    That doesn't change the fact that Obama supports it.

    "Certain provisions of the health reform statutes have been estimated to generate savings for the Medicare, Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program, as well as offsetting certain costs. If repealed, the CBO estimates that there would be an increase in deficits totaling near $455 billion—based on an original estimate of the net savings of these programs.

    Romney's Tax Plan Would Add $3T To Deficit Over A Decade

    "Last week, Mitt Romney proposed a new tax plan that would, among other things, reduce individual tax rates by 20 percent across the board and repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax. To get a rough sense of what those two tax cuts would cost, the Tax Policy Center crunched the numbers. The result: They would be really, really expensive.

    TPC found that repealing the AMT and cutting rates by 20 percent would increase the deficit by more than $3 trillion over the next 10 years, even after the 2001/2003/2010 tax cuts are extended."

    Right, all the viable candidates support it, so it will be up to Congress to get rid of it, where there is a majority of Democrats that voted against it. That's the party I'm voting for.

    I guess there are a few people out there like yourself that are one issue voters. Most are not.

    I am not a one issue voter by any stretch. I guess I should have put "another reason I will vote "none of the above". "

    Minor exceptions aside, most candidates on the docket are the same guy as the next.

    The only one that is truely different is Ron Paul, but his economic views are a disaster... different is not necessarily better... Obama has proven that. His rhetoric was the opposite of Bush and yet he pushed or continued many of the same failed or illegal policies.

    Freedom to be ruled by corporate tyrants? No thanks.
