""What we don’t need is a tax increase on our successful job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs in just two years."

Considering this coming from the party that lost more than that in a single month... I am not sure he is a very credible one to comment on this. I do think we need a balanced approach, with a focus on locking down expenses, and raising targeted revenue. Never in the history of this country has lower taxes balanced the budget, nor led to job growth.

Romney would love to eliminate long term capital gains. if we got rid of capital gains, even if we took unemployment to zero, you could not grow your way through job creation to replace those funds. And a side effect of this would be that Romney's own personal tax liability would go to a rate of zero percent because his income is derived from long term capital gains.

Neither plan is workable.... democrat nor republican. We can't hit people with a trillion dollar tax increase, and we can't give the upper class a trillion dollar tax exemption either.

That's exactly why I advocate big deductions for those who create jobs.

Obama advocated that as well, until he found that so many of his supporters are those who avoid taxes and send jobs overseas, spending American consumer dollars to do so. Why else do you think Obama conveniently never mentions his tax plans since the first year? It's because his Democrats and the Republicans have agreed to stonewall the right thing. I wish all voters would send them all packing until we get someone in office who WILL concentrate on the economy instead of polishing the boots of political 'friends'.

Congress in general and Democrats in particular have tow ways to rule: tax and spend or spend and tax.
