Romney Rejects Idea of Another Stimulus

Posted: Aug 05, 2012 12:00 PM

This is encouraging. The AP reports Mitt Romney thinks the Federal Reserve shouldn't employ another stimulus "to boost the still-sluggish economy":

The Republican presidential hopeful says he doesn't think another round of stimulus would help the economy, arguing that previous measures didn't work.

Romney tells CNN's "State of the Union" in an interview scheduled to air Sunday morning that business incentives are preferable to more government intervention. ...

Romney also doubled down on his vow to create 12 million new jobs during his first term, calling that goal realistic and achievable.

It's encouraging for conservatives to see that Romney's not tempted enough yet to go a big spending-George W. Bush route. I think this also presents a great opportunity to use an Obama line right back at the current president. Obama fondly said Romney is going to rehash old economic policies and concluded, "We tried that and it didn’t work."

Can't the same be said for the stimulus?
