1. Said Mitt Romney should pay no taxes instead of 13.9%.

DERP.

3. Guess he supports Newt then. Gingrich's plan would have Romney pay zero

on the vast majority of his 'income'.

4. How about a counter proposal of 50%

and settle somewhere in the middle?

6. how about a counter proposal of 190%

 

and we settle somewhere in the middle? Much more to my liking, and compromise is a good thing, afterall.

8. Would You Approve Those Rates...

...for retirees who live on pensions who also pay the 15%. Careful with wielding those broad brushes...

10. if a retiree is making $21 million a year, hell yes!

 

Romney is nearly a senior citizen. So your belief he should be taxed at 15% is repulsive.

11. I'm Talking Pensioners...People On Limited And Fixed Incomes.

I'm on record here for wanting to have a graduated captial gains rate...15% or even less for those who earn $100k a year or less...and then upwards to 20% at 250k, 25% at 500k and 30% or higher for those with 1 million or more a year in adjusted income. So under my Mittens would pay a lot more than he is right now while those on with fixed incomes wouldn't suffer...

5. But yea, investing is much more valuable than work....

I had this same kind of argument when I became a tax preparer back in 1986.

I argued with the partners in the CPA firm I worked with saying that money is money.

They countered back with the risk factor and I said well the sky is the limit for gains so why should they be awarded more for potentially getting more...

7. The man is a cretin.

I'm going to be so happy to have the opportunity to vote against him this November.

Cheers...
