"On his 2010 tax return, Romney disclosed that his wife Ann's trust held $3 million in a Swiss bank account at UBS, which had just been busted by the IRS for abetting criminal tax evasion by U.S. citizens. As part of a $780 million settlement, UBS was forced to turn over the names of thousands of its long-secret clients, who were then offered a partial amnesty: disclose their hidden assets, pay penalties and avoid prosecution. Romney – who had omitted the Swiss account on previous financial disclosures – suddenly came clean. Did he reveal his secret account to avoid prosecution for tax evasion? "He's not quite denied that," says Daniel Shaviro, a professor of tax law at NYU. The record of paying an IRS penalty on the Swiss account could explain why Romney has been so determined to keep his 2009 tax return under wraps.

We've been through this several times.
And I, for one, do not take kindly to weasels like yourself who continue to twist the truth even though you've been given the facts.
So once more:
In the Senate,
Republicans Ayes 48, Nays 1
Democrats Ayes 28, Nays 21
And in the House
Republicans Ayes 215, Nays 6
Democrats Ayes 82, Nays 126
Hence, the number of GOP Aye votes outnumbered Democrat votes by a total of 263 - 110.
And please, no more 1998 Clinton era quotes. Those opinions were reversed a year later when the weapon inspectors re-evaluated Iraq's capability.
The UN DID NOT BELIEVE Iraq possessed serious nuclear or bio-weapons programs in 1999, and this opinion did not change by 2003. I suggest you read Hans Blix' statements on this.
As a result of Bush and Cheney's orchestrated march to war, which the so-called "liberal" press accepted without question, Democrats were pressured into supporting the Administration's agenda.
You should remember that the so-called "intel" came from the Pentagon's Office of Strategic Plans, run by Cheney, where he vetted the CIA reports most supportive for war.
As the Iraq conflict dragged on and no WMDs were found, the Democrats naturally began to realize they'd been conned.
Ink this to your forehead so you don't forget.
So the UN giving Saddam 15 different opportunities to prove he no longer had a WMD program and threatening "serious consequences" if he thumbed his nose up at them one more time was because they were convinced he posed no threat.

Several UN inspectors stated they were convinced Saddam would rebuild his WMD program as soon as the world wasn't watching anymore.

The majority of Democrats in the Senate and more than half of House Democrats were on board.

0 Republicans were on board for Obamacare.

JFK was better than anything your party produced.
He resolved the Cuban Missile Crisis peacefully which was a very difficult moment.
Under his administration, the Peace Corps was established and NASA's Apollo project.
The Nuclear Test Ban treaty was signed. Up until then, the U.S. and Soviet Union were radiating the environment with nuclear weapons trials.
And he would have gotten us out of Vietnam.
Perhaps the greatest attribute of John Kennedy is that he embraced FDR's Good Neighbor policy and the belief that the sovereignty of nations was paramount. As opposed to Republicans who believed overthrowing governments via the CIA was a legitimate prerogative.
And please don't bring up the Bay of Pigs. The CIA brazenly lied JFK into it. Consequently, he never trusted them again.
You are the image of a fish hanging at the dock from the hook, line and sinker. The proud, laughing fisherman standing next to you could be the Magic Negro, Bubba Clinton, LBJ or even the Camelot Creep himself, JFK.

Everything you just posted above is laughable but, inside of a JHS classroom, I suppose it's pretty serious stuff, huh?

JFK would be a moderate conservative today. Your party was hijacked by progressive liberalism. Not the same party anymore.

The lapdog media did a wonderful job of allowing Bush and Cheney's WMD lies to go unchallenged.

And they've done an equally fine job in upholding the Warren Commmission's "lone nutter" verdict for fifty years.

Just look at the Zapruder film. The backward reaction of JFK's body to the fatal shot makes it obvious he was shot from in front, not the rear.

1166 losers for every winner under ObamaKKKare...

In North Dakota, only 30 people have so far signed up for Obamacare. Meanwhile, 35,000 people have already or will be losing their existing health insurance plans in that state alone. WDAY reports:

"New information tonight, on the number of North Dakotans signing up for health insurance, under the state's federally-run marketplace," says the local reporter. "The insurance commission says just 30-people have signed up so far."

"Three insurance companies are doing business in the marketplace: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medica, and Sanford. Those 3 companies say more than 35,000 people are, or will be, losing their existing health insurance, because of Obamacare."

Depends on what you consider "a few extra bucks". Remember, the IRS has been known to go after kids lemonade stands. The law is the law.

New Study:‘Geoengineering to Cause Drought Worldwide’

A new study finds that geoengineering does exactly the opposite of what it’s supposed to do. Meanwhile, governments continue the cover-up of chemtrail applications worldwide.

Sorry to disappoint. However, a senior citizen making little more than $70 a week,$15 to $20 a day, two or three days a week, is not enough to report to the IRS.

The paperwork and man power by the IRS would cost more.

The IRS sends millions of dollars in tax refunds to bogus people in foreign countries.

Typical they'd go after a child's lemonade stand.

Can't wait for them to oversee Obamacare.

here's the problem though...suppose Galt pays some guy a few bucks to do some yard work or some teenager a few bucks to babysit...do you seriously expect Galt to report this to the IRS and do all the paperwork???....

never happen...

on the other hand, businesses that pay some employees under the table are different...

IRS agents should be horsewhipped for going after kids lemonade stands...

Oh please...
All the corporate polluters, Wall Street manipulators, big banks and wealthy elite like the Koch Bros. are on your side. You're the party of "Greed is Good".
Unlike the GOP, Democrats have been good for the needy.
So live with it.
You are disillusioned. The fat cats like to get real cozy with whoever is in power. Presently, it's Obama.

The extremely small number in the 1%'ers - even if greed sometimes accompanies their success - is still the better alternative compared to power AND greed by the elite few in the inner circle of big government micromanaging our lives.

Senior citizens don't have to file tax returns when receiving Social Security.

Filing a tax return on small amounts of income would cost taxpayers more in paperwork and man power by the IRS.

And they have their hands full already sending millions of dollars to bogus people in foreign countries and going after little kids' lemonade stands.
