Mitt Romney’s Debt Ceiling Prescription (VIDEO added)


Governor Romney has offered his opinion on what should be done about the debt ceiling:

Mitt Romney Breaks Silence on Debt Ceiling

It didn’t take long for Mitt Romney to field a question on the debt ceiling negotiations today during an event at the Portsmouth Rotary Club in New Hampshire.

After Romney’s opening remarks – and promising the audience that he wasn’t going to “be the cure to their insomnia” – he took questions from the audience.

The first one asked what he would do regarding the debt ceiling if he were president.

“The answer for the country is for the president to agree to cut federal spending and cap federal spending and put into place a balanced budget amendment,” said Romney. “That for me is the line in the sand.”

“It is within the president’s power to say to the leadership in the house and the senate that ‘I’ll cut spending, I’ll cap the amount of spending, and I’ll pursue a balanced budget amendment, and if the president were to do that this whole debt limit problem goes away,” he said.

In addition to the national debt crisis, Romney remarked on a variety of other issues.

TODAY is the Best Day to Donate to Mitt’s Campaign! Don’t Miss the Live Townhall Today at 3:00 EST

We have been collecting pledges for over a month now and finally TODAY is the DAY to donate to Mitt’s campaign!

It doesn’t matter if you made a pledge previously because anyone and everyone should at least chip in a few dollars today to help Mitt blow away his fundraising goal for the day. I fully expect today to be the largest single-day fund-raiser for Mitt’s campaign for the entire primary season. If you think you may donate to Mitt any time before the actual voting starts, TODAY is the DAY to have your donation have the biggest impact.

Up to 1,000 supporters of Gov. Romney are at the Las Vegas Convention Center at an event called National Call Day. The campaign has developed software (ComMitt) aimed at aiding volunteers in raising the most amount of money in the least amount of time. Gov. Romney has amassed an impressive list on contributors over the last many years and he would like as many of them as possible to donate today.

Gov. Romney hosted a live Townhall event followed by a Question & Answer session. We watched it live and you may watch it here again once the video is posted.

UPDATE 4 by Jayde – Scene where it’s all happening right now at National Call Day in the Las Vegas convention center:

On conference call with supporters earlier today, Gov. Romney said that he can win on the economy.


UPDATE 5 by Jayde: There may be Romney supporters who think The Gov’s big donors will take care of him or that he has plenty of his own money, or that your donation today wouldn’t matter. If so, remember this. Any donation, no matter the size, is GREATLY appreciated by Governor Romney. It shows him that you believe in him – enough to give your hard-earned money to him. A donation will solidify your own interest in the well-being of his campaign. You will find yourself more engaged and willing to help Gov Romney get America back on track. And, that’s a good thing.

I encourage everyone to donate at least $10 for Mitt today (more, if possible)!That’s an amount that can be easily compensated in one’s budget by eating a sack lunch this week or using a few grocery store coupons. Like my Mama used to say “Many hands make light work!” If we ALL donate, we can send a strong message for Mitt. This is the day to show Mitt how much you care about our nation. No matter how small the donation, please donate to Governor Romney today. America needs him!
