Mitt Romney’s economic plan to reform taxes and reduce the deficit is reminiscent of Richard Nixon’s Secret Plan to end the Vietnam War in 1968.
Nixon refused to give details and when elected, actually ramped up the war by bombing Cambodia and invading Laos. Romney releases no details of his plan, and all economists warn that his only option to make things revenue-neutral is to repeal middle-class tax breaks like the mortgage interest deduction.
Is Romney obfuscating reality and channeling Nixon?
