Is anybody sure where Mr. Romney stands on the issues?--other than against Mr. Obama, of course.
We don't know how he plans to balance the budget while increasing both tax breaks and military spending.
We don't know how he plans to keep the 'good parts' of so-called Obamacare while ditching the mandate without also driving insurance companies into bankruptcy--they had been counting on an increased customer base to offset the costs of covering the sickest among us.
We don't know where he thinks the upper bounds of the middle class lie--important in parsing his proposed tax changes. Is it $100,000? $200,000? $250,000? The latter seems weird, given that only a a couple of percent of households make that much, but that's what he seemed to say to George Stephanopoulos on national TV:
"GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Is $100,000 middle income?
MITT ROMNEY: No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less. So number one, don’t reduce– or excuse me, don’t raise taxes on middle-income people, lower them."
And now we don't know if he really thinks that 47% of the country don't pay taxes, depend upon government, and define themselves as victims:
We do know that he now thinks climate change is a joke, although:
"During his first 18 months as governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney spent considerable time hammering out a sweeping climate change plan to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions." (LA Times)
Who is the real Mitt Romney?
