Description

Mitt Romney on Monday plans to refocus his campaign on tackling the US budget deficit, even as a media report highlighted concerns among some Republicans that his campaign was stumbling six weeks before the presidential election. The Republican presidential nominee is expected to tell the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles that his deficit-reduction plan will cut $500bn a year in government spending by the end of his first term. According to his prepared remarks, the former Massachusetts governor hopes to achieve this partly by cutting the federal workforce by 10 per cent through attrition and eliminating all programmes that are not “absolutely essential”.
