1. Most. Out. Of. Touch. Candidate. EVER.

My GOD. PLEASE. Keep on talking, Mitt. Keep on digging that hole. The only reason you're still in this race is because 50+ million Americans share the same brain. In any other industrialized country, you'd be laughed off the stage.

5. Thanks for saying that! I really do believe about 50+ million Americans are

willfully dumber than a bag of rocks. I just can't make excuses for them anymore, they are just completely willfully STUPID! Exactly as you said, "In any other industrialized country, (he'd) be laughed off the stage."

2. Greedy motherless fuck. Sorry. I am so angry about this nob I could spit......

Capital gains taxes are lower because they've been taxed my ass. Almost all money gets taxed several times. And to think that at one time I might have voted for this morally and ethically challenged piece of shit.

3. A more deft politician would have said no it is not fair

"I paid the legal tax rate for that type of income. But no, it is not right that investment income is taxed less than regular income. As president I will fight to change that."

Instead we get the Harvard Business school excuse that sounds like something out of a Heritage Foundation symposium.

15. It's an old GOP nonsense claim that b/c a corporation pays taxes

on their profits (i.e. "that money has been taxed already"), the investors in that business deserve to have their profits from selling their shares taxed at a lower rate. (And, as we've learned, many large corporations pay little or no actual federal taxes, so Romney's "at 35%" claim is pretty weak.)

Of course, the company you work for pays taxes but you, a mere mortal, deserve NO tax break on the salary that they pay you out of profits that HAVE BEEN TAXED ALREADY.

I actually think it would be okay to tax investments at a lower rate for people making less than $250K a year. But when someone like Mitt Romney makes 100% of his income from investments, it is NOT right that he pays the same as someone making $50K and it is definitely not "fair" because that money has been "taxed already."

7. Keep up dissing people who make $50K, willard. Keep it up! :)

Yeah, right. People will stop investing if they are allowed to keep 'only' $18 millions instead of twenty...

8. But, Mitt, I thought you said the corporation was a person.

If the corporation is a person, shouldn't it pay its own taxes? What does that other person's tax payment, that corporation's tax payment, have to do with your tax payment.

It's not the money that is taxed. It's the taxpayer who is taxed.

Either a corporation is a person or it isn't. You can't pretend it is a separate person when it is convenient and then claim it is the same when it is inconvenient.

Inconsistent thinking once again.

11. Another 1% dictator

trying to tell the IRS how much he's going to pay. This is a loathsome person at best. Typical of how rich people think they can wave their hand and dismiss soceity into a worthless gnat they can just swatt away like we don't matter.

14. Taxed already?

Really? So the money my employer pays me hasn't been taxed already? Of course it has just like every bit of money anyone gets, there are several layers of taxation they go through. The money my employer pays me he gets from the products he sells which were taxed.

So giving a tax decrease to some filthy rich investor stimulates the economy but giving a tax decrease to a working man doesn't stimulate the economy? Wouldn't it make a working person work harder and try to get more money just like the filthy rich?

The only reason the filthy rich get less taxes is because ever since Saint Raygun the fox was put in charge of the hen house.
