How many times can Republicans repackage the same old tired mantras and put them out there as a new plan; better yet, why aren’t their voters catching on?
Romney just released his “Plan For a Stronger Middle Class”, and guess what; there is absolutely nothing in it that is new or original. And if it ‘s supposed to be a plan for more jobs and more take home pay, why isn’t it a plan for the poor and middle class… oh that’s right, he’s not worried about the poor.
This is the “simplified” plan via the American Prospect:
- Increase domestic drilling, reduce regulations on the coal industry, and complete the Keystone XL pipeline.
- Sign new trade agreements and “curtail the unfair trade practices of countries like China.”
- Devolve federal programs, like Medicaid, to the states, cut spending on existing agencies and social programs, and institute a larger, long-term cut by capping federal spending at below 20 percent.
- Cut taxes, repeal the Affordable Care Act, reduce regulations, and make it more difficult for unions to organize.
Not one thing in Mitt’s “plan” will produce a job any time in the near future. As for the GOP’s worn out “tax cuts create jobs” foolishness:
As you might have heard, Reagan cut taxes; he also blew a hole in the budget by doing so, and ended up raising taxes in 7 out of 8 years in office.
G.W. Bush cut taxes, blew a hole in the budget, nobody created jobs, and here we all are.
As for Mitt Romney’s proposed tax cuts? Not only will they not create jobs; but the Tax Policy Center has declared his tax plan “mathematically impossible“.
“Simple plan” for a simpleton.
