Romney said super-wealthy will pay their shares of taxes.

The following is Romney's answer from being interviewed by Fortune Magazine:

The Tax Policy Center says your revenue-neutral tax-cut scheme lowers the overall tax burden on the rich and raises it on the poor and middle class. Your advisor Eric Ferhnstrom calls their analysis a "joke." What's your response?

I indicated as I announced my tax plan that the key principles included the following. First, that high-income people would continue to pay the same share of the tax burden that they do today. And second, that there would be a reduction in taxes paid by middle-income taxpayers. Those are the key principles of my plan that the Tax Policy Center chose to ignore. Instead they made various assumptions about what they thought I would do which are not in fact accurate. They made an assumption that I would reduce the home mortgage-interest deduction. I will not do that for middle-income taxpayers, as I have already indicated. There's an old expression in the computer world: garbage in, garbage out. They made garbage assumptions and they reached a garbage conclusion. My tax policy will continue to have a very clear direction. We are not going reduce the share of taxes paid by high-income individuals, and we're certainly not going to increase the taxes paid by middle-income taxpayers.

Wow! That old lie shows up again! The truth is that criminal charges were drpped against these individuals by the Bush Justice Department because there was no evidence that anyone was intimidated. Holder got a civil injunction.
C. Adams later admitted that he had no personal knowlege of the case.
You're a goddamned liar and a complete idiot.

America catches up to fred. ObamaTax redistributes health care from seniors to 30 million illegal aliens. 700 billion!

The Kenyan squandered billions to prevent cuts to Medicare Advantage from kicking in before the election.

WASHINGTON POST: Romney’s right: Obamacare cuts Medicare by $716 billion. Here’s how.

First, where it comes from. On July 24, the Congressional Budget Office sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, detailing the budget impact of repealing the Affordable Care Act. If Congress overturned the law,“spending for Medicare would increase by an estimated $716 billion over that 2013–2022 period.”

As to how the Affordable Care Act actually gets to $716 billion in Medicare savings, that’s a bit more complicated. John McDonough did the best job explaining it in his 2011 book,“Inside National Health Reform.” There, he looked at all the various Medicare cuts Democrats made to pay for the Affordable Care Act.

The majority of the cuts, as you can see in this chart below, come from reductions in how much Medicare reimburses hospitals and private health insurance companies.

So now we add that Paul Ryan was so stupid as vote for two tax cuts while at war.
Thanks for pointing that out.
The recession officially started in 4th quarter of 2007. Please cite the legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created the recession.
(ps, you didn't show any numbers in your post.)
The economic collapse was caused by the Democrats' idiotic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program. The Democrats wanted no oversight, and to pursuade the Democrats to not do what they did throughout the Cold War, that is sabotage of the United States during a time of war, the Republicans nullified oversight of the Democrats idiocy and the Democrats supported the Iraq front in exchange. The result was the Democrats collapsed the economy.

Now that your party line bullshit has been debunked A-F**KING-GAIN, let's get back to the issue you continually run away from. This time, answer the post. I'll help you. Here's the post again:

So, after the dot-com bust coincided with the Arab jihad declaring war on the United States by slaughtering 3000 Americans here in the United States, how would you fund that war?
And, if you are aware of any actual facts, you will know that the deficit was dwindling under Bush. Bush handed the Democrats that took over Congress in January, 2007, a deficit of just 160 billion dollars.
How big of a deficit did the Democrats create after they took over all the purse strings of the government in January, 2007?
To answer this, you actually have to put numbers in your post.
Give us the deficit and debt for each year since January, 2007.

I don't get why you Repubs are so hung up on this $716 Billion Medicare cut over the next 10 years. Mitt/Ryan plan is to do AWAY with Medicare and give everyone a good luck voucher. How much of a cut is doing away with Medicare?
