Response to madamesilverspurs (Original post)

14. There are three problems with this

It's cute, but...

a) Romney took a $77,000 tax deduction (subtracts from taxable income) and not a credit (subtracts from taxes) for his horse. At Romney's income level, $77,000 in tax deductions equals MAYBE fifty bucks in tax savings.

b) It's his wife's horse, not Mitt's.

c) It was actually $27,000 for the horse, and $50,000 for a car with a reinforced roof.
