Romney promises 12 million jobs in four years

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Mitt Romney's economic advisers issued a rosy set of projections Thursday that predict 12 million new jobs and a sharp economic expansion if the Republican candidate were to capture the White House.

The paper, authored by four conservative economists, projects that the Romney plan would add between 0.5% and 1% per year in gross domestic product growth over the next decade.

    Tomorrow Mittens will admit that those jobs are in India, and pay $2.25 per hour. KMA Mittens.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! This is exactly what Dumbya proposed and look where it got us. Nice try, Willard. Just curious, but what spending do you plan to cut? And don't spare the details. Oh, wait a minute, you really have no idea...

    He can promise that sure. Anybody can make promises and all that stuff. What if Something happens in Europe and they fall back ? There are NO real promises that any President can make. We all know that and Romney knows that too. At least the POTUS is being real and telling us there's more to do and it's going to take this Presidency and mabe another 1 to get back to somewhere close to where we were. Romney needs to be honest and thats something he is NOT !

    12 million more American jobs in 4 years is entirely doable. After watching the struggles of the last 3 years, of course there will be skeptics, but there is a huge difference in strategies. Using Obamanomics, the federal government does all the heavy spending and company building, of course financed by the taxpayers and national debt. But Mitt Romney's strategy is to put all of America's private sector capabilities on the task and this is how it can be done. Let's face it, the federal government is $16 trillion in debt and it is still increasing without end. The government is not the answer. But private American businesses are a powerful ally. They ( We ) can do it. We have to. It's our nation. Romney 2012.

  12. Wake up people

    Where are the taxes Willard?

    This liar would do anything to win the White House. Willard, you remind me of a word that rhymes with more but starts with a W. If he wins, we all lose.

    OBAMA 2012!

    Is this 12 Million Jobs in America or sent Abroad. If this is the case and he wins the presidency (we can only pray that it happens in his dreams), does this mean if he fails to follow through with this promise he wont be seeking a second term.

    Third world countries that Mittens ships jobs to do not have a middle class, unions, a decent standard of living, but do have a plutocracy for the wealthy elite or a hierarchy of war lords.

  19. once upon a horse

    did it mention WHAT country these jobs would be created in? They talk about lower corporate tax rates, but corporations here are sitting on trillions of dollars of profit and STILL not hiring. Sorry Mitty you're selling but I ain't buying.

    I don't doubt it, this is what he does for a living and that is why he is rich because he knows what he's doing unlike Obama who had never worked in anything other than 4 years in a law firm, was a part-time lecturer and part-time community organizer and had no academics in economics, finance, business administration, etc...

    tax cuts for the rich deregulate everything will create a million jobs–the other 11 million will be cleaning up the mess payed for by the tax payers
