    We all know that Romney has taken full advantage of what's legal in our tax codes. It's given him a tax rate of something like 13.7%. So given that the laws have worked so well for himself and his cronies, how hard do you think he'll try to reform them - that is, aside from lowering their tax rates even further. Anybody think that even one tax loophole will be closed?

    Romney won't do anything he promises.

    So far he's promised to "finish the job" of completely destroying the nation's economy by expanding on the Bush tax cuts for the rich, by giving even more tax cuts to the wealthiest of the wealthy, while raising taxes on the poor and middle class.

    We all also know that the wealthy Democrats have taken advantage of the same tax codes. And yet, curiously, it's only an issue when it's a Republican running against your messiah. The stench of hypocrisy is strong today.

    Obama at least wanted to let the Bush tax cuts expire. What have the republicans done except block any kind of tax reform?

    Really?? The Pubs have blocked tax reform bills?

    Care to name those bills that you imply the Dems must have written?

    Please don't tell me that allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire is your definition of "tax reform."

    Indeed. And nevermind that the Congress has to be willing to go for anything Romney wants to do. :eusa_shhh:

    Dems and Repubs only push bills that have been GIVEN TO THEM BY LOBBYISTS!

    Lobbyists wrote the 1700 page "ObamaCare" bill more than a decade ago and waited for the right time to introduce it. Why do you suppose Nancy Pelosi had no idea what was in it? Because she had nothing to do with creating it!

    The Banker Bailout Bill was written by the Banker Lobbyists as well.

    The Left/Right, Liberal/Conservative argument is just used to keep us arguing with each other and to keep the focus off of THEM. Classic divide and conquer tactics.
