    Lpast didn't pay 13% Federal Income Tax on his income. He doesn't know how to figure out his effective tax rate. Most people don't.

    That's because taxes are so difficult to figure out. You know what's simple? A flat tax.

    The problem is him and Ryan want to give HIM another huge tax cut and raise costs for everyone else on other things...or cut from them

    Not so much. I pay more than 13.....so should he. Romney has no ****ing business asking for the tax returns of his potential running mates if he won't provide his to us.

    What kind of a leader is ignored by his highest advisors? Is the assertion that his staff ignores him supposed to be an endorsement of his leadership style?
    Are you saying that you have to lie and twist what I said instead of taking personal responsibilty to find out the truth? Because I mean exactly what I said, "Obama never said that nor did he promise it" and thats a fact.

    What the President said and what all of the president's men say are the same thing. The president is a big boy and he can say that the promise made was not an accurate one or he can leave it out there. Silence indicates consent is a revered legal doctrine and in this case, it applies.

    another guy who is a hard core obama supporter who would never vote for anyone who does not advocate tax increases on the rich.

    Your arguments are patently ridiculous

    you don't pay more on your investment income

    you don't pay more on your earned income than Mitt does

    You don't pay more property taxes than he does

    and your family doesn't pay death taxes


    so stop lying

    you are trying to argue that all of your taxes-many of which are not "progressive" take more of your income than what Romney's capital gains tax take of his capital gains

    why should he pay more when its different kinds of taxes

    Mitt Romney stated that he paid 13 percent in fed taxes. I paid more than 13 percent. I do not lie. Willard (see what I did there?) Clearly has something he doesn't want the voting public to see.
