    Conversation on Meet the Press (paraphrased)

    Romney: Oh yeah, we'll cut taxes and cut the deficit by getting rid of loopholes.
    David Gregory: What loopholes will you get rid of?
    Romney: Oh... don't worry, we'll close loopholes
    Gregory: Now's your chance to tell the American public... what loopholes?
    Romney: oh we'll close loopholes, trust us.

    Really: Why won't they say that what they'd have to cut is the tax on mortgage interest, charitable deductions and deductions for state taxes?

    how much more will that add up to than going back to the additional 4% that we paid during the clinton years?

    Gee, where is a budget and the specifics by democrats over the past several years? What's dear Obama's plan? After all, he's managed to royally fuck our economy- double gas prices, add 6 trillion to the debt- more than all Presidents before him, COMBINED and in only 3.5 years.. You leftists must be so proud.. Did I mention that real unemployment is hovering around the 20% mark and that for the first time since WWII, we have the lowest number of people employed in this country? The Food Stamp President has managed to add more people to that role than any other President all the while dropping incomes by over 4300.00 a year.. And here you sit asking about Mitt Romney's plan?!! ROFLMAO You've always been a joke.. Your threads are known for being insane and filled with lies.. You never disappoint! :) Oh and let's check out this doozy.. :

    obama says he'd go back to the clinton tax rate for the top wage earners.

    that is specific.

    so tell me, what will it cost you if they close those "loopholes"? (which btw i don't think are loopholes... corporations not paying taxes on overseas income... now THAT'S a loophole.

    Obama has always given specifics and has even asked voters to contact their congress person and tell them to vote. Until that happens, jobs bills languish while congress goes on another vacation.

    The reason R&R wont give specifics is that its middle class loop holes they plan to plug - things like tax deduction for your home.

    Romney said that during a debate. Its been a while so I can't remember the rest but that's where they're heading.

    Reason is, the 1% really NEEDS their loopholes and they really NEED their taxes cut even more than one percenter Bush already did.
