    and yes, Romney's effective tax rate during his life is much higher than most "working peoples'"

    wow your hate for the working class is overwhelming in this post!

    Let's see any proposal by congressional Democrats or Obama for capital gains tax rate of 70-90%???

    Come back with some facts when you can find them.
    this is coming from someone who just claimed the rich benefit more from taxes than the poor? I was quoting your dear leader-are you denying he is correct? He admitted that the rich sacrifice by paying taxes, everyone else sacrifices when they get less government goodies

    Actually there was a surplus in 1969. Furthermore, federal receipts have increased virtually every single year since 1932. Your cause and effect are merely circumstantial.

    Yes, before supply side economics was undertaken in 1981. That is why I stipulated above, the last 30 years. Of course, but they increase more with higher taxes, which is why the 1990s are the only time in the last 30 years we have significantly reduced the deficit.

    your post is incredibly dishonest and what I say is the truth

    1) Romney does pay more income taxes than millions of people democrats and unionistas term as "working people

    2) Romney has worked harder and smarter than most of them

    3) and Romney's tax rate is higher than theirs-you have to be making 200K or more in earned income to have an effective federal tax rate of 15%

    why do liberals claim telling the truth is "hate"

    I thought you meant 30 years prior to 1992.

    I do not think you are accurate regarding this. I will do some research into this and post my findings.

    I didnt read that from your post, the fact you are putting "working people" in quotation marks is a piss take on your part. I also disagree that Romney has worked harder than working class people like construction guys, soldiers, fireman etc. He has worked smarter and had his fare share of luck as well but to say he has worked harder than most working class people is a joke!

    You are late to the game and not being native you might not understand what "working people" have come to mean in the USA. Its code for union workers. Union toadies and the politicians who cater to unions use that term as a code word to suggest that union members are "working people" when in reality non union people work as hard-often harder than union members in the same trades. Furthermore, wall street law firm associates, surgical residents and young MBAs at places like Proctor and Gamble put in hours that would kill many of those so called "working people".
