For Kaine, a Tour and an Economic Plan

April 4, 2012
Kaine's economic agenda offered few specifics, but he outlined broadly efforts to encourage growth in the economy, including through infrastructure spending, to lure a talented workforce and to push a balanced approach to budgeting that includes a combination of sending reductions and new taxes. "I do not believe we're going to get to balance just through cuts," Kaine said. During the roundtable Kaine pledged to join the Gang of Six as a senator to seek a grand bargain for the nation's long-term fiscal problem. More specifically, Kaine said would prefer a deficit-reduction ratio of roughly $2-3 in cuts for every new dollar in taxes. Though Kaine is the former head of DNC, he cast himself as a politician who "never let disagreement poison the relationship" with the other side of the aisle. He made no mention of his likely GOP opponent, former Virginia Sen. George Allen, who has spent the early-going of the campaign trying to peg Kaine as a party-line Democrat who would be "President Obama's senator." Wednesday marked the first day of a two-week long tour of the state for Kaine.
