    Marco Rubio On Romney Tax Plan: Don't Touch The Biggest Deductions

    Wow. How cool is that.

    'course, just cuz Rubio can count doesn't mean Rmoney can -

    But what the heck. One thing that's consistent with the Rs is that they scream and holler about the deficit when they're not in power and then spend like drunken sailors the minute they're back in power.

    RobMe has already said he plans to do that.

    He also said he doesn't plan to do that.

    Then he said he does plan to do that.

    The money he wants to spend has to come from somewhere ...

    Our politicians are cowards.

    The mortage interest deduction must go.

    The Social Security and Medicare eligibility ages must be raised to at least 70.

    The employer provided health insurance tax exemption must go.


    The solutions to our budget problems are simple. Finding enough courageous politicians to accomplish them is damned near impossible.

    The tax policy center is a left wing hack front. When you want to talk math...do the math.

    Otherwise, SFTU.

    I'm not running for prez and expecting voters to ignore the facts in favor of my lies. That's Mittens and his boy prince who are doing that.

    Any way you cut it, R&R are full of shit.

    If you believe I've miscounted, then YOU do the math and show me where their addition "adds up".

    Betcha can't and betcha reply with the same old tired insults and grade school name calling.

    Drunken sailors stop spending money when they run out of it, politicians keep spending on borrowed money.

    Can Obama do basic math? He said he was going to cut the deficit in half and that unemployment wouldn't go over 8%.

    Speaking of spending like drunken sailors, how much is the deficit for Obama's term in office?

    He mispoke...he meant divide it by 1/2 which is the same as doubling it. He's almost made it.

    Maybe that is why he is asking for more time.

    There are still hopes of progress he hasn't crushed.
