Bachmann slides ideas into 11-point economic plan
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has packaged many of the proposals she's been pressing in her campaign into an 11-point plan for putting the U.S. economy back on sound footing.
The blueprint Bachmann outlined Tuesday calls for tax accommodations that would give companies incentive to re-invest at home money that presently is earned abroad. She also would decrease government worker salaries, eliminate an inheritance tax and roll back a slate of federal regulations. That includes President Barack Obama's signature health law.
The Minnesota congresswoman has talked repeatedly about most of the ideas since entering the White House race in June.
Bachmann has been trying to fight off a campaign slump since winning the Iowa GOP straw poll two months ago.
