It represents one of the many reasons why undecided voters need to see exactly how the Republican ticket proposes to pay for its proposed marginal income tax cut. Both men have been vague in this regard, citing only that they’ll eliminate loopholes. This vagueness suggests either that they already know their plan won’t work or that implementing it requires unpopular aspects—further cuts to Social Security or higher taxes—that they don’t want to reveal until after the election.
There’s one easy way to solve this problem, of course: provide details. Because as it stands right now, the Romney/Ryan numbers just don’t add up.
