The answer is yes, the American economic recovery would be much stronger under a Romney administration, and there are three reasons: a focus on growth, a better strategy for growth and a more disciplined federal government.

Senior Fellow, Centre on Budget and Policy Priorities
The nascent recovery is finally gathering steam and the last thing we need is to waste trillions of dollars in trickle-down tax cuts that cannot be counted on to boost growth and jobs, but will raise both the deficit and after-tax income inequality.
