    I beleive he took the Govt. amnesty deal on his Swiss accounts in 2009 which would mean he DID reak the law but was given a pass on it because.....well because he is a RICH SOB.

    Romney also gave the impression that he wanted his already meager tax rates to be lowered even further, which was a real vote getter for his billionaire donors. The rest of the country not so much.
    how do we know that Obama is not a mass murderer or Hillary is not a serial child molestor

    innocent until proven guilty

    meager tax rates? LOL when the top 1% start paying less than ONE PERCENT Of the taxes than their rates are too low

    Shouldn't they pay according to their income? Or should we just charge everyone $10?

    The from each according to their ability (which is a joke-the middle class don't pay enough because they have too many votes) is the only grounds most on the left want.

    To claim the rich aren't paying their fair share is beyond dishonest. a fair share is everyone paying the same amount for the same government services. The rich tend to pay many dollars for one dollar of service, the poor pay almost nothing for often more services

    Nobody can give more than their ability. To pretend otherwise is simply fantasy.

    Your definition of fair share - everybody paying the same - is the opposite and a betrayal of positions you have taken on this very site in the past.

    most don't give as much as they can.

    if votes were based on taxes paid, the middle class would have to pay more

    they pay less than their share because they have more votes

    Re the poll numbers . . . the only thing they don't know is, of the people they polled, which of them are going to actually vote. Seems like lots of conservatives stayed home.

    Had dinner with some 20-somethings last week, and the reason they voted Obama? Mitt Romney pays less of a percentage of income tax than they do. Nice job, Dems. It worked.
    Just heard a report from Hart(sp), Texas where people didn't vote for Obama because he is a muslim and not born in America. Well done GOP.

    You do realize the US Constitution has strong language forbidding such a thing?
