Mitt Romney Would Like To See You Try Scoring His Tax Plan. Just Try It.

Fresh off his Super Tuesday meh, Mitt Romney went on CNBC and made a strange admission that his tax plan is not a real plan, per se

“What I put out in my plan was a series of principles that allow our economy to grow and at the same time maintain a neutral budget impact,” Romney said on CNBC. "So I haven’t laid out all of the details about how we’re going to deal with each deduction, so I think it’s kind of interesting for the groups to try and score it, because frankly it can’t be scored, because those kinds of details will have to be worked out with Congress, and we have a wide array of options.”
Okay, so to review: it's "a series of principles" not a "plan" because, really, there is no plan. Got it.
