Huntsman hits Romney as status quo candidate, in pocket of Wall Street

Huntsman's jab came the same day that he unveiled his new financial regulation plan. The plan requires banks of a certain size to pay a fee to cover possible government bailouts. The idea is to discourage banks from reaching the "too big to fail" level. Huntsmans's plan also proposes repealing the Dodd-Frank financial regulation law. 

At the same town hall on Monday, Huntsman turned Romney's many endorsements from sitting Republican legislators against him. He said that so many endorsements mean Romney would likely be a "status quo president."

"You should be wary of any candidate who carries the endorsements of every member of Congress, because it means they're going to be a status quo president," Huntsman said, according to CNN
