Romney: Obama ‘Did Not’ Raise Taxes
ABC News, by Gregory Krieg

Original Article

Posted By:viola, 9/26/2012 7:06:59 PM

Mitt Romney strayed from his own campaign’s talking points during a “reset” rally with running mate Paul Ryan today in Ohio. In the midst of remarks otherwise ridiculing the president’s tax record, Romney said: “I admit this, [President Obama] has one thing he did not do in his first four years — he’s said he’s going to do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes.” Behind him, Ryan appeared to wince at the mention.

Right. Romney said he didn't raise them yet - emphasis on yet. ObamaCare doesn't take full effect until 2014. Meanwhile, Obie's raised private insurance premiums sky-high.

I'm glad that the Romney team did correct this. Has everyone forgotten the Tanning tax that has already went into effect?

Kind of dumb, and only something that a wimpy Republican would say. A street smart Democrat would never say anything like that. In a couple of days we will probably be seeing Romney on a Obama campaign video that will be edited so that Romney is shown saying only that "Obama did not raise taxes". Its called shooting yourself in the foot!

Every one of the Obama campaign videos that I have seen are deceitful and dishonest and Obama could obviously care less. There is one playing now, that claims falsely that Romney only paid a tax rate of 14% on 12 million dollars of income. That's deceitful, because the truth is Romney paid the 14% on long-term capital gains and not income.

Also why are not the wimpy Republicans pointing out to the country that the capital gains tax is a secondary tax on money that has already been previously taxed as earned income, probably at a much higher tax rate of about 30%.

Romney made it crystal clear that Obama wants to raise taxes in his second term (after the election, natch), and that America cannot endure another four years of Obama's misgovernance. I didn't notice Paul Ryan's "wince at the mention" either; he nodded.

ABC "News" plays gotcha'. Big deal. Anyone at ABC News wanna play gotcha' with Obama and Biden? Didn't think so. (Maybe Jake Tapper, the only one of that motley crew who has any integrity at all.)

But to be honest, Obama did not raise taxes YET. You don't want Romney to be disingenuous, do you? Now, you cannot exactly claim that Obamacare has raised taxes because it hasn't happened yet. We all know it will happen though, unless we can either repeal or completely dismantle the act. Still, it can be clarified that when the Affordable Health Care Act does go into effect, then we will have the highest raise ever.

Stop calling him "president" like some kind of servile spit wad thrower.
Otherwise, ABC news, an extension of the reelect Obama campaign, is just doing some dirty work for their boy. Unfortunately they don't call our side the stupid party as many of you are eager to swallow this red herring hook line and sinker. You can bellyache and moan about Romney AFTER the election. Right now you are supposed to be pretending to be doing all you can to defeat Dear Leader, The Six Trillion Dollar Man. There will be plenty of time after election day to lecture us on the merits of a Gingrich/ Palin ticket.

The US Supreme Court in the Obama care case said that Obama care was a tax, so Obama did raise taxes during his term, in fact Obama care is loaded with probably about 20 different taxes.

True that Obie has some taxes already in effect, but we ain't seen nothin' yet, especially if he's re-elected. Perhaps Romney wasn't precise enough, but we're not really noticing what ObamaCare has done yet. That's probably by design. We must defeat the Democrats unless we want this to continue and expand.

KABUL – Death by stoning for convicted adulterers is being written into Afghan law, a senior official said on Monday, the latest sign that human rights won at great cost since the Taliban were ousted in 2001 are rolling back as foreign troops withdraw. "We are working on the draft of a sharia penal code where the punishment for adultery, if there are four eyewitnesses, is stoning," said Rohullah Qarizada, who is part of the sharia Islamic law committee working on the draft and head of the Afghan Independent Bar Association.

France will not launch an assault on Syria alone and will wait for U.S. Congress to decide on whether to punish President Bashar al-Assad´s government for a gas attack that killed hundreds of civilians, Interior Minister Manuel Valls said. Valls made the comments on Sunday to Europe 1 radio as pressure mounted in France for President Francois Hollande to put the question of intervention to a parliamentary vote.

BRITAIN allowed firms to sell chemicals to Syria capable of being used to make nerve gas, the Sunday Mail can reveal today. Export licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride were granted months after the bloody civil war in the Middle East began. The chemical is capable of being used to make weapons such as sarin, thought to be the nerve gas used in the attack on a rebel-held Damascus suburb which killed nearly 1500 people, including 426 children, 10 days ago.

WASHINGTON — A continued decline in the federal budget deficit this year is resulting in a better than expected fiscal forecast for 2013 from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. The CBO projects a $642 billion budget deficit for fiscal year 2013, down more than $200 billion from its February estimate and the smallest annual shortfall since 2008. It is the lowest level of deficit spending to date under President Obama, who faced $1 trillion or more in annual deficits during his first term.

At least one lawmaker suggested that West Fertilizer was “willfully of the grid” to avoid scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other regulators, Reuters reports.

Republican governors embrace
part of health-care law
Washington Post, by Sarah Kliff    Original Article
Posted By: viola- 2/8/2013 8:54:17 AM     Post Reply
Several Republican governors have embraced a key pillar of President Obama’s health-care law: Extending Medicaid to 17 million Americans. Many Republicans balked at the expansion when the Supreme Court made the Medicaid expansion optional in its ruling last in the summer. Supporters of the law worried that the opposition could undermine the entire health-care overhaul by shrinking the pool of Americans who would gain coverage. But six Republican governors have since come to back the program, including Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder on Wednesday and Ohio’s John Kasich on Monday. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced her support in mid-January.

Chevy Volt sales are cranking up. General Motors sold three times as many Chevrolet Volts in 2012 as it did in 2011, which was the car´s first full year on the market. GM sold 23,461 Volts in 2012 compared with just 7,671 in 2011. While it´s an impressive jump, the Volt is still one of Chevy´s lowest-selling cars. However, the Volt greatly outdid the Corvette, for instance, of which only 14,000 were sold last year.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
