the private sector can adapt to a changing economy much more readily than the government. competition and the possibility of making a profit from improvements creates incentives that the government cannot provide. you people talk about the "greed" of the 1%. yet those "greedy" people provide jobs and move the economy forward. meanwhile the government wants you to accept the gruel they offer you...
If the one percent provide jobs when given a tax incentive, where thefuck are these jobs? Your trickle-down bullshit doesn't work, never has, never will.

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich Money release his tax returns?

Is it because it will reveal he paid no taxes? Possibly or possibly not, but it’s a little more devious than that.

We may find out that during the recession when he was given the Bush era tax cuts to reinvest in the economy and grow it, he instead shipped those savings into offshore accounts while the economy shrank and the country suffered.

The purpose? Maybe to set up trust funds for his children and grandchildren and earn interest. To guarantee his clan future wealth. Definitely a smart thing to do.

BUT it hardly supports the purpose of the Bush tax cuts which were given to encourage the 1% so-called “job creators” to go out and reinvest their savings into the American people so that the wealth could “trickle down”.

What really ended up happening? The wealth remained trapped in the 1% and shipped overseas to guarantee the survival of their future generations, while the rest of us hard working American middle class were forced to suffer during the recession.

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich Money release his tax returns? It would reveal why he fights hard for the 1%.

Oh, they have a plan?
When asked about the plan, neither one can explain what it is.
When Ryan was asked about his plan, he mumbled something about not having yet run the numbers.
In short, neither one has a clue.
Romney says he agrees with some part of the Ryan Budget but doesn't know which parts yet. ie when he is not flip flopping he is ducking the question.

Maybe it's because he doesnt have to show any more than two years of tax returns. This is all the left has??? Constant whining about stupid shit??? Maybe they need to get back to hope and change. Oh wait..... That didn't work out did it??? Obama has nothing to run on.

He has only shown last years tax return. He does not want to show before that because there is too much stuff in there that he can be attecked with. Preppy Ann says so.

When will Mitt Romney shine the light of day on the dirty, dark secrets in his tax returns? What is he afraid to let the American people see?

The reason Romney does not want to release his
tax information may be because he doesn't want the
Mormon Church hierarchy to find out that he
hasn't been exactly tithing. Maybe only fifthing,
or less. The Grand Pooh Bah in Salt Lake City might
not like that.

No. No more tax returns for you. Americans care more about the job situaton, and high unemployent, gas prices, and food prices then Romney' tax returns. Romney is talking about solutions to our problems, Obama is talking about fairy dust. See the difference?

In the end Obama will trade the Obama tax cuts,(Bush isn't there any more) for raising the debt level.
He'll try, but since Romney is going to win, it's a non-starter.

Mormon Rich Money and Paul Ryan's "solution" is MORE tax cuts for the 1%. So let's see what the 1% has done with their tax savings for the past 12 years:

Keep whining about them, PLEASE keep whining about them, the only ones paying any attention is the lowest common denominator of the democrat base. No one else gives a hoot. But, please, keep whining about it, I proves our point that you are One Note Charlies and makes you look pretty stupid to boot. LOL! Thanks for participating in the REPUBLICAN landslide just in time for my B-Day!

I would be happy to explain, but you clearly are not intelligent enough to grasp the concept. Keep drinkin' the Koolade, it will help when y'all go down in defeat in November.

Just because you're too damn stupid to take care of yourself doesn't mean the rest of us are.

We are quite capable of making decisions for ourselves and don't need liberal elitists in government making them for us.

President's plans are meaningless, unless they can get a member of Congress to introduce legislation to carry out that plan. We can look at the legislaton proposed, and passed by the party of Romney and Obama for REAL plans. Based on that Obama's democrats have substance, but so do Romney's republicans. The predidential campaigns are bullshit, talking points with no substance. Legislation has the detail to show what they REALLY want to do.
Most of you will vote on your feelings, not what the candidates want to do ...
Comments here are mostly bullshit, not bullshit has more substance!

He has already released more than what the law requires.

We don't give a shit how much taxes Romney paid. We are concerned with our disastrous economy and jobs. You whiners can keep crying about tax returns while the rest of us vote Obama and the liberal Democrats out of office.

Most rich people pay more taxes in a year then the poor, and unfortunate pay in five, and it has nothing to do with whether they paid or not, but that the pitiful don't think they pay enough. Well they do, way more then the rest of us, and the Government just wastes it on freebies for the lazy people. They use tax money to buy votes. We are tired of the waste, and abuse.

I'll keep it simple for you, you foolish feline. Mitt Romney is a crook. He is the last person I would want dealing with the problems you cite. And if you think Romney is talking about solutions, he must be broadcasting through your teeth.
