Romney has a plan alright -- a plan to placate the Tea Party rabble.
But at what larger cost Mitt, to the wider American public?
At what cost to our Quality of Life?
Follow A Clear Roadmap: Build A Simpler, Smaller, Smarter Government
MittRomney.com -- Issues
Most importantly, any turnaround must have a thoughtful, structured approach to achieving its goals. Mitt will attack the bloated budget from three angles:
The Federal Government Should Stop Doing Things The American People Can’t Afford, For Instance:
* Repeal Obamacare — Savings: $95 Billion. President Obama’s costly takeover of the health care system imposes an enormous and unaffordable obligation on the federal government while intervening in a matter that should be left to the states. Mitt will begin his efforts to repeal this legislation on Day One.
* Privatize Amtrak — Savings: $1.6 Billion. Despite requirement that Amtrak operate on a for-profit basis, it continues to receive about $1.6 billion in taxpayer funds each year. Forty-one of Amtrak’s 44 routes lost money in 2008 with losses ranging from $5 to $462 per passenger.
* Reduce Subsidies For The National Endowments For The Arts And Humanities, The Corporation For Public Broadcasting, And The Legal Services Corporation — Savings: $600 Million. NEA, NEH, and CPB provide grants to supplement other sources of funding. LSC funds services mostly duplicative of those already offered by states, localities, bar associations and private organizations.
* Eliminate Title X Family Planning Funding — Savings: $300 Million. Title X subsidizes family planning programs that benefit abortion groups like Planned Parenthood.
* Reduce Foreign Aid — Savings: $100 Million. Stop borrowing money from countries that oppose America’s interests in order to give it back to them in the form of foreign aid.
Hey Mitt, will those pay-backs to the ideologues in your Party --
even make a dent in the National Debt Clock, that your Party of Grover, genu-flexes to?
Here's the rest of Mitt's 6-Point Plan for ...
MittRomney.com -- Jobs and Economic Growth
Mitt Romney will rebuild the foundations of the American economy on the principles of free enterprise, hard work, and innovation. His plan seeks to reduce taxes, spending, regulation, and government programs. It seeks to increase trade, energy production, human capital, and labor flexibility. It relinquishes power to the states instead of claiming to have the solution to every problem.
Re-build, Reduce, De-regulate, and Slash ...
But by all means Mitt, keep those "Human Capital" options "flexible" -- just the way your corporate sponsors like it, eh?
Who cares what happens to all that "indentured capital" in America anyways -- Hire or Fire it
Or ... Re-hire it back for much less -- It's all the same in Romney-land! Just numbers on a chart.
THAT is the essence of "labor flexibility" ... another critical part of, yet little-discussed bullet point, in Romney's Roadmap "Plan" -- for us very limber
Right to Work for Less -- What a Plan!
