I can explain it, because it is really complicated. Romney wants to decrease taxes for the richest guys ( it means his rich fellows from corporations ) and he needs naturally much money to support his holy nation in issrael( it menas issraelis ), to lead wars ( Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Russia ), to support financially his fellows chefs of thievish global banks and global corporations thatīs why his tax plan has two points. 1. the most important point - to decrease taxes for his own and his richets fellows and 2. point: to increase taxes for usual citizens poor, middle class and to liquidate social care-it will bring money to realize first point and his main programm.

This is coming from someone who lives in the biggest capitalist nation in Europe.

You're either a hypocrite or living on the dole in Germany. Shaddup!

Romney wants tax reform and he'll only raise taxes if he thinks it's necessary.

Here's an idea, instead of raising taxes, just cut all the duplication and waste out of the spending; make hew laws where the govmint can only spend what is collected and no more. Close all the tax loop-holes. Stop paying people to have more kids though tax rebates. Make a budget!!!!!! Start a serious payment plan to start paying off the debt. They can start with all the money that has been paid back to the bailouts. Slush funds are not allowed in the govmint.

Actually both Obama and Romney's plans raise taxes. Obamacare raises taxes on the middle class a lot, but people will all get help buying health insurance in exchange for those new taxes. On the other hand, Romney lowers taxes on corporations and on the rich, and then imposes federal income taxes on everyone else, "broadens the tax base" as they say on Fox. What the Repubs do is means test the entitlements, so they save a lot of money on social security and medicare payments and then tax seniors and lower wage workers the federal income tax to make up for the ten percent tax cut on the rich. One reason Ryan won't say what they are up to is because they end the mortgage tax deduction and other deductions that middle class families now get. They are not going to say that before the election.

I would rather that those who make $20-$50 million per year, like those people on Fox TV, pay the 40-50 percent tax rate than to tax families making $40-$50,000 per year more and more and end their current tax deductions. Who can afford it more - the guy making $50,000 with a family of 4, or the guy making $50 million per year??
