Romney Rejects Balanced Budget

Mitt Romney recently spoke against Ron Paul's plan to balance the federal budget within three years.  There is no denying Mitt Romney is a tool of the bankers and big-government Keynesians.

Romney rejects Ron Paul-style austerity

Speaking Monday at a town hall style-meeting event in Cleveland, presumptive GOP presidential Mitt Romney plunged a fork into the idea that he could come around to embracing Mr. Paul's call for deep cuts in federal spending.
"The reason," he explained, "is taking a trillion dollars out of a $15 trillion economy would cause our economy to shrink [and] would put a lot of people out of work."

Ron Paul's plan to balance the budget includes big cuts in foreign adventures which will allow those troops and spending to energize the economy at home.  Mitt Romney has no desire to reduce military aggression and spending.

Continuing in the article:
"I think the easiest place to cut spending is overseas," Mr. Paul said at the time, reminding supporters that the nation has spent trillions in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It doesn’t make us safer. It doesn’t make us richer. It makes us poorer."
