Details, Mr. Romney

In the recent presidential debate, Mitt Romney, in referring to eliminating spending programs, said: “I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”

The question is: How is he going to determine which programs rely upon money borrowed from China in order to be funded?

For all we know, perhaps the entire military budget relies on said money (and everything else is funded by the U.S. taxpayers), and we know he’s not going to eliminate that.

Will he “determine” that any programs he disagrees with are the ones which are funded by borrowing money from China and, therefore, are the ones he would eliminate?

The devil is in the details, and Romney refuses to disclose any details.

He seems to have decided that the American people are supposed to be kept in the dark.
