A Comparison of the Republican Presidential Candidate’s Economic Plans

Bookmark and Share    As Republicans try to figure out who will be the best candidate to run against President Obama, the economy remains the number one issue affecting voter opinion in the general election for president.  And with projections of unemployment reamining high, long into 2012, combined with a way too slow rate of economic growth, rising prices and debt, low consumer confidence, and a host of other negative economic indicators that offer little hope for a turnaround, it looks like the economy will remain the top issues in 2012. 

As such, White House 2012 has prepared a chart that compares each of¬†the Republican presidential candidate’s econmic plans to one another.¬†

In the chart you will see exactly where each candidate stands on such things as the personal and corporate rates, repatriation of corporate profits made overseas, Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, capital gains and death taxes, spending, and more. 

Hopefully this comparison will serve as a¬†quick and¬†handy¬†summation of the similarities¬†and differences between the candidates.¬† But no matter how helpful¬†it may be, there is no substitution for knowing exactly what each candidate is proposing.¬† They say the devil is in the details and that is the truth.¬† While summaries are nice, knowing precisely what is involved¬†is far better.¬† That is why in addition to our summary¬†comparison chart, White House 2012 is also providing you with the links to each candidate’s actual¬†economic plan.¬† Some are more detailed than others and in that area, the most comprehensive plan of all out there is the plan outlined in Mitt Romney’s “Believe in America” proposal.¬†

While the details that Romney offer are commendable, there is also a commendable¬†trend toward to simplicity that is being offered¬†in the 2012 cycle. Each of the candidates are proposes¬†a flatter” tax code with less brackets, and several are proposing an all out flat tax. Such simplification is welcome but they also involve more than just one single tax for all. So I advise¬†you to take a good look at each candidate’s individual plan. Decide for yourself who has the best command of this most important issue and who has the best plan to deal with it.¬† Below the chart, you will find links to the most detailed information on their economic plans made available by their campaigns.
