    I have no way of determining whether my taxes would go up or down under Romney. I know he wants to lower rates. He also wants to get rid of credits and deductions and refuses to say which ones.
    Mitt Romney Refuses To Say Which Tax Deductions He Would Eliminate

    If I assume the worst - that he'll get rid of all deductions, credits, and exemptions - even with a lowering of the rates by 20%, my income tax liability jumps from $10200 under Obama to $14200 under Romney.

    So am I supposed to vote for the guy because maybe he won't raise my taxes in order to give tax breaks to himself?


    EDIT: I would also like to add that I"ve been paying taxes for 18 years, and during that time have had no children. My taxes during that period went - in part - to pay for tax credits for people who have children. Now I have a child, and I'll be damned if I don't get the same prefferential tax treatment I helped to fund for others.

    We know your taxes personally won't change, because they don't tax welfare and food stamps! :eusa_whistle:

    And if someone showed you in a clear and concise manner, you'd ignore it or call it lies. Unless of course it was bad for Romney then you'd accept it.

    Hack.

    I thought the left wasn't worried about taxes. You have to realize a couple of things though, Romney won't force America to become a little Europe and he won't hamstring businesses with useless regulations and he probably doesn't think corporations and banks are evil. That translates to bad news for socialists and most likely an economic upturn and that usually means no tax increases.

    Obama has created jobs and this country is way better off than it was when the republicans handed it over.


    We can see what obama is doing.

    to understand the choice between the two romeny needs to tell us EXACTLY what is is he will do.

    why does he keep refusing to tell us his plan?

    You know one thing for sure, or you should, if Obama get Re-elected his Policies will inevitably mean higher taxes for us all.
