    While increasing them for everyone else.


    The Romney camp has already called them "liberal outfits".

    But when he was citing the exact same folks to attack Rick Perry..they were "independent".

    Who cares if it accelerates job formation?

    A lot of economical thinkers think if we take care of business, that business will take care of us.

    But it hasn't.

    Previous administrations that cut that tax rate for the top tier didn't see job growth. Both Reagan and George W. Bush took these actions. And with very much the same results.

    The top tier wound up not only not investing and paying themselves bigger salaries..but job growth actually slowed.

    Well there's Math..then there's Romney Math.

    I saw Michael Steele on one of the MSNBC shows last night and even he was at a loss for words. The study factored in the economic growth (rather generously I might add) as well.

    They really is nothing to justify this policy. Zip.

    People like swallow only care about hurting those mean ol' rich people whom life dealt a better hand.
