I'm gonna make that that a government simpler.
Smaller and smarter.
By eliminating programs.
By sending programs back to states.
And by making the federal government itself more productive.
Well Greece protesting cuts -- Mitt Romney greasing the skids -- even big big cuts here in a speech to a Tea Party affiliated group.
Mitt Romney saying that he would cut spending -- turn -- in his first term.
But that is half what Ron Paul is already promised the cult's favorite as a -- first question.
Trillion dollars still former Minnesota governor Tim linings says and it's that's it for prize the tea parties should get behind -- plan.
Governor good to have you.
A professor Cavuto you sound like Don King here rhyming things now it's really impressive well give me time -- -- -- -- -- pictures.
You know -- governor -- -- distinct.
The rap against Mitt Romney is that he doesn't go far enough and and a lot of Tea Party devote days.
Many of them -- -- when you were running in as governor.
So you got to make some big big cuts and that even if you do the trillion dollar Ron Paul cuts are still looking at a half trillion dollar deficit.
Now of course Paul says that he.
Would balances in the thirty years presidency.
Mitt Romney makes such -- sense -- So if you're big on cutting the deficits Mitt Romney isn't your guys.
Well I I disagree first of all when you look at who's gonna grow the economy before we talk about cuts.
And who's got the most experience knowledge and success and actually doing those things and understanding those things.
But gonna grow jobs and grow the economy it's Mitt Romney by fire so let's first talk about growth and -- -- -- cuts look anybody you know out.
-- eyes then what you know Ron Paul on some of these -- -- brings in the race -- their experience you're just saying on this.
He's got more.
Well and you look at private sector experience in the actual hands on experience of forming capital deploying capital starting businesses growing businesses providing jobs and doing all the things that is -- -- adding brides turning -- private sector it's leaving aside.
Well these parents and guardians -- -- the private -- it's it's pizzas but admits is broader and deeper but I would also say deeper than a peace that down real compound.
Well absolutely deeper than pizza but also -- has been a public sector leader as governor of the state so he's got the total.
Portfolio but -- -- -- point luck spending any -- out and make up a number state and number about what they're gonna cut the mid feel strongly.
That you should set a goal that is aggressive but also achievable -- historic spending average for the United States compared to the size of the economy does eighteen to 20%.
That's where he wants to get to for starters but then -- promising additional cuts.
Why -- now governing you see another rap against Enron fairly or not sir is that.
He's ordered the bombs on to something when he realizes though it this deficit does things -- -- be a big deal of fair taxes to amounts get to be a big deal.
I better get on this thing and and so they have trillion dollars -- numbers that he used to say.
Would be too dramatic if you're doing too soon which -- Well that's not an accurate you know if you look at his record for example he -- governor of the of Massachusetts he cut taxes.
Cut spending -- -- of -- -- governor.
He is never talked a half trillion dollars in first year.
Budget cuts in fact he criticized those who talked about.
Cuts of that magnitude of soon because in this environment economy -- -- be able analyst.
Well first of all he's talked about significant cuts dramatic cuts in the past and now he's put the details on in fact one of the most.
Detailed plans of any candidate in the race and these are actually achievable.
And brother and having somebody set woman do -- and they don't deliver and then voters get cynical this is actually both aggressive but it's also something that's achievable.
And you look at this proposal it is.
Bold it is aggressive it's attainable it's achievable and it's -- thoughtful leadership and it is something that Mitt Romney excels at which is not just to talk about something.
But put the details down and actually get it done that's why one of the reasons I support him.
All right coming or is -- see you thank you very much.
Alright -- thank you.
