by Javier ManjarresTim Miller, spokesman for Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, has issued his response to Rod Smith and his Florida Democrat Party’s criticism of Huntsman’s so-called ‘radical’ approach to balancing the budget while he was Governor of Utah. Smith’s criticism of Huntsman comes from the head of a Party that has yet to offer any viable or coherent solution to balancing the federal budget, primarily because they know that any real cuts to entitlement programs, the main drivers of our debt, is a direct blow to their political influence.
Erick Jotkoff, Communications Director for the Florida Democrat Party, issued the following salvo:
” Huntsman supports the radical Republican plan that would balance the budget on the backs of Florida’s seniors and end Medicare as we know it.”
Which prompted the following Tim Miller rejoinder:
“The Florida Democratic Party is so out of touch with reality that they think Jon Huntsman’s call to balance the budget is ‘radical’. People in Utah didn’t think it was radical when Jon Huntsman balanced the budget, tripled the rainy day fund, cut taxes and led the nation in job creation. After three years in power, all the Obama Administration has to show for it is trillions added to the debt, sustained unemployment, and no plan to turn the economy around.” -Tim Miller, campaign spokesman for Jon Huntsman
