I am confused and maybe I should not be using Romney's Tax Policy detailed plan as a guide: http://www.mittromney.com/sites/default/files/shared/TaxPoli...

I assumed that by stating "Make permanent, across-the-board 20 percent cut in marginal rates" it was referencing the Bush tax cuts.

If not, it doesn't really make sense.

Step 1: Make permanent marginal rate cuts.

Step 2: Change those permanent rates that I just made permanent in step 1 to take another 20%.

I admit it could be that I lack cognitive skills, but the only way I see it is that the 20% cuts= Bush tax cuts.
