I agree anunitu, my feeling is let everyones taxes go up. Thats all it amounts to and most would deal with it. But President Obama made a promise repeatedly stating to the working class that no ones taxes would go up for anyone making less then $200,000 single or $250,000 joint.

Then there's Mitt Romney who won't go away. What's up with that????

It really is alarming that Mitt Romney could have been elected President of the United States.

Quote
More than anything, Romney's latest words call into question what he thinks government is all about in a democratic society. At least as I understand it, government -- federal, state and local -- is all about providing services to people, from police, fire, education and highways to defense, clean air, water and food, rough justice and some kind of social safety net.

What are not "gifts" to Romney are corporate subsidies, lower taxes for the rich and companies and tariff protections like the one that results in Americans paying twice the world price for sugar. Or windfall profits worth billions for the oil and mining industries for low-price leasing of federal lands; or government giveaways of other billions in spectrum to television stations; or $15 billion in grants, price supports and other subsidies to farmers and agribusinesses; or billions more to the ethanol industry; or hundreds of billions in patent protections to the drug and still other industries. Not to mention tens of billions of dollars a year in tax breaks to business from all levels of government.

Is This Willard's Last Gaffe??
