Romney is constantly trying to refocus his campaign – yesterday it was on foreign policy, today it’s on agriculture – but he’s still hasn’t offered any specific ideas to move our country forward.
Mitt Romney has reset his campaign over and over again, but still hasn’t told voters how he’s going to move our country forward. That’s because he knows his ideas would hurt the middle class. Yesterday he tried to refocus on foreign policy, and today he’s moving to agriculture – but neither speech offered any specific plans.
· Romney is pretending to outline his agriculture policy today, but he’s dodging the details because he knows his plans would hurt rural Americans.
o He didn’t mention the wind production tax credit he opposes, risking thousands of jobs in Iowa and Colorado.
o He barely mentioned the Farm Bill, failing to say what should be in it or call on Republicans in Congress to pass it. That’s probably because his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, and their allies in Congress keep blocking it.
· Yesterday Romney gave his seventh foreign policy speech, each one less specific than the last. He’d go back to the same failed policies that weakened our standing in the world.
o His speech was widely panned for lacking policy details and ignoring facts.
o Romney doubled down on an indefinite troop presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.
· Romney’s fake reboots are just as dishonest as his debate performance, where he didn’t tell the truth because he knows his ideas are bad for the middle class.
- He was dishonest about the size of his tax breaks for the wealthiest because they’re so big, he’d have to raise taxes on middle-class families to pay for them.
- He was dishonest about his health care plan because it would leave millions with preexisting conditions uninsured when they need coverage the most.
- He was dishonest about his Medicare plan because it would take away seniors’ guaranteed benefits and raise their health costs by thousands of dollars.
- He didn’t honestly lay out a specific plan for dealing with the deficit. Instead he said we should cut funding for Sesame Street.
