Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney responded to criticism that his proposed tax plan would cause a three trillion dollar deficit in an interview on CNBC on Wednesday morning. Romney said that despite private financial firms scoring this plan, it really can't be determined yet because details would have to be worked out with Congress, except that it would "cut the top marginal rate across the board by 20%," and be paid for by limiting deductions and "additional growth."
"I think it's kind of interesting for the groups that try and score it because frankly it can't be scored," Romney said of his tax plan. "Because those kinds of details are going to have to be worked out with Congress, and we have a wide wide array of options."
