Mitt Romney: Delay Spending Cuts For A Year
Mitt Romney says Congress should delay the spending cuts agreed to last August as part of the debt ceiling deal for at least a year:
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Mitt Romney says Congress and the president should delay looming cuts in military and domestic spending for at least one year.
The Republican presidential contender said Friday during a campaign trip to Las Vegas that the cuts would be “terrible,” particularly for the military.
Romney says he wants President Barack Obama and lawmakers to work together to put, in his words, “a year’s runway,” in place to give the next president time to reform the tax system and ensure the military’s needs are met.
So all that rhetoric about cutting spending and such? Just words, apparently. Romney’s view of government is cut from the same Big Government cloth as George W. Bush.
