Rob Portman’s Job Ad
That blue book can be downloaded here and it’s interesting reading.
On one hand, alarm bells go off when I read about increasing Pell grants, gimmicky proposals to repeal the payroll tax for a year, increased Federal spending on community colleges, gentle China-trade bashing, and green energy poppycock.
And if Portman’s plan is to “double Ohio’s exports” to global markets, President Obama may very well take care of this for him simply by devaluing the American dollar through inherently inflationary policies.
BUT, Portman wants to cut America’s wildly uncompetitive business tax rate to 25%, small business tax deductions, killing the “cap and trade” scheme, and a full repeal of Obamacare, he sounds far more conservative than George Voinovich and provides a stark contrast from hairy Lee Fisher.
