Mitt Romney has put forward one and only one specific aspect of policy: a 1/5 cut in tax rates.
Yesterday his mouthpiece Kevin "the Dow Will Be at 36000 by 2004" Hassett took it back.
Romney is now down to zero policy specifics.
Will Romney Scale Back Rate Cuts If Congress Won’t Curb Tax Breaks?: Yesterday Kevin Hassett… at a National Assn. for Business Economics debate… [said:] “The notion that Romney is going to raise taxes on low-income people is just a lie,” he insisted, “There is no way in hell he’s going to raise taxes on people making $20,000 by $2,000 bucks.”
For the record, I do not know anyone who said he would.
When asked to describe Romney’s definition of middle-class, Kevin demurred, though Romney himself has said it is “$200,000 to $250,000 and less.”… Kevin added:
If you think the base-broadeners don’t add up, if you think he can’t get to 28 percent, then the right thing that would happen, as you know, if you’re going to have a revenue-neutral reform, is that they would have a different change in rates.
