Rick Santorum Drops Out

April 10, 2012

Now that underdog Rick Santorum has dropped out of the race, there is no doubt that Mitt Romney will become the Republican Party’s nominee. Preparing for the general election, the White House has argued that the proposed “Buffet Rule” makes good economic sense, setting the stage for future debate.

Next week the Senate is expected to vote on the Buffet Rule. No matter the outcome in the Senate, the Republican-majority House will shoot any legislation looks like the Buffet Rule. President Obama’s reelection team will use the vote as a political reference point for criticizing Romney’s endorsement of Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget.

Since Republican primary season is practically over (despite Ron Paul’s inability to dropout), both candidates will be able to focus on issues important to voters, as opposed to arguing about religion and other social issues. Polls have shown that voters want the presidential election to focus on jobs and the economy. Both camps will be making their pitch to save the economy and lower unemployment.

Obama’s campaign has been arguing that Romney’s tax proposals are unfair for Americans and benefit the rich.  While the Romney campaign has focused on President Obama’s bloated budget and the growing federal deficit.
