Corporations need to stop taking tax payer welfare handouts.<quoted text>
You are the one making assumptions about me.My Dad was a bartender with five children.We all attended an inner city public schools.He was hardly a rich man,but he taught me at a young age on how to save and be responsible.I have been working since I have been 10 years old and bought all my own clothes with paper route money. To this day,I am still am working at age 65.I am a Vietnam era Veteran.I spent 6 years in the military and then got out and went to school four nights a week and worked six days a week during that time.Everything that I have today was earned the hard way.I never had anything given to me.I even bought my first car with money I saved from my paper route.You acuse me of making assumptions and then turn right around and make assumptions about me.People need to quit looking for handouts and start looking for ways to better themselves.It is not the governments job to take care of people from cradle to grave.They need to get off their dead asses and help themselves.

And gay people have the exact same marriage rights as everyone else... if they want to pretend to be straight.
You guys really think these BS non-arguments are fooling anybody?

BTW it matters very much what she makes.
Because poor people, and lower middle class people, don't make enough to invest in stocks-- and if they do, they don't get the choice pickings that someone with Romney's money get.
So Capital Gains taxes are something that will probably never affect them.
You're trying to score points on a technicality, while ignoring the larger issue.

Great post. And well said.
If there's one American archetype that I think is completely bogus, it's the "self-made man".
NO ONE is "self-made". Every successful person got help along the way, from mentors, parents, advisors, and even grunt laborers willing to pitch in and help.

Sure. He pays a lot of taxes because he makes a lot of money. And it is Newt who wants to lower Romney's taxes even more. Newt's tax plan cuts taxes only for the rich.

Well Mitt should apply for food stamps.
