Energy independence a tax loophole under Romney?

Tara Wall, a Romney campaign adviser, became so wrapped up in her own circular talking during an interview on MSNBC she said energy independence was related to the specifics of the candidate’s plan to close tax loopholes.

What are the specifics of this campaign? Good luck on finding an interview that nails them down.

Asked For Specific Tax Loopholes Romney Will Close, Adviser Says ‘Energy Independence’

via thinkprogress.org by Travis Waldron

“When asked by host Chris Jansing which specific loopholes Romney would close, Wall demurred, instead choosing to talk about “pro-growth policies,” “energy independence,” and Obamacare, none of which are tax loopholes

Neither Romney nor his advisers want to answer the question about loopholes because they understand the math: even if politics were such that closing every loophole that targets the wealthy was a possibility, it wouldn’t offset the trillions of dollars in lost revenue that Romney’s plan would cause. That means, as a recent Tax Policy Center analysis made plain, that Romney would have to abandon one of his core campaign promises by either raising taxes on the middle class or blowing a huge hole in the federal budget.”
