Did America Dodge a Bullet?

Americans have voted. Mitt Romney will not be the 45th President of the United States.

Here's what might have been if he would have won:

Higher Taxes on the Middle Class

  • In order for Romney's tax plan to work, he would have had to raise taxes on the middle class.
  • By 2015, this tax burden could have increased by $86 billion - 23% more than the Department of Education's entire 2013 budget.

Slashed Medicare Benefits

  • Romney's plan could have bankrupted Part A Medicare by the end of his first term.
  • 47.1 million elderly and disabled people would have been uninsured, more than the populations of New York and Texas combined.

Less Disaster Relief

  • Romney wanted to cut FEMA funding by 40%.
  • If cut 40%, New York would have had to pay $30 million in additional funds, or nearly all of its transportation budget, to clean up Hurricane Sandy.
