    A report on the evening news in France tonight showed that, following injuries sustained in an auto accident while working for his religion, Mr. Romney paid only feeble charge as contribution to all his care and time in hospital.

    I'm sure the French taxpayers appreciated paying the medical bill of a visitor.

    Was that the only way he could be treated?

    If you were in that situation, would you not go with the most affordable? Why would you pay more if you did not have to?


    For example, I believe the mortgage interest rate deduction should be eliminated from our tax laws. But I would be a fool not to take that deduction right now since it exists. I would be handicapping myself unneccesarily if everyone else was taking the deduction.

    Did this happen while Obama was toking it up in the Choomwagon, or when Obama was eating a dog?

    As he was representing the LDS, wouldn't it be logical that they pay?

    Mostly agreed, though I think the deduction should be continued for those under a modest threshold. Really, I think the IRS should not consider wages for labor as revenue, so those covered by the above probably would not have an income tax to deduct from.
