Romney supporters are part of the left-wing liberal conspiracy. To make us believe we have a choice between a liberal and conservative candidate between Obama and Romney. However, those two represent the left of America. A government growing Muslim vs a government growing Mormon. They aim to make us conservatives believe that Romney is one of us, but he is not. Whoever wins between the two, conservative America loses.

Johnson believes in less government regulation----a conservative view on goverrnment. What would RINOs know about conservatism. The RINOs believe they have us conservatives fooled. But we are wising up to the conspiracy

In Mass., Romney raised taxes, fees

Hot on the heels of his eight-vote Iowa-caucus landslide, Willard Mitt Romney is crisscrossing New Hampshire before Tuesday's key primary. Romney is masquerading as a limited-government, free-market executive from next-door Massachusetts. From the Golden Gate to the Granite State, voters should greet Romney's impersonation with a quarry full of skepticism.

In fact, Romney increased taxes by $309 million, mainly on corporations. These tax hikes, described by Romney apologists as loophole closures, totaled $128 million in 2003,$95.5 in 2004, and $85 million in 2005. That final year, Romney proposed $170 million in higher business taxes, the Boston Globe reports. However, the Bay State's liberal, Democratic legislature balked and only approved an $85 million increase.

Tax rates on many corporations almost doubled because of legislation supported by Romney, Boston Science Corporation chairman Peter Nicholas explained in Jan. 6, 2008's Boston Herald. Also, from 5.3 to 9.8 percent, Romney raised the tax on subchapter S corporations owned by business trusts, an 85 percent hike. Romney went further than any other governor in trying to wring money out of corporations, the Council on State Taxation's Joseph Crosby complained.

Romney also created or increased fees by $432 million. He was not dragooned into this by greedy Democratic lawmakers; Romney himself proposed these items. In 2003 alone, Romney concocted or boosted 88 fees. Romney charged more for marriage licenses (from $6 to $12), gun registrations (from $25 to $75), a used-car sales tax ($10 million), gasoline deliveries ($60 million), real-estate transfers ($175 million), and more. Particularly obnoxious was Romney's $10 fee per Certificate of Blindness. Romney also billed blind people $15 each for discount-travel ID cards.

Attention pea brain!!! News for you, you ersatz conservative...Save your libelous lowlife breath…Forum patriots already know what’s fact about Romney and Massachusetts and can educate you on the subject. Furthermore, the mission is to end obama. Johnson, Paul have ZERO chance of accomplishing that mission and that’s why the vast majority of people who many wanted another candidate are now behind Romney. And furthermore, what I'm telling you about your bigoted little punk mind should be of paramount concern to you; Capice?

"Quite the contrary: Spending has increased at a yearly rate of only 1.4 percent during Obama’s tenure, even if you include some stimulus spending (in the 2009 fiscal year) that technically should be attributed to President George W. Bush. This is by far the smallest — I repeat, smallest — increase in spending of any recent president.(The Washington Post’s Fact Checker concluded the spending increase figure should have been 3.3 percent.)

In Bush’s first term, by contrast, federal spending increased at an annual rate of 7.3 percent; in his second term, the annual rise averaged 8.1 percent. Reagan comes next, in terms of profligacy, followed by George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and finally Obama, the thriftiest of them all."

You are not an American. You are anti-American.

Bush was losing 850,000 jobs A MONTH with a negative 9% GDP.

Obama ended the Bush recession in 6 months and has been adding jobs ever since. Even consumer confidence is up.

A vote for Mutt Romputz is a vote to destroy the recovery, the middle class, democracy and the USA.

Attention obama sux!!! Bush was not losing a damn thing. Take responsibility because fruitcakes just like you made democRats a congressional majority in 2006. That 2006 pile of treasonous crap included a b. h. obama. So the lord marshal b. h. obama has been around since 2006 in control and due to his years of unprecedented failures it's time for the marxist self serving democRat Party to go...

Barack Obama's 'Life of Julia' says Mitt Romney would replace Medicare with ‘nothing but a voucher’

Politi-Fact = Mostly False


Our ruling

The Obama campaign’s "Life of Julia" graphic says that under Romney, "Medicare could end as we know it, leaving Julia with nothing but a voucher to buy insurance, which means $6,350 extra per year for a similar plan."

But the bipartisan plan Romney supports includes traditional Medicare among seniors’ options for purchase on a Medicare exchange. It also requires other plans to offer benefits of at least the same value. Finally, it includes a more generous cap on spending growth than the original Ryan plan. If all plans rose in cost, hitting a proposed spending cap, the bipartisan plan says the government would turn to providers and other sources of savings.

The Obama campaign ties Romney to an outdated plan with less generous spending growth and no traditional Medicare option. Romney does support a voucher-like system, but the graphic ignores critical facts that would give a different impression about his plan. We rate the claim: Mostly False.

Obama Reneges on Health Care Transparency

By Chip Reid


President Obama wants the final negotiations on health care reform - a reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of the bill - put on a fast track, even if that means breaking an explicit campaign promise.

"The House and Senate plan to put together the final health care reform bill behind closed doors according to an agreement by top Democrats," House Speaker Nanci Pelosi said today at the White House.

The White House is on board with that, too, reports CBS News political correspondent Chip Reid. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stressed today that "the president wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible."

During the campaign, though, candidate Obama regularly promised something different - to broadcast all such negotiations on C-SPAN, putting the entire process of pounding out health care reform out in the open.(That promise applied to the now-completed processing of forging House and Senate bills, too.)

Back when Republicans controlled Congress and George W. Bush was in the White House, it was Democrats who angrily complained about secret backroom deals.

Now the roles are reversed. Obama has meant No Change. More Secret Deals.

"The negotiations are obviously being done in secret and the American people really just want to know what they are trying to hide," said Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga.
