Truckers don't pay income tax

Romney says he loves small businessmen.(They're delicious on toast points.)

Romney hates the people who don't pay income tax.

Truckers are both. After deducting fuel, depreciation on an extremely expensive asset, per diem, etc., any trucker who knows his way around IRS Publication 17 can get the feds to give him money.

And the only time they feel like victims is when they're at the pumps. But they don't feel like victims. There is no time for that. They have work to do.

disproportional share when it comes to fuel,license fees,and sales tax for tires. It comes with the territory,been there ,done that. Sure is a money rat hole,and a family wrecker of a life style. Hats off to anybody that jockeys a rig.

2. Mitt doesn't care about all that

A trucker could make $150,000 per year, spend it all in deductible ways, and be seen by Mitt as a parasite.
