    Are you telling me that you think Romney pays a significant portion of his income in regressive taxes? Or do you understand why what you're saying is irrelevant?

    What do you mean "try to pretend". I'm posting the actual data. You just want to ignore half the data because it doesn't support the lie you constantly spout.

    what I am saying is that Romney pays too much taxes. I oppose taxes on income

    You were the one caught lying on this thread-shall we revisit your claim that Romney was talking about all his taxes in that article when it Clearly said INCOME TAX

    I know. You would rather only have taxes that hit the poorest people the hardest. You don't have moral values that tell you that is wrong.

    LOL. Answer the question. Do you think Romney pays say even 1% of his income in non-income taxes? Of course not. So you understand why that isn't relevant don't you? But there you are playing dumb anyways. What a shocker.

    people should pay for what they use demanding others pay for what you want is the real immorality.

    I have no idea what Romney pays in non income taxes. I don't know how much stuff he buys or what the property taxes he pays. But I know one thing-he pays more taxes in a week than you pay in a year and guess what-he sure doesn't get some knighthood or special privileges for all that tax money

    Junk food is not taxable in Ohio as far as I can tell:

    Food for human consumption off the premises where sold (food does not include alcoholic beverages, dietary supplements, soft drinks, or tobacco).

    I will keep that in mind in 4 years if Robert Portman is running for president as the late David Broder believed he would

    yeah its a constant source of speculation one part of the rich bashers use to justify higher taxes.

    you see there are two basic schools

    You have the FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR ABILITY CROWD (ie tax the rich more because they have more)

    and you have the far less honest crowd who try to justify the rich paying tons more income and death taxes than everyone else based on the MYTH and the BS that the Rich actually use more

    the problem with that nonsense is that for your system to work you have to claim that ONE MITT ROMNEY uses more government services than the thousands upon thousands of people who pay less federal income taxes combined than Mitt does by himself
