Romney Camp Says He Will Cut Funding For Some Government Agencies

Specifics still left wanting


TAMPA, Fla. — Expect a Mitt Romney administration to take a serious look at cutting agencies or cabinet departments within the federal government, his chief policy aide told The Daily Caller on Monday, but don't expect the Republican presidential nominee to get specific before election day on exactly what offices might get the ax.

In a brief interview after an event hosted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at the Republican National Committee, Romney's policy director Lahnee Chen explained the reason for this is that the Republican presidential candidate doesn't want to "prejudge things before you get in there."
