Mitt Romney made what was dubbed by his campaign as a "major economic policy speech" in Iowa Friday. He pledged for 'big changes' but lacked specifics or anything that the American people haven't heard before in regards to his economic plan for the next four years.
Last night, we did the math Thursday showing President Obama's deficit cutting math didn't add up and Romney's plan is in the same boat - his economic plan doesn't add up.

Romney pledges 'big change' but offers few specifics
Mitt Romney renewed his bid for independent voters Friday, pledging in a formal speech to unite a fractious Washington and deliver "big change" to reset the country's course.
"This election is a choice," Romney told more than a thousand voters on a windy Iowa afternoon, saying Americans faced "a choice between the status quo – going forward with the same policies of the last four years – or instead, choosing real change, change that offers promise, promise that the future will be better than the past."
The speech, billed by aides as a major address on the economy, was largely a repeat of remarks Romney had given on the stump at rallies across Ohio a day earlier. The GOP presidential nominee did not outline new policy positions, instead using lofty rhetoric to make his final pitch to undecided voters.
