    Apparently Romney forgot that this 47% figure he was parroting includes retired seniors and deployed combat troops. Hell, there are millionaires who pay no income taxes. (because they make their living on capital gains)
    He was referring to the 47% of wage earners who dont pay income taxes. This does not include retired seniors or deployed combat troops, as if they have taxable income, then they are paying taxes. Millionaires who make their living on capital gains also pay income taxes, as capital gains is income.

    Thank you for your concession.

    The same left wing nonsense, repeated. Don't worry, some day you will become educated and learn to do something else.

    LOL all you have are insults, a true sign of someone who has lost. Your concession that you cannot refute what I said in post 76 is noted.

Just the idea of that is pure nonsense. If he would have said that that group favors Obama, then he might have a point, but that Obama starts out with all of those people in his back pocket? That's just retarded. And he said that there is nothing he could do to change their minds.

    It was one of the dumbest things ever said by a candidate. He's assuming that if you don't pay income taxes your dependent on the government, even though you still pay payroll taxes, gas taxes, property taxes, sales tax etc. for local governments and the federal government. Along with that, he's ignoring that there are chunks in that 47% that are retired people no longer working for a living that don't have to pay income taxes (who I'm sure didn't all vote for Obama), military members receiving non-taxable combat pay etc.

    True or false? Much of Romney's statement relies on assumptions about one demographic: The 47 percent of Americans who he says "pay no income tax." So is it true that 47 percent of Americans don't pay income tax? Essentially, yes, according to the the Tax Policy Center, which provides data showing that in 2011, 46.4 percent of American households paid no federal income tax.
    Fact-checking Romney's "47 percent" comment - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    And thats just people who file. Half of americans dont file taxes. Also, the dumbest statement made by a candidate probably goes to John Edwards

    EDWARDS: When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.

    I never said that the 47% didn't pay income taxes, I said that the 47% isn't going to vote for Obama in some large group. I gave the fact that retired people, military members recieving combat pay are in this group as examples that this group isn't just moochers trying to gt a free ride like Romney believes.
