Romney touts fiscal plan, avoids fray on Iowa trip http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2011/11/07/national/a122004S28.DTL&type=health
During the Iowa stops, he tested an update of his standard campaign speech, incorporating the new economic policy he proposed last week. In it, Romney pledges to cut $500 billion from the federal deficit in his first four years in office.
In Davenport, he listed the National Endowment of the Arts, National Endowment for Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Amtrak as programs that may be cut or eliminated under a Romney administration.
“I think it’s time for programs that we like but we simply can’t afford to be stopped or to be cut back and make it on their own,” he said, prompting applause. “And I’m going to do that.”
Every one does understand that “cutting spending” translates to “firing people”, right?
Looks like 2012 is shaping up to be a contest between a venture capitalist and a community organizer.
What are you in the mood for, America?
