Mitt Romney says Obama’s extension of unemployment benefits, 2-year extension of tax rates bad deal
Presumed Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, writes in USA Today that the GOP's deal with President Obama will hurt employment and the U.S. economy over the long term. While the short-term deal looks like a pretty good compromise for Obama's re-election prospects and for tax payers, Romney is correct when he says the deal will not produce the desired increases in employment because during the next two years, politicians will be fighting over extending the deal instead of reforming our broken tax and spend culture. Meanwhile, Romney is showing that he is in Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-SC) camp and agrees with fiscally conservative tea party supporters. LiNK: Why tax cut is a bad deal, by Mitt Romney.
