Mitt Romney was right (on taxes)
Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/15/2013 7:38:57 AM

More than eight in ten Americans believe that you should do everything you can to pay the lowest tax rate possible according to new Washington Post-ABC News polling, a finding that suggests that people likely hold politicians to a standard of conduct they themselves don’t adhere to.Eighty-five percent of Americans — and 86 percent of registered voters — say that they approve of people “doing everything within the law to lower their taxes.” Nearly six in ten say they “strongly” approve of doing all you can to pay as little as possible.

People on welfare don´t pay taxes. Is that the way to go--just jump over onto welfare? Fifty percent of citizens ARE on the dole. Some of them need to be.

Of Course Romney was right. Who wants to pay more than what is demanded from them?

On the contrary, Obama repeatedly spoke out against what Romney was saying and YET he does the exact same thing.

Obama is a scammer with a willing media who praise his name.

Is this nothing but an effort to justify the low rate paid by Obama, after months of criticizing Romney for his?

And these same voters forget this by November election day. Last November they believed a man who continues to lie over one who has been a successful business man. The only way to wake up this country is to hold elections on April 16th. The pain of taxes will be fresh in everyones mind.

#5, Dick Armey´s flat tax plan required taxpayers to write checks to the government for their taxes. His theory was the same as yours, the pain would make a difference. He always said that taxes withheld from paychecks don´t have the same impact, because a taxpayer never sees that money. Writing a check instead fixes that problem.

President Romney was right about just about everything....

If the BO hadn´t had the union thugs and the behavioral psychologist intimidating the "welfare recipients" into voting with personal phone calls -- President Romney would have won....

Soooooo -- now WE have the "have/nots" telling the "have earned its" -- what to do -- while eating off their table....

If I´m taxed on dividends from investments as "unearned income" why aren´t all government benefits taxed as well? Why does someone pulling in $60,000 a year in welfare entitlements pay no taxes, but someone earning the same amount through his own labor pays through the nose? If we must have income taxes, then EVERYONE should have to pay them, no matter how they receive their income.

#9-no one will ever convince me that Mr. Romney did not win that election. It was stolen, pure and simple. Every state with voter ID was won by Romney. There were districts in Penn. in which Romney did not win a single vote. How could that be possible?? There were reports of people voting for Romney, and it went through the machine as Obama. Then Hagel, who was involved with the manufacturer of the machines, gets appointed as Sec. Def?? Chicago politics at its worst.

And don´t even talk about what we owe in state taxes. Ridiculous that they can pay less than we can percentage wise. Bitter? Noooooo, not us. Jerks...

Per 10, we will never get the moochers to pay taxes on their benefits, because they have artfully been termed "ENTITLEMENTS". So I believe the trick is to convince the public that everyone is "entitled" to make a living, so therefore their earnings are "ENTITLEMENTS" and should no more be taxed than the swag the moochers suck out of the public treasury. After all, legitimate income was earned, not unearned.

Whether right or wrong; Romney was the wrong candidate at the wrong time for the wrong line of work.
Apparently the stolen election canard will reach mythic levels despite the cold reality that Romney lost every battleground state and each was governed by R´s; both executive and legislative.

Mitt Romney was right...

and far enough right that he should have been elected instead of this horrible
Wannabe Kommie Dicktater we have now in the White Hut.

It´s a sign of being utterly clueless to think McCain and Romney are alike.

Apparently the small faction known as Tea Party thinks they own the GOP based on
the 2010 vote, so they get to pick the nominee for all of us.

We have GOP primaries and Mitt Romney got more votes than all other candidates combined.

But some people still think (erroneously) that a 2010 midterm result will dictate
who the nominee is from a 2012 primary season, and they have a fit and a tantrum
when they don´t get their own way.

"Entitlement" is a bad word.
2010 does not entitle anyone to own the GOP nomination in ensuing years.
Rush made this horrific mistake and whined against "Establishment" and Romney, whom he
endorsed over McCain in 2008.

Get over the 2010 results.
We´re being screwed by a Kommie instead of having a financial whiz who is plenty
conservative like Romney...
because the clueless are still whining about not owning the GOP after the
Tea Party assisted wins in 2010.
Get over it. 2010 does not dictate 2012 or anything else. It stands alone. Deal with it.

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of
Congress Scheduled for Next Thursday
Breitbart Instablog, by John Sexton    Original Article
Posted By: drive- 4/4/2014 1:52:35 PM     Post Reply
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress. But censorship-inclined activists are now eager to

There’s a scene in P.G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves where Bertie Wooster receives a telegram from his fearsome Aunt Dahlia that reads: “Come at once.” Bertie is puzzled. He reflects and agonizes and sends several follow-up telegrams requesting more lucid instruction. Finally he shows the cable to his perceptive manservant Jeeves and asks him to translate. “I think Mrs. Travers wants you to come at once, sir,” Jeeves says. Sometimes it seems like the liberal base of the Democratic Party has a similar problem. They’ve been saying for decades: “We want Medicare for all.” Senior Democrats furrow their brows and ruminate, they

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap.

WASHINGTON — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba´s communist government. McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
