Romney. There is a commercial stating that Romney only paid 14% in taxes last year. Well, 14% of 2 million is $280,000. So, he may have paid a lower tax percentage, but he paid more in tax than most people around here MAKE in a year!
So!!!! What makes him any better then anyone else,since most everyone pays 30%.
I'd like to make (twenty million dollars) in one year,would be glad to pay six million dollars in income taxes but he took advanage of the loop-holes for the greedy a$$ rich bas!ards,that was his income in 2010,

AND!!! He said he paid at least 13 percent, not 14.

Most everyone pays NO taxes. I'll bet you get everything you paid in back in a refund check.

Anyone who would vote for the mistake known as obama a second time should be committed to a mental institution.

The man is a one man wrecking crew of the USA.

Face the fact, obama was a mistake.

Get over it and get rid of the mistake.

You're right about some paying no Income Taxes,but take a look when you fill up your gas tank and take notice of the federal tax for every gal of gas,around 20 cents for every gal goes to ferderal gov. and around 19 cents goes to the state,
So the botton line is everyone pays TAXES.

And!!! When you buy a $100 worth of groceries you pay $109.25.....
So stop crying and lying when you say most everyone pay no taxes.

Exactly! I propose that everyone that want's the 1 percent to lose the 'loop-holes' give up their Earned Income Credit. Oh, don't want to do that? Get a grip. Everyone hates to pay taxes. Whether you make 1 dollar, or 1 million. I don't hate on Romney for making money. I hate on those that want to take mine.:)

if his accountant didn't take every loophole and legal deduction he should loose his job.if you dont like what he paid in taxes dont be mad at him for being smart enough to save every dime he could.be mad at the people who write the rules.and obama and his supporters say the rich should pay a little more.what percent should they pay 20 40 60 maybe they could just give the government all there profit then obama could give back what he dosen't need.i don't know about you but i've never worked for anyone but rich guys because i want my check to be good on friday.and to all the people complaining about what local companies pay if your not happy get another job or move to another area see if the grass is greener over there.the reason local companies have stayed open in this obama economy is there manufacturing cost are lower than the competition.so if they raise there wages or cost much the orders go elsewhere.i don't know if romney is the answer but obama has proven in 4 years he is not.and since when is everyone entitled to free healthcare free housing free food.that they are entitled to the same as someone who was a little smarter and worked a little harder.if you're not happy with where you are in life then get off your ass and do something about it .don't sit there and cry about someone who had the backbone to make there life better.

I'm kinda hoping that with Paul Ryan as VP that Romney will be able to make a huge difference in the economy. The main thing that bothers me about Obama is the Obamacare. I barely make enough to support my family how it is and if that takes affect then I'm praying that I will still be able to feed my children cause having to pay another bill that being for healthcare I would be " in the hole" more than ever before. Very scary situation for me as a parent of 5. Lol!
Unless you're making over 100,000 per year with a family size of 6 or more you'll pay little to nothing where as at least you'll have access to healthcare. If you have no healthcare now you either pay out of your pocket which is off the charts expensive or you go to the emergency room with no follow up care and they sue you for the emergency room cost. Poor people recieve credits for being poor so Obama care may not cost you anything . You will most certainly pay for healthcare under Romney he has NO plans for the poor except your on your own.

Hey old man,His daddy got him started with the right people when he was governor of mi.back in the 60s,
It's simple, It's all in who you know and who you blow.
Guess you think it's just great that he sends most of his money out of the good ole USA to other countries banks,
Theres countries where all have Free Health Care,why not this one,

I'm fine with where i am in life,sounds like you're not,but i do understand........

The socialistic healthcare in Germany is okay. The people there get free healthcare, and it is paid for by the people's taxes. Too bad their taxes are way over 50 percent. I believe I read somewhere the tax rate was in the 70's! Nothing is free in this world.

i am no expert on health care but dont poor people already get tenncare or medicare and if your that poor what can the hospital take from you.and if you can afford to pay why shouldn't you pay your hospital bill.nothing is free someone is paying.and i believe when obama care kicks in so hospitals and doctors can bill every thing to insurance cost will go through the roof.and the ones who are still having to pay for insurance will pay a lotttt more.

Shove those two idiots in there,(Rommey,Ryan)let Rommey pay 13% income tax while the middle class pay 30%,

-The middle class doesn't pay 30%. They pay 10-15% in income taxes. If you are middle class and paying in the 30% range you are an idiot or your tax preparer is incompetent.

-The 13% rate for part of Romney's taxes is because investments are taxed lower than income. And even at 13% he is paying millions more than most Americans.

We need a repeat of Bush and Cheney,they set this country back 25 years,
Started 2 wars and innocent people still getting killed in their own country,and all our troops that lost their lives in Iraq while Bush and Cheney
made millions in kick-backs under the table from Haliburon.

-The unemployment rate for the vast majority of the Bush administration was 5%. Really tough huh. And the two wars. I guess we should have cried to the UN on 9/11 and issued arrest warrants, held hands and wailed and done nothing right?

Also Bushy said the oil from Iraq would pay for the war,but not one copper penny was ever payed by anyone except the taxpayers in the good ole USA,
We even spent millions rebuilding their country.

-Yeah we have been known to be gracious victors. Ask Europe and Japan.

Same thing with his Daddy George 41,he invaded Kuwait telling the americn people the Kuwaities would pay for all that war,
How much did Kuwait pay ? Not one damn penny.

-Actually Kuwait and a bunch of other countries contributed substantially to paying for the costs of the war.

Chaney's salary from Haliburton ending just before he took over as VP was 35 and a half million dollars,but he wasn't satisfied with that,he and bush gave all those contracts to Haliburton so they could make millions more,

-Seriously, Cheney's shouldn't have taken a salary? Please. Get over it already. As for the contracts, if they placed bids and could carry out the requirements of the contracts then what is your problem? It wouldn't have mattered the name of the company that got the contracts you would still have complained because they are for profit business.

And Rommey is just like them,maybe even worse if possible,
He has no idea of how the lower and middle class live and he could care less.

-The current wonderful obamacare was passed with the rock solid promise health care costs would go down---they went up.

Obama took over a Hornets Nest and for the chances the repubs haven't gave him, he has done a really good job to get the things done that he has....

-He made things worse, far worse.

Oh" I know Rommey will carry tn. and ky. that's where most of the idiot's live,
But to be perfectly honest i'm an idiot also cause i live here to but i do know my a$$ from a hole in the ground.

-So if we vote Romney we are idiots. I am so glad you think so highly of your neighbors and so much for the right to disagree.

for the 1st two years obama was in office he and the dems had control of the house and senate and were able to pass any bill they wanted.was anything done about the fat cat oil companies or to make those greedy old rich people pay a little more.he doesn't want oil prices to go down he wants them to go higher to force you to buy electric cars.and the only reason he is attacking rich people now is class warfare to try and gain a few votes.if relected do you really think he will change the tax rate.if so it will only be on those industries that didn't support him.because his major supporters and handlers are also fat cat greedy rich people.things never change much for the fat cats because they have access and power they also never change much for the poor because the politicians pander to them promising whatever it takes to get there vote then blaming it on the other side when they don't deliver.but for the rest of us it does matter go back and look at your grocery bill your fuel bill your electric bill what you pay for a new pair of jeans or a pair of shoes four years ago and tell me you are better off today.
