Romney Plans Not Full of Details
Mitt Romney has promised to repeal the healthcare plan of President Obama if he is elected president. He also has promised to change the Medicare system and slash corporate income taxes. Romney said he would try to shrink the government’s size dramatically in his first term to make Americans less reliant on the government for many basic services like food stamps and healthcare.
He success rate will depend greatly on the cooperation he receives from Congress. He has an ambitious list of goals he wants to accomplish starting from his first day in the Oval Office.
Romney cannot replace, through repeal, the healthcare reform Obama put into place. However, Romney said on day one of his presidency he would issue an executive order making federal officials shift the authority over aspects of the healthcare program to states. He would order a number of agencies to eliminated regulations put in place during the Obama-era that burdened unduly job creation and the economy.
He has also said he would tell the Treasury Department to label China immediately, as a manipulator of currency. He outlined last week while in New Mexico his plan to start issuing drilling permits for domestic gas and oil exploration.
He plans to also introduce a number of bills during his first day in office. They include: measures to cut to 25% the corporate tax rate, cut by 5% non-security spending, hand over authority to states for retraining programs for federal jobs and order the Interior Department to survey energy reserves in the U.S. with the aim of opening more areas for exploration domestically.
What are lacking in all of his plans are details. He has many plans and ideas to implement if elected, but he has not given specific details on those plans or ideas.
