An Economic Quote for the Day
“The bottom line is that whatever baseline you use, until Romney makes good on his promise to pay for his tax cuts, he would increase the deficit far more than Obama would.”
– The Tax Policy Center’s Robert Williams
Romney’s tax cuts for all those multi millionaires would increase the deficit by nearly $5 trillion over 10 years. That’s on top of keeping the Bush tax cuts for the rich. Romney has promised to close various loopholes to pay for his tax cuts, but he hasn’t specified which ones. And he’s not likely to because none of them are actually possibile.
