Remember September 6th…
Neil Cavuto, host of ‘Your World With Neil Cavuto’ (FOX News), invited Mitt Romney to share the virtual desk with him today to share his views on a range of topics. Governor Romney spoke about the latest developments in Libya and Abdelbaset al-Megrahi (the Lockerbie bomber),corporations, Ben Bernanke, Rick Perry, the Iowa Straw Poll results, and more.
It’s happening in Nevada on September 6th! Romney told Cavuto he will be in The Silver State on that day (the state with the highest unemployment) and will release his JOBS plan. The Gov told Cavuto that he and Obama “could not be farther apart” on the issues —that his experience in the private sector sets him apart from the president.
Obama said that he would unveil a jobs plan when vacationing politicians return to DC in September – after Labor Day (about time!). Congress returns to Capitol Hill on September 6th. How far into September will we be before we get the president’s plan? (Looks like Mitt beat him to the punch…)
The GOP presidential candidate said on Fox News that he would roll out his plan the day after Labor Day, in a state he had previously visited to highlight the effects of the nation’s poor economy, particularly in the housing market.
The plan is one of a series of proposals Romney is set to begin detailing in the post-Labor Day period, when his campaign has been scheduled to kick into high gear. The tentative front-runner for the 2012 Republican nomination, Romney gave no hints as to what his jobs plan would look like.
He did, however, highlight his record on jobs and the economy, saying he was “proud” of his stewardship at Bain Capital, the private equity firm he helped found.
He also doubled down on his controversial remarks at the Iowa State Fair that “corporations are people” — a comment for which Democrats have seized to cast Romney as out-of-touch, and in favor of wealthy interests.
“If you talk about raising taxes on corporations, recognize that you’re raising taxes on people,” he said. “People pay taxes, and corporations are like people.”
