    Just more smoke and mirrors from the vulture capitalist. Anything Romney does for the middle class will require Vaseline, K-Y Jelly, or used motor oil; whichever one can afford.

    Uhh... yeah...
    Looks more like an outline than a plan to me.

    How?
    How? Can we get something as to what's wrong with it? What makes it "clunky" as it were.
    Which ones?
    Hey... that doesn't need a how or a why. Good.
    the skills to suCCeed
    How? Obviously it can't be MORE teachers.
    How? You going to subsidize it? I'm pretty sure Mitt knows we are in debt... o.0
    How? What does that entail?
    How?



    You know what... You get the idea. It's not a plan. It's a outline of a plan. That doesn't do anything for people who actually think.

    Those might actually be the right thing to do... But you can do it the wrong way and fuck up more than you help. "How" and "why" are important.

    I thought the tab marked issues was pretty easy to spot. Here's a bit from the energy section.
    *****************************************************
    MITT'S PLAN
    As president, Mitt Romney will make every effort to safeguard the environment, but he will be mindful at every step of also protecting the jobs of American workers. This will require putting conservative principles into action.

    Significant Regulatory Reform

    The first step will be a rational and streamlined approach to regulation, which would facilitate rapid progress in the development of our domestic reserves of oil and natural gas and allow for further investment in nuclear power.

    Establish fixed timetables for all resource development approvals
    Create one-stop shop to streamline permitting process for approval of common activities
    Implement fast-track procedures for companies with established safety records to conduct pre-approved activities in pre-approved areas
    Ensure that environmental laws properly account for cost in regulatory process
    Amend Clean Air Act to exclude carbon dioxide from its purview
    Expand NRC capabilities for approval of additional nuclear reactor designs
    Streamline NRC processes to ensure that licensing decisions for reactors on or adjacent to approved sites, using approved designs, are complete within two years
    Increasing Production

    The United States is blessed with a cornucopia of carbon-based energy resources. Developing them has been a pathway to prosperity for the nation in the past and offers similar promise for the future.

    Conduct comprehensive survey of America’s energy reserves
    Open America’s energy reserves for development
    Expand opportunities for U.S. resource developers to forge partnerships with neighboring countries
    Support construction of pipelines to bring Canadian oil to the United States
    Prevent overregulation of shale gas development and extraction
    Research and Development

    Government has a role to play in innovation in the energy industry. History shows that the United States has moved forward in astonishing ways thanks to national investment in basic research and advanced technology. However, we should not be in the business of steering investment toward particular politically favored approaches. That is a recipe for both time and money wasted on projects that do not bring us dividends. The failure of windmills and solar plants to become economically viable or make a significant contribution to our energy supply is a prime example.

    Concentrate alternative energy funding on basic research
    Utilize long-term, apolitical funding mechanisms like ARPA-E for basic research

    Any of you people think Romney has any intention of implementing any trade practices that might anger China or the US(China)Chamber of Commerce? Saw that little tidbit and nearly spit my drink.
