As a Bishop Rmoney supporter, I used to just hate blacks. Then I started hating women, hispanics, browns, yellows, reds, jews, muslims, mainstream christians, gays, vets, old, poor, middle class, and handicapped people.

Now, to be honest, I only like Mormons high priests and rich people.

I only like that 1% of Americans. The REST are MOOCHES.

Funny how the progressives support the biggest health insurance scam in the country - AARP. AARP was the first on board to cut the $715Billion from Medicare. Why you ask, THEY SELL SUPPLEMENTAL HEALTH INSURANCE. The less Medicare pays the higher their profits go. Do a little research, AARP started as, and still is, an insurance company. You know those evil health insurance companies we all hate. Their "non-profit" side scams seniors into trusting them, their "mega-profit" side cleans up. Unethical, but very, very profitable.
Like that golden government welfare cow Medicare Advantage?

He took it from the insurance industry and hospital reimbursements. You're a typical frightwing Alzheimers patient. And if he really did what you say, you should be jumping for joy. Ryan wants to get rid of the whole program.

By Romney’s Own Standard, His Tax Returns Would Disqualify Him From The Presidency

By Aviva Shen on Sep 21, 2012 at 2:10 pm

If Romney had taken all of the deductions available to him under the tax code, he would have paid closer to a 9 percent tax rate in 2011. In attempting to match up his tax rate with his prior statement, Romney is paying more in taxes — and by his very own standard — disqualifying himself from the presidency. It’s worth noting that under Romney’s tax plan, he would cut his own rates even further, and would have paid little to no taxes under Paul Ryan’s 2010 budget, which would have eliminated the capital gains tax.

The false stories about McCain were spread by Karl Rove.

Republican.

Karl Rove who had his people call a "survey" of other Republicans, asking if they knew that he (McCain) had fathered an illegitimate child with a black woman.

In South Carolina.

Of course Aviva Shen will say that. She's a socialist spin master for Salon and other far left loony tune sites.

Romney pays his taxes, Nobama has blown half a billion alone on Solyndra, and billions more on other failed projects.

Take your pick-----one who pays and gives extra, or nobama who blows tax dollars like a fart in the wind.

You'll need to do better with that.

Yeah, but to be fair, you are going by what (and this is the important part) he ACTUALLY said.

I find it annoying- that by now, you don't know better than to allow Mitt to flip than flop then flip again.

Like abortion issue (well.. flip/flop/flip/flop... flip).

Expecting to go by what he ACTUALLY said is really nitpicking and reserved for Democrats.

actually.
they arent taxed "again"

only the "gains" are taxed

its a good system

otherwise they can "invest" elsewhere

which is what will happen if we raise taxes...

the problem isnt not enough taxes

its too much spending along with government stealing money to give to the mooches

its unconstitutional and has destroyed our economy

we need to go back to the oiginal way our government was allowed to tax

as desribed in the constituton
