Mitt Romney launched a new economic plan on Wednesday. Some of us were happy to see one because his last plan was only slightly better than Obama, so it was good to seem “go bold.” Of course we also would have preferred he did this because he believed in it and not just because he’s not doing well in the polls, but baby steps.
His new plan is impressive. Jim Pethokoukis (read his full write up here) says that Romney went “the full Reagan.” Sounds great, but this is Romney so you always have your doubts as to how serious he is, or how seriously he’ll fight for the plan.
“But for high income folks, we are going to cut back on that, so we make sure the top 1% keeps paying the current share they’re paying or more.”
Ok, so Mitt? Real talk. Why are we supposed to believe you’re serious aboot your conservative economic reform plan, when you’re already back to use the rhetoric of President Obama and the Democrat endorsed Occupy Wall Street?
