Jobs

Newt Gingrich: Newt Gingrich’s jobs plan focuses on tax and regulatory reforms, repealing the Affordable Care Act, and Wall Street reform law and a balanced budget to create jobs.

Mitt Romney: Mitt Romney has produced a 59-page plan that suggests tax, budgetary, trade, energy, regulatory and other reforms to create jobs.

Rick Santorum: Rick Santorum’s jobs plan includes restructuring tax rates, repealing the Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley regulatory reform laws and cutting government spending. Joyce Jones
