The conservative Republican businessman and former presidential candidate opines: "He understands that you can’t create jobs with a tax code that punishes business success. He understands that the key to balancing the budget and paying down debt is a growing economy. Democrats like to talk about 'revenue increases,' by which they mean higher tax rates. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with revenue increases, as long as they come as a result of a growing economic base. Mitt Romney understands this, and he also understands that you don’t 'stimulate' economic growth with government spending. Obama’s been trying to do that for four years and it hasn’t worked."
