Mitt Romney declared in his acceptance speech “And unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs.”
Sounds great! Especially from someone who claims that government doesn’t create jobs. And hasn’t actually, you know, told us what he would do.
So how can Romney claim he will do it? Easy!
Moody’s Analytics just this month predicted that 12 million new jobs would be created in the next four years, no matter who is president. And back in April, Macroeconomic Advisors predicted a gain of 12.3 million jobs.
Ironically, while Romney claims that Obama has no plan, Obama has already executed his plan to create 12 million jobs.
If elected, the best plan for Romney would be to just sit back and take advantage of Obama’s turnaround of the economy. But I doubt that he could do that, since Republicans are hell bent on cutting even more taxes for the rich, increasing military spending, increasing taxes for the middle class, and otherwise driving us off the fiscal cliff into a new recession.
