One-on-One with Mitt Romney (Part I)

In my interview with Mitt Romney yesterday he stayed on message for growth, jobs, less debt, and smaller government. He reaffirmed that “he won’t set his hair on fire”, meaning no splashy off message statements to distract from his fundamental economic push. He acknowledged that the primaries have made him a much tougher, better candidate and more prepared to carry the fight to Obama.

He emphasized his 20 percent supply-side reduction in income tax rates. And interestingly, in response to my question, he said he would take a look at indexing the capital gains tax for inflation. That’s a pro-growth idea supply-siders have pushed for many years. I hope he finally adopts it.
