      five point budget plan is a retread of the Bush economic policies, except more vague.  That doesn't bother me much, as his priorities are pretty much what's expected.

      What really bothers me is Romney's insistence that he's on the side of "small business," will not raise their taxes, and in fact will cut their taxes and regulatory burdens.  Now most people think of mom-and-pop businesses as "small business" and not much beyond that.  But here is the way the SBA defines small business, which I am sure Romney knows all about.  After all, Bain Capital was a small business.

      Manufacturing: Maximum number of employees may range from 500 to 1500, depending on the type of product manufactured;
      Wholesaling: Maximum number of employees may range from 100 to 500 depending on the particular product being provided;
      Services: Annual receipts may not exceed $2.5 to $21.5 million, depending on the particular service being provided;
      Retailing: Annual receipts may not exceed $5.0 to $21.0 million, depending on the particular product being provided;
      General and Heavy Construction: General construction annual receipts may not exceed $13.5 to $17 million, depending on the type of construction;
      Special Trade Construction: Annual receipts may not exceed $7 million; and
      Agriculture: Annual receipts may not exceed $0.5 to $9.0 million, depending on the agricultural product.
