ROY BLUNT Can’t Name Deductions Romney Will Cut To Pay For Tax Cuts For Wealthiest
Republicans Hit Romney Over Lack of Specifics, Big Ideas
FACT CHECK: Ryan Falsely Claims Romney Has Been Specific About What He’d Do If Elected On Fox this morning, Congressman Ryan falsely claimed that Mitt Romney has been specific about what he’d do if elected. Romney has promised $5 trillion in tax cuts skewed toward millionaires and billionaires, but refused to say how he’d pay for them without raising taxes on the middle class or exploding the deficit. He’s promised to repeal Obamacare, but refused to say what he’d replace it with to protect the 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. He’s promised to repeal Wall Street reform, but refused to say what he’d replace it with so that big banks aren’t writing their own rules again.
President Obama has laid out a detailed plan to reduce the deficit in a balanced way by more than $4 trillion over the next decade, to create a million manufacturing jobs while doubling our exports, to cut our oil imports in half, to help community colleges train 2 million workers for jobs in growing industries, and to invest in our infrastructure at home:
Debates start on Wednesday – and Romney supporters are talking about this as a make or break moment for the candidate:
· CBS: Christie: Debate will turn race “upside-down”“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Mitt Romney has gone through a rough patch recently, but said that Wednesday’s presidential debate will mark a new stage in the Republican candidate’s campaign. … ‘This whole race is going to turn upside-down come Thursday morning,’ referring to the morning after the first presidential debate. ‘He’s going to lay out his vision for America,’ Christie said … Christie said Romney has a history of performing well in debates, pointing to the 20 debates held during the Republican primary. ‘That’s where he shines,’ Christie said.”
· CBS: Gingrich: Romney needs to present a “clear alternative” “Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says GOP nominee Mitt Romney has to accomplish two tasks at the first presidential debate set to take place Wednesday: Convince the public that the incumbent president should not be reelected, and also that he would do a better job. ’At the end of the debate Wednesday night, Romney has to be a clear alternative,’ Gingrich said on ‘Face the Nation’ Sunday… ‘But Romney has to be, at the end of the debate Wednesday night, a clear alternative who is considered as a potential president by a majority of the American people in order for his campaign to have a chance to live.’”
National Journal: Chris Christie on Debate: ‘Entire Narrative of This Race Will Change’ “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie played up the expectations for Mitt Romney’s Wednesday debate performance on NBC’sMeet the Press, on the same day that vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan tried to temper them. ‘Come Thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race will change,’Christie said, bucking both Ryan and others like Sen. John McCainwho have said that the debate is just one more event in the campaign and unlikely to provide a game-changing moment.”
· AP:Christie: Romney will shine in upcomingdebate“But Christie says there’s good news on the horizon for fellow Republicans. He says Romney is going to do ‘extraordinarily well’ in the first debate with President Barack Obama on Wednesday night. After that face-to-face meeting, Christie says ‘this whole race is going to be turned upside down.’ Christie tells CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ that every time Romney was backed into a corner during the GOP nomination fight, he ‘came out with a great debate performance because that’s where he shines.’”
