The Washington Post has posted an interactive way for people to try to make Mitt Romney’s tax plan add up. Keep in mind that Mitt Romney has promised a 20% individual tax cut and a 30% corporate tax cut, while claiming that revenues will stay the same. He has also signed Grover Norquists Tax Pledge and stated that he wouldn’t accept a $1 raise in taxes even if it meant a $10 cut in spending.
Under that, criteria give it a try and see if you can get the numbers to add up:
