    Three years in a row his Democratic legislature shot that idea down.

    He balanced the budget by raising fees and closing loopholes. He didn't raise taxes.
    That is a tax increase. Just ask the leader of the republican party grover norqhiust.

    Romney didn't raise taxes in MA. Three times he tried to lower them, and three times he was told "no".

    Romney didn't raise tax rates, but he did raise taxes.

    His tax rate cuts didn't pass because his budgets didn't pay for them

    If it makes you feel better saying Romney balanced the MA budget by raising taxes, and you are using his words about what the SCOTUS said the penalty for not buying ACA insurance was (a tax) to somehow try to make a point, that's okay. Not relevant, but okay.

    How is that not relevant? You are saying romney never raised taxes when he himself admitted to doing it.

    He was talking about the SCOTUS decision on the ACA. You didn't understand that from the clip?

    But if you want to talk about MA, you do know that Romney proposed a tax break for people who had insurance as opposed to a tax penalty for people who didn't have insurance, yes? That was shot down by the MA legislature.

    What you propose doesn't matter. It's what you do that matters. Romney raised taxes. There is no grey area. Just ask grover norqiust.

    Okay, please post some links that show exactly how much Romney raised in taxes. I'm not talking about Norquist.

    And be careful with that "what you propose doesn't matter" thing. It wrecks the narrative that your fellow Libs love to push about the mandate is the Republicans' idea because they proposed a failed law in 1993.

    Tell us exactly what taxes did Romney raise, personal state income taxes? NO. Use taxes, yes, so if you didn't use the service you didn't pay the fee. Seems like a rather simple concept to me, pay for what you use not penalize people for making money. Doubt the 4.6% unemployment rate impresses you either.
