John Kerry: ‘Mitt Romney Is Perpetrating A Fraud On The American People’

Source: tpm

On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said Mitt Romney's tax reform plan -- at least its promise of revenue neutrality -- is one big fraud.

"Mitt Romney is perpetrating a fraud on the American people," he said. Referring to Romney's $5 trillion plan, Kerry said, "If you gave him all the deductions that there are ... you've got $2.5 trillion. He doesn't want all the deductions. And he's trying to fake it to the American people."

"You have a man running for the presidency of the United States of AMerica on the central issue of our time and he's not being straight with the American people. I find it stunning --it's to me disqualifying."

2. I don't understand

how this is not a deal breaker for every person in the country.

The media should be EVISCERATING him for it.

They meekly address it from time time, but not like they should.

And, why would ANYONE vote for someone who bald faced lies over something like this?

I just don't get it.

6. Because the corpmedia is too ignorant to press the facts and too beholden to corporate powers

like Mitt's cronies to try and right their wrongs.

16. i don't either.

i know it's ignorance, willful and otherwise. i believe there's a huge dose of racism that plays into it whether acknowledged or not. i know it's a damned shame of a media in this country. but STILL. how can anyone think this supercilious, incessantly mendacious, warmongering elitist is the better candidate?! i just don't get it either.

29. Yes, I agree with you...

this is in large part due to racism and I had thought by now that we had out grown it.
But we have not reached that point but I hope one day that we will as nation do so...

18. It could be that most of them own shares in Bain

that is the only reason i can think of, but to be clear if the media has been really doing their job, there is no way Mitt Romney will be standing on that stage with Obama. No way.

America has a gangsta running for the presidency.

8. It shut up Joe too...

He said it , and he was clearly and seriously annoyed too which made it even better. But the best part was that it shut up and shut down Joe Scarborough who spent the entire morning trying to spin one line from a snap poll.

before about Bush. He certainly isn't bashful about calling them as he sees them.

They showed Bush's best sound bytes, and didn't show Kerry.

...become. Since 2004, I have watched and learned. And Senator Kerry has never quit fighting for this country.

24. It's easy for some to continue to blame Kerry

instead of fault and more blame at the media.

Dang shame that the Senator keeps getting stones thrown at from the so-called Dem, Liberal base.


Thanks to you and YvonneCa for being some of the many truth tellers here.

19. Mitt's whole plan is to appeal to people's greed with that 20% cut....

There are a lot of people who don't have a mortgage or a student in school so taking away those deductions don't affect them and they believe they'll get a 20% raise. What these idiots don't get is that it's not 20% of your pay, it's 20% of the PERCENT.
