What IF....Mitt Romney is caught in this videeo, accusing 47% of
Americans not paying income taxe as being "victims".And the
highest ranking U.S. Senator who has accused him of not paying any income tax
for the last 10 years, And Mitt Romney has defiantly refused to follow in
his own Father's footprints and disclose his tax information, because
it turns out that Senator Reid was telling the truth? I can not
think of a more ugly and un-happy ending.
Just when you thought it couldn't get worse...Mitt Romney gets caught
accusing 47% of America as being "victims" because they didn't pay
income tax.The ONLY thing worse than this I suppose, would be that after
defiantly refusing to follow his own Father’s footsteps and disclosing his
own tax forms for months, Would be for Americans to find out Senator Reid
was right all along, and that Mitt Romney has paid NO income tax for the last 10
years.I can’t imagine a worse scenario for Republicans to be in 7
weeks before the election.
So where does the entitlement of something for nothing which so many Americans
have, come from if not from the government?
Much ado about nothing...47% don't pay income taxes. Reducing
government will get rid of or reduce some programs benefitting people who are
recieving some kind of government assistance.Let me illustrate how that
may not be a bad thing...35 years ago. I lost my leg to a drunk driver. My
artificial leg at that time cost $500.00. It was a good size expense for me, but
I could manage it. Then government stepped in with their programs to
"help" handicapped people and immediately the cost of the leg shot up to
over $2000.00. I could no longer afford to get the leg on my own and was forced
to get government assistance on your, the taxpayer's dime.Today a leg
cost's over 20,000.00. The government and taxpayer is being taken to the
cleaners. And you wonder why taxes have to keep going up so much? I don't
believe this was an exception to the rule. I think there are other more
efficient ways to help the needy than through the government dole. One thought,
rather than paying for handicap services directly, support non-profit
organizations that do this same thing.
@packless then 9% of the population receives any kind of "entitlements
and less then 4% rely on it as their sole source of income. If you are talking
about why some people do not have to pay income taxes or pay at a much reduced
rate you would have to ask Romney that since he pays less then half the rate I
do, ask him about why he feels entitled.
I'm not positive on the answer to Pack's question, but one answer
could be...the private equity investment industry. Anyway, it seems to pay much
better than anything the government has going.
I see more money, and more businesses on Corporate Welfare than I do the
people's General Welfare.Do you suppose Romney is upset with
WallStreet, Banks and other Corporations who pay NO taxes?Who are
"entitled" to Government perks and hand-outs, since he believes
Corporations are People too.
no reason for Romney to get back on track - because his video actually helps him
with his base and independents; the only people offended are the professional
victim class that secretly know he is right
Counter Intelligence...Yeah, sure. It might help Mitt with the GOP
base, but it will definitely hurt him with independents. I'm an
independent who has voted GOP numerous times. I'll never give my vote to
Mitt. Never.Is it too late for the GOP to nominate a different
candidate? One who doesn't suffer from foot in mouth disease?
@CIthe professional victim class? really? you think that helps his
campaign? You do realize that the "professional victim class" includes
not only poor working class people but also many in the middle class and upper
To merich39 4:33 p.m. Sept. 18, 2012Is it too late for the GOP to
nominate a different candidate? One who doesn't suffer from foot in mouth
disease?-----------------------Agreed. I keep hoping
that the Republicans will gain some common sense and put Jon Huntsman on the
ticket, at its head. He is the only sane, rational candidate the Republicans
had in this election cycle. AND he is the one with the experience, both
domestic and foreign, to get this country going the right way. The party
won't, of course -- Huntsman is too sane and rational, and is not an
extreme far right wing authoritarian.
