  •  The press has been asking since April. He won't (5+ / 0-)

    answer.  That's why is so interesting.  When he was asked he said, "If I told you, I'd lose," and he cited an example from his campaign for Senator. He made a statement that he wished he didn't.  It's impossible to cut every income tax rate from top to bottom by 20% and expect to come out with the same amout of revenue.  Maybe if every taxpayers income was increased 20% at the same time.  There has to be an adjustment somewhere.  Republicans are tricky.  They'll pass the law without knowing where the revenue is coming from and it isn't collected until the following year.  I'm willing to bet money that these mofos will increase the deficit after the fuss they made about it for the last four years.

      In the debate setting, a refusal to offer up any specifics, even if the topic is raised repeatedly, would destroy any perception of Rmoney actually having a plan. Whenever he made the bogus "revenue neutral" claim, the IMMEDIATE response should have been to demand examples of tax breaks and loopholes that he would cut.
