    Mitt Romney is no ideologue.. He is a man who understands capitalism as defined by free markets... Our economic engine is in need of a real fix, not the expensive and short sighted jump start that Obama tried and wants to repeat.

    Yes, finally, a leader to get us headed in the right direction!

    Romney begins with five bills he would introduce and five executive orders he would issue on his first day in office:

    FIVE BILLS FOR DAY ONE

    The American Competitiveness Act
    • Reduces the corporate income tax rate to 25 percent

    The Open Markets Act
    • Implements the Colombia, Panama, and South Korea Free Trade Agreements

    The Domestic Energy Act
    • Directs the Department of the Interior to undertake a comprehensive survey of American energy reserves in partnership with exploration companies and initiates leasing in all areas currently approved for exploration

    The Retraining Reform Act
    • Consolidates the sprawl of federal retraining programs and returns funding and responsibility for these programs to the states

    The Down Payment on Fiscal Sanity Act
    • Immediately cuts non-security discretionary spending by 5 percent, reducing the annual federal budget by $20 billion

    FIVE EXECUTIVE ORDERS FOR DAY ONE

    An Order to Pave the Way to End Obamacare
    • Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health care solutions that work best for them

    An Order to Cut Red Tape
    • Directs all agencies to immediately initiate the elimination of Obama-era regulations that unduly burden the economy or job creation, and then caps annual increases in regulatory costs at zero dollars

    An Order to Boost Domestic Energy Production
    • Directs the Department of the Interior to implement a process for rapid issuance of drilling permits to developers with established safety records seeking to use pre-approved techniques in pre-approved areas

    An Order to Sanction China for Unfair Trade Practices
    •Directs the Department of the Treasury to list China as a currency manipulator in its biannual report and directs the Department of Commerce to assess countervailing duties on Chinese imports if China does not quickly move to float its currency

    An Order to Empower American Businesses and Workers
    • Reverses the executive orders issued by President Obama that tilt the playing field in favor of organized labor, including the one encouraging the use of union labor on major government construction projects

    What a hoot. I opened your link and figure 2 graphs Jobless Recovery's. The last bar shows Obama's recovery - 2007 to 2009. As most of us know Obama took the oath of office in Jan. 2009 and the budget for 2009 was one he inherited from Booooooosh.

    I already emailed them about figure 2.

    However, look at figure 3.......that one doesn't have an incorrect label ;)

    His Bills for Day, I like them all. However, I am wary of the South Korea FTA. SK is notorious for taking punitive measures against us inthere so called free trade. First, they don't allow US automakers to market primetime. Second, they have special sales tax on US products, esp cars. Third, they use many other protectionist measures. If we are protected against that them I am better with it.

    Is $20billion really 5% of the budget? Wow. Needed first step.


    Executive Orders: I hope he targets Bush and Clinton bills also, but I like them

    The timeline refers to the stimulus in relation to job loss! The Stimulus WAS Obama's recovery effort-the graph illuminates its failure.

    The problem is that he wanted a "gottcha moment" or he could have seen what the graph intended to communicate.
