    Amazing isn't it, Romney pays over 3 million in taxes and 47% of income households aren't paying any Federal Income Taxes and the liberals claim that Romney is getting a bigger tax cut than those 47% of households. That is liberal logic and why they have no credibility.

    No **** Sherlock. It's kinda hard for, say, a single mom with three kids, and working three jobs, to contribute more money than, say, a multi-billionaire.
    And yet you accuse her of greed...
    Could someone please explain the logic in that?
    When you talk about the Republican candidates, you have to say "Mitt or Newt," else you'll have to say "Neuter Mitt."

On the flip side, the federal government is largley singularly responsible for the military spending as opposed to entitlements that can get significant state support, and the maintence of armed forces is unquestionably a constitutional purpose of the federal government where as most entitlements are far more questionable in that nature. So Spare me the pathetic partisan excuse that we should significantly destory one but leave the other mostly untouched save for mild reforms primarily aimed not at reducing the amount spent on them but simply finding new ways to raise more taxes for them.
    On what entitlement do we spend almost as much as the rest of the world combined?

    in what alien world is it fair that romney pay a lower tax rate than i do? NONE. in fact, it's bull****, and of course romney, and other like minded republicans, will continue to push the tax burden down to the middle class. john mccain is right about one thing: republicans need to focus on their bread and butter, the working class, because a rising tide doesn't lift all boats, not anymore.

    We could cut military spending by 2/3 and still would be spending more on military than any other country on the planet.

    What generates more revenue to the govt. a rich person like Romney paying 15% or over 3 million dollars or the 47% of income earning households or 54 million American households paying no Federal Income taxes and in some cases getting money back. Or how about the 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans, how much are they paying in FIT?

    Then compare that to raising taxes on those evil rich people and see how much money you will get? your class envy and jealousy is noted

    So you believe we could operate on a 250 billion dollar military budget? And what happens if you are wrong? But let's say you are right, 500 billion cut in military still has a budget deficit of 900 billion dollars. You have no concept of consequences for failure or making a mistake because in the liberal world mistakes are never made.
