President Obama now hitting the road if -- show for his so called Buffett rule that plan would raise taxes on wealthy investors -- Obama calls it fair.
What does the Romney team call it one each and policy director for the Romney presidential team with me now we're good morning to you.
The morning -- thanks for getting on you bet thank you for coming on Jim Messina is when the campaign managers for the Obama team he says Romney is a beneficiary of a broken tax system.
And he wants to keep it that way with things like.
Evading the Buffett rule what do you say to that.
Well here's a problem bill we've got an economy that's in Iraq crisis we've got a weak jobs report we saw on March.
And the president's policy imperative is to raise taxes.
That's always talked about for the last two weeks is raising taxes and that's the last thing this economy needs and so you governor Romney would take a different approach.
He would lower taxes across the board.
On all Americans lower the corporate tax rate and really get our economy going again what -- -- White House is gonna argue you're gonna hear from the president a matter of hours here in Florida later today.
That this is not a question of of taxes or Warren Buffett it.
It's a question of fairness.
And interpret that.
Well you know look it it's that it it's clearly if they wanna talk about fairness really what we've got to ask is it fair.
This administration has giveaways for their favorite donors in the form -- -- -- drive 500.
A million dollars is it fair that this administration.
Continues to have giveaways to public sector unions and other unions that are beneficiaries of Obama's policies.
The issue is not fairness -- the question is what do we need to do to get this economy going.
President Obama apparently thinks we -- tax.
Increases we completely disagree what this is what we found it if you initiate the buffer rule there's a big argument as to whether or not this thing we've come up for a vote in congress.
You to raise about 47 billion over about ten years.
47 billion dollars -- from the US government for a week seven working days down projected deficit over the next ten years said to be about seven trillion that's what.
We have found out what would the Romney team -- -- would -- Romney candidate.
Offer America it's.
Yeah I mean -- that's a really good plan if you look at what the Buffett rule would actually do it would raise the amount of revenue and -- in in in one year.
What would actually take to run the government for less than half today I mean it's absolutely remarkable on the president's out there saying that this rule.
Will put us on -- on a better path with respect to deficit and debt.
Mitt Romney would take us sat in a different direction.
He would debt ensure that we cut government spending to get deficits down to get our debt under control.
That we grow the economy through a mixture of reforms to our regulatory system.
And getting our tax -- under control ensuring that job creators have the certainty they need to create the jobs that Americans need.
This economy it is in a very weak form of recovery.
The march jobs report highlighted that fact.
And we got a lot of work left to do in this economy Dylan and Mitt Romney is the -- to get that work done and -- seven have months ago lot of chance thank you for the Romney team -- see the president a couple hours down in Florida thank you sir come around and expelled.
