Mitt Romney wants Congress to wait on cuts

WASHINGTON - Mitt Romney says that if he is elected Congress should wait until he takes office to block automatic spending cuts and to keep tax cuts from expiring.

In an interview with Time magazine Wednesday, the Republican presidential candidate said he wants Congress to deal with major issues to keep the nation from going over a “fiscal cliff’’ after the January swearing-in. Romney said he wants permanent legislation to deal with those problems instead of a temporary effort.
