At the same time, what is Romney holding?
Tax Havens
Loopholes
Tax Cuts for the Rich
More cuts
Write-Offs
By the way, what do you call writing off his wife's horse to the tune of $77,000. I call that a definite entitlement.
So this is the choice. Cut off free school lunches for poor children or keep tax write-off's for horses.
Entitlements are ponzi schemes in which the government takes other people's money and gives it to irresponsible people who can't admit that their lot in life is their own fault.

Romney is simply trying to prevent the government from doing that with the money he and his wife earned.

As for free school lunches...if you can't feed your own children, you're a worthless parasite who should be ashamed.

actually entitlements are a form of vote buying,for example how many times have people heard the republicans want to take grandma's social security and medicare? well it's the democrats that now will take it and they'll take it with the obamacare.they will deny grandma,grandpa and the disabled medical care because any doctor in his/her right mind won't touch them.then when economic collapse comes there won't be any entitlements for anyone.then the government will take over everything...the banks,hospitals,etc....everyth ing.but the taxes from obamacare will be collected in some form or another."a government that gives everything will take everything",as the old saying goes.

Everything you have spouted off comes from Fox news, the druggie Limbaugh or Hannity or some right-wing operative. How do you expect anyone with any intelligence to respond or listen to your drivel.

Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck are all college drop-outs. Think that is where I want to get my information?

In your view, when Nancy Reagan said just say no to drugs, it worked? Ha!

So what's your brilliant solution? Let children starve and give the wealthy more and more tax breaks, subsidies and loopholes? Romney made his money off the backs of American workers who lost their jobs to China and driving businesses into the ground. I guess you think we should reward him for his great business plan. Vulture capitalism is yummy?

thank you rally for bringing up fox news,rush and the others.i am an independent,i usually don't watch or visit media websites.i was wondering what bugs a liberal so much that they always mention fox,limbaugh or hannity.because liberals always know more about them then i do.when i got to rush limbaugh's site i was really inspired.there is a video of by Bishop E.W. Jackson.i encourage everyone to see this video,it reminded me of the reasons i left the democrat party. it is titled Bishop E.W. Jackson's Message to Black Christains:Leave the Democrat Plantation.you can find the video on rush limbaugh's site or on youtube.

I really don't see why we even have the option of voting anymore. It doesn't matter who we vote in, they are only the face of congress. Nothing will change until they are taken out of office.

The Congress is Republican controlled. Everything Obama has tried to do including numerous jobs bills have been turned down by a republican congress. They have tried their best to make sure Obama isn't re-elected and America has suffered because of them.

I didn't specify which branch, I am saying all of congress has way more control over this country than the president so voting better congress in would make a bigger difference than a president. Every new president is just a puppet for them. They may go into office with good intentions but they will always be fighting congress.

All ways trying to put the blame on someone else,the so called president should be trying to bring the congress together and work with them.but no he wants it his way or no way,thats why he has bypassed the congress mainly the house on several occasions.he should do what every president that has done something does and thats work with congress.Don't for get he has the democratic controlled congress.

My solution is to make people responsible for themselves and their children. If you don't work, you don't eat...and you definitely don't smoke, drink or buy a new Iphone or Xbox. Don't steal my earnings because you're a worthless parasite and can't feed your own kids. Man-up and be responsible. By the way, the breaks, subsidies and loopholes aren't "giving" me anything...I earned IT!

Do you have any idea how venture capitalists work? We buy struggling companies, restructure them to be profitable and sell them for a profit. Driving them into the ground isn't profitable so we don't allow it to happen. In the restructuring, some jobs will be eliminated because they're not needed. Those jobs belong to the company, not the worker. Life's tough...get a helmet! Our business plan turns around failing businesses and keeps those needed workers employed. The alternative is to have the company fail completely and everyone become unemployed.

My plan sounds far more "brilliant" than yours.

Obama had a super-majority of both houses of Congress during most of his first two years. He passed two stimulus bills during that time, adding 2 trillion to the debt and the unemployment rate went up.

With a record like that, voters returned control of the House of Reps to the Republican party to stop more stupid spending on Democrat wish lists that do no good.

The republican redistribution of wealth is tax cuts for the wealthy but they don't call it redistribution but it moves the money in the opposite direction than the downward direction people think of when they say redistribution of wealth. Redistribution includes Romney's tax returns of less than 15% when many working people pay more than that in taxes every year. I know that I paid 18% for the past year including payroll taxes. That is REAL redistribution and that is why the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Racism is a great tool for the republicans and the wealthy. They use this kind of propaganda well and people buy into it. Now Romney is talking about getting rid of the mortgage interest deduction. That would hurt the housing industry even more. At the same time, he wants more tax cuts for the rich. Who needs more help, the rich or the middle class. Romney says give more help to the rich and take away from the middle class. The middle class is struggling, not the rich.
Let me see if I have this straight...

I earn money and become wealthy. I pay income taxes on that money at a 35% rate. I then put my money, which has already been taxed, to work for me by making investments resulting in capital gains. The government takes 20% of my gains from those investments in taxes. The President and Congress decide that lowering my capital gains tax rate to 15% would generate economic growth, like it has every time it's been tried, so they allow me a cut in the amount of taxes I send to the cesspool in Washington. As expected, economic growth results. Later, a different President wants to raise my rate back to where it initially was (20%)even though this will hurt the economy and reduce the receipts to the treasury like it has every time it's been tried. All because he and his followers are filled with envy and want "fairness".

Now, 65% of my earnings and 85% of my gains, after taxes, are mine to keep. Yet if I get to keep that amount, the Republicans are redistributing up...taking from the middle class???

Are you insane or has your envy just blinded you to your own stupidity?
