Whenever Mitt Romney releases a plan, you know that he never goes light on the specifics. Today, the former govenor of Massachusetts has released his 150 page book that gives the American voter a comprehensive outline of his plan to turn our economy around and create jobs.
The Washington Post has brief outline of his plan:
They would include five proposed bills that would: lower the corporate tax rate to 25 percent from 35 percent; implement free-trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea; expand domestic energy exploration; consolidate worker retraining programs and turn them over to the states; and cut non-security discretionary spending by 5 percent. (Obama also supports those three trade agreements, although he has been accused of dithering to satisfy the demands of organized labor.)If elected, the former Massachusetts governor said he would also issue five executive orders on Inauguration Day. They would roll back President Obama’s health-care overhaul; eliminate Obama-era regulations; issue new oil-drilling permits; sanction China for currency manipulation; and reverse a number of policies that favor organized labor.Romney also said he would cut the size of the federal workforce by 10 percent through attrition, possibly by hiring only one new government employee for every two who leave.
In addition to proposing 5 bills to Congress and issuing 5 executive orders, Mitt Romney also has 59 concrete steps that he will implement that will spur the economy quickly and create jobs immediately. To see these 59 proposals, you'll have to read Mitt's book which you can also download for free on your Kindle at Amazon.com
No one has ever released a comprehensive plan of any kind in recent primary campaign history. No other candidate has released a sweeping and detailed plan as Mitt Romney. in this election. I think Mitt Romney has started a new trend that should be a permanent part of American campaign elections. Every candidate ought to release a detailed and in depth plan for the economy in every election.
In fact, this is a direct challenge to other candidates because they will have to come up with an equally detailed economic plan if they want to demonstrate to the American people that they are competent enough to be in the White House.
My challenge for Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, John Hunstsman, Herman Cain and Thaddeus McCotter is this: Where is your detailed and comprehensive plan for the economy?
If you don't have one, you don't deserve to be elected as President of the United States.
