Romney Will Not pay a cent back on the deficit
That is a fact.

Romney wants to start a couple new wars, which are not deficit neutral !!

All of us less than 55, will not get Medicare, which is not such a great idea.

Please tell me something Good that Romney will do?
Isn't that the core question?

Go ahead, I'm listening...
(not really, since we will read it here on ST)

Please, Why Vote for Romney, what good will he do??

Shack - what you posted might be true but it is also debatable and sort of a straw-man and only a small nuanced piece of the entire argument.
The bottom line is it wont work - it's the same policy that got us into trouble under Bush.
It is very bad policy. We don't even need 5 percent growth - 5 percent to what?

The overall math here is ridiculous

I can promise you that very, very few of you understand what is going on here!!
I'm pretty smart and study this stuff for hours everyday and I've studied politics for decades and I am only getting a feel for it in the last few months.

I can tell you that if Romney wins I might have to become a capitalist to protect my family - its not the kind of world I ever thought I would have to live in. But instead of helping people I will make money tearing up guys like Romney and thinking about and protecting what is MINE!!
If people are this stupid maybe they deserve what they get after all?

Princeton Economist Harvey Rosen: Obama Campaign Misrepresenting My Work On Romney's Tax Plan

The Huffington Post | By Bonnie Kavoussi Posted: 10/08/2012 3:01 pm EDT Updated: 10/09/2012 9:56 am EDT

The Obama campaign claims that a Princeton economist's findings support its assertions about Mitt Romney's tax plan, but the economist says that's not exactly true.

"Harvard economist Martin Feldstein and Princeton economist Harvey Rosen both concede that paying for Romney’s tax cuts would require large tax increases on families making between $100,000 and $200,000," the Obama campaign wrote in a press release on Sunday.

But Princeton economist Harvey Rosen's paper analyzing Romney's tax plan didn't exactly look at families making between $100,000 and $200,000. Instead, it analyzed families making more than $100,000 per year and families making more than $200,000 per year. The second group is part of the first group, and Rosen did not separate the two.

Rosen told the Weekly Standard in an email that he felt that the Obama campaign misrepresented the paper on a broader level too. "I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work," he wrote in an email to the publication.

Rosen's paper did find that families making more than $100,000 per year would have to pay $81 billion more in taxes under Romney's tax plan, a 12 percent increase. But his paper did not explicitly say whether these families, whose incomes he assumes would be rising, would actually pay a higher tax rate.

Rosen's conclusion that Romney's tax plan is mathematically possible rests on a questionable assumption: namely that Romney's tax cuts for the rich would lead to robust economic growth. In fact, economic growth sharply slowed during the Bush administration, when President George W. Bush cut taxes for the rich. Brad DeLong, economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley, also notes that President Ronald Reagan's tax cuts for the rich did not lead to much stronger economic growth either.

A number of analysts, including those at the Tax Policy Center, have found that Romney's tax plan would have to raise taxes on the middle class in order to be mathematically possible. But Rosen may not be in that category. His analysis first would need to separate middle-class families from rich families for us to know.

Freaking psychopath Oligarch talking to his serfs.
Pretty much sums up everything that a democratic republic isn't.

Shack - take some time to read this and think about what this kind of thing means on a larger scale - both with a long historical look and for the future.

People are all saying how creepy Obama is now. The cadence of his speeches plus his body language is getting weird.

meanwhile...Obama Supporters: Vandals and Thieves show their true Liberal colors. Warning- typical everyday Liberal obscene and profane language will be heard in the clip. This is who they are.

Think of all the really good leaders that have had a personal impact on your life from your coaches, teachers, whoever. How many of those were selfish, materialistic people? None of mine were. Mine were generous, and selfless. They commanded respect from the whole community. Does Mitt Romney give you this impression?

I think we need to increase revenue through jobs and reduce the deficit by decreasing expenditures.

How to increase jobs? Reverse Tax breaks for corporations off shoring jobs and give tax breaks for jobs created in America.

How to decrease expenditures? The single biggest expenditure is the money spent on Medicare. I think everyone should be covered by a program like Medicare but I think Medicare should be allowed to bargain for the lowest prescription drug prices and the lowest possible rates for medical care based upon patient outcomes. Remove the profit the middle men take in healthcare.
