‘ED Show’ playbook: Tue., Oct. 2


The first presidential debate is tomorrow night in Denver and Mitt Romney is finally revealing a plan to pay for a $5 trillion tax cut.

“As an option, you could say everybody’s going to get up to a $17,000 deduction; and you could use your charitable deduction, your home mortgage deduction, or others - your healthcare deduction, and you can fill that bucket, if you will, that $17,000 bucket that way,” Romney told a Denver TV station last night.   

Tonight, Ed (who is live from Denver) breaks down Romney’s “bucket” plan with Robert Gibbs, Senior Campaign advisor for President Barack Obama.

Devastating new polls numbers show Mitt Romney’s secret video is crushing his campaign.  How aggressive does the president needs to be?  Alex Wagner, Host of msnbc’s NOW with Alex Wagner, and msnbc Political Analyst Richard Wolffe will join Ed for a preview of tomorrow night’s presidential debate.
