Former radio host on Romney’s economic plan

Mitt Romney has been criticized for not being charismatic but former KVNU host Tom Grover says the Republican presidential candidate was gutsy when he unveiled his economic plan in an extemporaneous speech in Las Vegas Tuesday without the benefit of a teleprompter.On KVNU’s For the People program Tuesday, Grover said he heard the speech in person and was surprised to learn Romney’s plan has 59 points, all contained in a 150-page book.Grover says a major point was that America needs to lower the tax rate to keep major corporations from leaving the country.”Don’t kid yourselves. These companies aren’t moving to these countries. They’re still operating here,” Grover said. “They’re still using our infrastructure, taking advantage of our economic system. They’re just moving their headquarters to these countries and, in some cases, they will move to these countries and they will just open a two-room office and call it their international headquarters, which is really just a joke. “I guess you have two responses to that. One is to penalize them and the other is to just lower the tax rate.”Grover said everyone who came to hear Romney had been screened. He said Romney will likely use a lot from the speech in upcoming Republican presidential debates.
