Cutting the rates but not the share they end up paying is code for tax cuts for the rich and tax hikes for the middle class and it's a lie.
I don't quite understand how anyone can consider that an acceptable position.
when did I personally attack him by calling him an idiot
Is this a serious question? :-P
furthermore how did Obama raise taxes again? certainly not on the middle class which if you were paying attention 4 years ago he promised not to raise taxes on the middle class. which checks out
Obamacare raises taxes on millions of Americans who are in the middle class, so he broke that promise along with many others (cutting the deficit in half, closing Gitmo, ending military tribunals, unemployment never going over 8 percent, and the list goes on and on and on).
Oh, of course Statler would be a staunch partisan evangelical.
I see you are not any more well informed today as you were weeks ago, I am not an evangelical .
His position is that he'll cut the rates, but to make it revenue neutral he'll also get rid of deductions. Which as a public accountant I find hilarious because rich people don't get those deductions anyway. Those deductions get phased out for people in the high brackets. So basically he's saying that he'll cut the tax rates for the rich, and the middle class won't get deductions (middle class tax hike). That would be bad enough, but to make it even worse, there is no way that taking away deductions would even come close to offsetting the rate cuts he wants to put in place.
That’s just factually incorrect; the wealthy are able to take advantage of numerous tax loopholes that will be closed by Romney. How’s Obama tax plan working out for you? :-P
Perseverance of the Saints
I don't know how anyone could vote for Obama after witnessing the beat down Romney gave to him. It was like a seasoned Professor educating a freshman college student (Obama) on the basic fundamentals of business and economics. Without a teleprompter Obama is totally lost and clueless.
