Romney's 5 Trillion + 2 Trillion

I understand that Romney said he won't sign off on any bill that costs $5T. But his tax cut will amount to that cost plus another $2T for Defense Spending which is more than the pentagon has asked for.

He said this will be made up by closing Tax Loop Holes and a 20% cut across the board on federal spending programs.

The simple fact is there is not enough tax loop holes to cover 7 Trillion. To deny this means you're insane. Please do not respond to this thread if you think there are enough tax loop holes to cover his plan. I only want to hear from people that have a reasonable grasp on reality.

So this means the balance will have to come from the 20% cuts across the board according to R's economic plan. But Romney will not give any real details (about which programs that can have a meaningful impact on the budget) will be cut. Please don't come in with laughable suggestions such has his example of cutting PBS, which is around .0004% of the budget. That amounts to less than the water vapor in the barrel.

So my question to Repubs, Conservs, Libs leaning Conservative, and whoever will vote for Romney:

Does it concern you that your candidate does not have concrete answers as to what will be cut in the 20% except for examples that won't even scratch the budget's surface (e.g. PBS)? And does it not make you uneasy when he says we need to talk to him after he's in the white house to get more details?

It does not bother me at all. Do you want to see America go totally bankrupt with the Obama "more of the same" plan?

Where would you be without liberal internet sites to tell you what to say?

Too bad it is just old BS that has ripened and is making those who spread it smell worse than the untruth being told.

I believe Romney is an honest man that will work in a bipartisan way to help America out of our problems. Obama will NEVER do that. Only his communist father's dreams are important to him. His birthright you know.

Anyone still following obama and the load of crap he is peddling does not understand what is going on.

Anything he can do will be better than Obama doing nothing. End of story. It's Romney or trillion dollar deficits every year from Mr KnowNothing-DoNothing-KeepSpending.

Obama was required by a law that he negotiated and signed to define what cuts would be made in sequestration a couple weeks ago. Obama has not done that. The ball is in his court.

I'll be waiting.

His plan sounds great to me. I can wait until he is in the White House. He cannot reveal too much or the O will make some cheesey commercials about how it cannot work. Kinda like your first post.
