Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate, toed the party line today in questioning the economic recovery package going through Congress.
He echoed House Republicans who say the plan includes too much unnecessary spending, doesn't include enough tax cuts, and has way too many projects that wouldn't happen in the next two years.
"We have a short-term economic boost that's needed, and this bill does not do that," Romney said on MSNBC from San Diego.
He urged members of Congress: "Do what's right for America, not what's right politically."
