Romney Promises 11.5 Million Jobs: Could He Really Deliver?

(WASHINGTON) — President Obama Thursday night urged Congress to pass a plan that some analysts say will put 1.9 million Americans to work in the next year. But two days earlier, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced a plan that he says will create nearly 10 times as many jobs. Romney, who detailed his jobs agenda in a 161-page book, said in a Las Vegas speech unveiling the plan that if elected, he would push his plan to create 11.5 million jobs in his first term, dropping unemployment to less than 6 percent and boosting gross domestic product (GDP) growth to 4 percent annually.
