Mitt Romney Criticizes Obama’s Second Term Plans
The presidential campaign is heading to its final weeks and Republican candidate Mitt Romney bolstered its attack of President Barack Obama’s plans for his second term. He accused the incumbent president of failing to tell Americans what he would do for the next four years.
The Obama campaign tried hard to dispute the claims made by Romney. They rebutted that it was Romney who didn’t provide the details to voters. During campaign events as well as a new ad, Romney wants to portray his campaign as the ambitious one compared to President Obama’s small campaign that offers little new policy. He said that he would change the nation’s tax code and entitlement programs.
The new ad from Romney campaign criticized President Obama’s policies on health care, debt, taxes, Medicare and energy. It said that Obama was offering the same for the next four years in office. The campaign didn’t say where it would air the ad.
The Obama campaign disputed the notion that the president didn’t provide a detailed agenda for his second term. They said that the president has repeated time and again his calls for immigration reform, fully implementing the health care overhaul, removing tax breaks for upper income tax earners, and ending war in Afghanistan.
With regards to the economy, President Obama called for reintroducing legislation that stalled in Congress during his first term that includes tax credits for companies that hire new workers and funding municipalities to hire more police officers, teachers and firefighters. The president said that his re-election would break the fever on Capitol Hill that has led the gridlock in Congress.
The president’s aides were angered by the questions regarding Obama’s second term agenda. They said that it was Romney who failed to give voters details about his agenda. They pointed at the Republican candidate’s failure to provide details regarding his tax plan or what he wants to implement in place of Obama’s health care overhaul.
