    After saying 47% of Americans pay no income tax, blithely unaware of state income taxes, today Mitt comes back and says the "47%"* WANT to pay taxes. If so, why does he avoid all he can? Why so much venom directed at taxation on this board?

    *If ever there was a DIVISIVE candidate, Mitt takes the cake. Not only is he an "us v. them" type, he even gives PERCENTAGES.

    What about the people who are fighting the constitutional battle over the IRS? There are good arguments that pay for labor is excluded from 'revenue'. To many Constitutional fundamentalists, paying no Federal income tax is heroism.

    I asked you on another thread. Can we see your receipt for OVERPAYING your taxes or for additional contributions that you made to The Treasury Dept to help the rest of us out?

    He paid what he had to...doesn't need to or have to pay one red cent more. Get over it...he's rich.

    Some post deserve a considered thoughtful reply, this one, not so much.

    Got talking points?

    You do realize that you usually dont mention State income tax in a discussion about FEDERAL income tax, right?

    Willard doing some "class warfare" in front of filthy rich donor types? Whoda thunk it? It was only lefties that engaged in class warfare, we're told - except Romney did it behind closed doors.

    Funniest thing is Jimmy Carter's grandson helped get Willard punk'd. Muhahahaha!
