The Romney Direction : Supercharge the Failed Bush Policies That Left the Economy Hemorrhaging 700,000 Jobs a Month and Embrace the Radical House Republican Proposals That Would Slash Millions More
- Romney has enthusiastically endorsed the radical Paul Ryan budget plan: “Anyone who has read my book knows that we are on the same page.” The Ryan plan would slash 1.7 million jobs just in the first two years, according to revered economist and former McCain advisor Mark Zandi.
- Romney insists the so-called “Balanced Budget Amendment” is “necessary.” A recent study found the BBA “would double the unemployment rate and put 15 Million Americans out of work.”
- The absence of accountability for Wall Street and big banks led to the financial meltdown in 2008 that cost 8 million Americans their jobs. But Mitt Romney promises to repeal the Wall Street Reform Act passed under this administration to hold big banks accountable and protect consumers. Romney wants to let his benefactors on Wall Street go right back to engaging in the same reckless behavior that collapsed the economy.
- If you liked the Bush trickle-down tax policies that resulted in the worst Presidential jobs record on record, you’ll love the Romney plan to give the Paris Hiltons of the world a bigger tax break and make lower-income Americans pay more – hoping that THIS TIME (fingers crossed) it’ll solve all our economic problems.

Why does Mitt Romney think doing the same things that drove the economy into the ditch -- only worse -- will yield a different result?
