Anyone who believes that Romney will actually reduce the national debt should be bidding on the Brooklyn Bridge! He seems to be treading in Bush's footsteps - lower taxes, less regulation, and more money for the military.
What he should be doing is proposing a long-range economic plan that can be phased in over a period of years that will provide real economic growth. This plan should include a complete overhaul of the tax system to make if fairer, incentives for businesses to keep jobs in the United States, and investment in the technologies of the future and in our country’s infrastructure. The plan should also include a believable long term strategy that will gradually reduce the national debt to a more manageable level as the economy recovers.
The proposals that he has made thus far just are not believable.
