Time for specifics

While nearly everyone seems to be looking towards 2012 and the potential end of the Obama Administration as the cure-all for the US economy, I’m not so excited. I haven’t seen nearly what I’d like to in terms of specific spending cut proposals from Republicans.

Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post makes this point in a recent article. Like them or not, Gary Johnson and Ron Paul have put forth specific ideas for reducing and ultimately eliminating the deficit. I don’t really see the same specifics coming from Mitt Romney and the other candidates.

I think the Tea Party and anyone who cares about this country needs to demand that any politician running for any federal office have a specific plan for eliminating the federal deficit. I like John Stossel’s for one,but there are other paths.
