This is the kind of statement that works for the fact-checkers at WaPo, CNN, etc.
Mitt Romney: “So there’s no economist that can say Mitt Romney’s tax plan adds $5 trillion if I say I will not add to the deficit with my tax plan.”
Here’s my plan. It cuts rates by 20%. But I say I won’t add debt. So no economist can say my plan does if I say I won’t.
Makes sense, right?
