Wasserman Schultz Slams Romney's Economic Plan

Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., slammed GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney's expected economic proposals on Tuesday, offering a possible preview of DNC talking points if the former Massachusetts governor were to win the nomination.

Wasserman Schultz said on CNN's American Morning that President Obama in his economic address this week must “make sure we don't go in reverse and return to the same failed policies of the past,” specifically referencing Republican ideas expected to be included in Romney’s economic plan set to be unveiled on Tuesday.


"The bar for Mitt Romney is pretty high in his proposal that he's going to be releasing," Wasserman Schultz said. "If it matches what his track record is, which was 47th in job creation as governor of Massachusetts and never recovering all the jobs that they lost in 2001 during that recession, then we've got a big problem.

“What I expect is that we'll hear more about tax cuts, more about helping big business with deregulation, allowing the fox to guard the henhouse. And that's what got us into a huge economic problem in the first place with massive job loss.”
