3 Questions Mitt Romney Will Never Answer

You might like to get answers to these questions. You might think the American public deserves answers to these questions before November 6. But you won’t get them anyway:

  1. Gov. Romney, what tax loopholes will you propose closing to make up for the tax cuts on the rich that are part of your economic plan?
  2. Your Medicare plan is based on Paul Ryan’s and relies on competitive bidding to bring down costs. But what if the bids all come in above your growth cap of GDP + 0.5 percent? Who pays the difference? Seniors?
  3. That 13 percent you say you paid in taxes over the past decade—that’s federal income taxes, right? And it’s based on AGI?
