how is obamacare scaring small businesses in the US in a way that romneycare didn't scare small businesses in mass.?

those statements dj cited are long on hope and change and short on specifics.  reminds me of someone else.

Thanks dj for doing the posting for me.

I find it fun that when one politician comes up empty with details it is applauded, while if another does it comes with criticism.

I want details and comprehensive plans from ANY politician who wants to make dramatic change..it is one of my biggest problem with the eye doctor.

I dont understand how small business owners dont actually benefit from obama care...

arent personal/small businesses then covered by obama care?

like I am the soul proprietor of my business... wouldnt I go from not being covered to having medical coverage/not having to go out and purchase one?

what if I had a small business with 3 employees... wouldnt we be covered by obamacare?

honestly, I am not sure about obama care, because as a medical professional I dont know how it will really effect our field...

but as a small business owner, I would think that obamacare would be something other small business owners could access...  I dont need to/wouldnt because I am married on a really good shared/family plain through my wife...  But say I was not married, wouldnt obamacare be a good thing?

Romney is not my savior .. I suppported Gingrich..

I only posted what Romney say's he plans to do ...as far as the how.... he's the presumptive nominee..Romney hasn't been nominated yet...

I'm sure if he is nominated there will be plenty of time for him to explain the how ...and for those details of  how to....to be challenged by President Obama during the Presidential debates..

If he is nominated to represent the GOP ..I will vote for him..because in my opinion Romney's first term would be better for the economy than Obama's 2nd term..no matter what Romney does or doesn't do ..

 

WSC,

Who is this eye doctor you have a problem with ?

I thought it was gynecologists that you didn't see eye to eye with..............

at least perry had a plan that he couldn't remember...

romney obviously doesnt have a plan, if he did he would simply lay it out and be championed for how well americans think it would work...

it really looks to me that he has nothing other the bashing obama (which describes many on this forum)...

as an undecided voter as concerning as romney's lack of transparency appears to be with his being secretive...  his lack of actual vision, planning, strategy etc is even more concerning...

Another 4 more years with the obama clan and for sure this country will fall off the fiscal cliff...

and this country will be doomed...does 20 trillion dollars in deficit look appealing to anyone? That is the projection where it would be if the obama clan has another 4 more years...ouch!

Let's get our fiscal house in order!

Romney and Ryan in 012!

Wallstreet, Let me answer your question ... he won't release his returns cause he paid next to nothing in 2008 and/or 2009.  How would he look then?  So the scrutiny he's getting for not releasing is better than the alternative.  He's a smart n sleezy politician.  If he dares go public with his returns, he couldn't win this election.  End of story.
