I find it slightly hard to believe you pay 42% in income taxes.

I was paying probably slightly more than that when I lived in NYC in 2008.

Apparently, it was Jimmy Carter's grandson who helped the video get leaked.

Romney said he pays between 10-15%. Splitting the difference, I definitely pay at least 36%. More, actually.

But I'm one of those 47%-ers who relies on government to take care of my every need. Including the $240 I pay a month for private health insurance.

I am sure Romney pays higher per centage on his 'income' than you do on yours. At most you would pay the same.

And I am sure you pay no more on your capital gains, dividend or other such reciepts than Romney or I do for that matter.

All of Romney's income is in capital gains. Which is taxed less than earned income.

I have dividend income that is taxed at a rate for that type of income. I have had capital gains that is taxed at 15%. And I have 1099 income that is taxed at the graduated percentage based on the amount.

What I am saying is when Romney worked at Bain any wages he was collected he paid more than 15%. And on that 15% he paid on capital gains, some of it can be offset by credits for certain investments. So whatever 'earned income' Romney ever had the books, wages, CEO pay, he paid a lot more than 15% on that portion of the monies he received in any one tax filing year.

It is a bit of a 'word game'. If Clinton had said he did have intercourse with Monica, he would have been telling the truth.

If an NFL player gets paid 10 million a year, he would be taxed at a pretty high rate. If he did not pay it people would call him a tax cheat. If he got injured and was in a wheel chair and collected 10 million in capital gains from investments and paid 15% no one would accuse him of not paying his fair taxes.

I believe Romney shelters money in foreign banks, and probably has for a long time. Why do you think he doesn't want to release tax returns?

I saw something today about the states with the highest number of people who don't pay income tax. Most of them are red states and only two went for Obama. The rest were for McCain.

Perhaps Romney's biggest sin was stating that the 47% of people who don't pay income tax are all Obama voters, which is absolutely absurd.

My opinion on Mitt Romney has gone down by a good third from whatever it was a year ago.

Thinking about this the last 24 hours, it only gets worse.

He says 47% will never vote for him and that he will not try to get their vote.

ok, so the other 53%? how much of that group can he expect to get?

Let's say he gets most of them, 7 out of ten? 8 out of ten? or even 9 out of 10?
Keep in mind there are a lot of rich liberals and successful gay people that are not in the 47% of loafers, takers.

If only 1 in 10 goes for Obama, that would be 5.3% plus 47% or 52.3%.

and we all know Obama will bet more than 10% of the non-takers.


With Romney's pessimistic thinking why would any one give him donations??

no but the rednecks that support him, that also get some government programs, he let them know that he looks down on them, they should not be taking from the government, that is tax payers money they are getting

they should be shopping around or getting loans from their parents.

It's a real shame how Romney has sold himself out this way.

There was a time not so long ago when I thought him winning wouldn't be so bad even though I prefer Obama.

But remember, we don't need to ask him about them! Even though it'd only be fair play since Obama supporters had to put up with the "birth certificate proof" bullshit for the last couple years, and even though it'd be perfectly fair and reasonable to scrutinize his taxes the way the Republicans seem to feel the need to scrutinize what us lower class people are paying in taxes. I mean, supposedly their only concern is to make sure everyone is paying their "fair share", right? Nothing at all to do with the kind of people who are/aren't paying taxes.

Oh, the irony, eh?

My mom just raised an interesting question-if Romney seems to believe that we're not entitled to things like food or housing or health care or whatever, then why care about what we pay in taxes or whether people are working? 'Cause, apparently, we don't need anything, so it'd be pointless for us to pay in, right?

That clip is just beyond infuriating. I really hope more people see it and it further sinks his chances in November, because someone with that attitude towards certain portions of the population should NOT be running our country.

Well, technically, the people he was talking about already don't "pay in".
