In my latest interview with Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor emphatically defends his own business success against Obama’s class-warfare/Buffett Rule/Romney Rule attacks. Don’t look for Mitt to back off from his free-enterprise vision.
He also told me hewill go after HUD and DOE for budget cuts and consolidation, along with a slew of other agency cuts. He also will roll back tax deductions for upper-earners while he lowers marginal rates by 20 percent across-the-board. He does not want more stimulus from the Fed. And he thinks blaming speculators for high energy prices is completely wrong.
He would roll up his sleeves to deal with taxmageddon immediately during his transition if elected. And wants his veep to be able to lead the country as president if that were necessary. He believes women can meet that requirement, as well as men.
