    At least Obama has a jobs plan. Romney says he has a plan, but there isn’t actually one other than Hope and cut taxes. He doesn’t even have a plan to pay for his 20% across-the-board tax cut. Is it raising taxes on the workers, or adding to the debt? It’s got to be one or the other. Romney? Anyone?

    Romney has said his tax cuts will be ‘revenue neutral’. So what’s the point? It will be revenue neutral because he wants to gut social programs like a slaughtered pig. Another give-away to the super-rich at the expense of the lower classes.

    Robme got $15 to $115 MILLION from the auto bailout. His biggest donor made over $2 BILLION from the bailout. They closed 25 of the 26 Delco (Delphi) plants and shipped them to China. 25,000 UAW workers lost their jobs. Is that why he doesn’t want us to see his 2009 tax returns?

    I do understand the difference between tax rates and tax revenues. I still don’t see where Romney’s going to pay for his tax cuts, simply because he won’t say. Ryan maintains it’s revenue-neutral. When asked how by Chris Wallace on Fox, he stated it was revenue-neutral. I’m sure we can trust him…..

    Speaking of liars….how about Ryan’s under-3-hour time in a marathon? I know it shouldn’t matter. So why would he lie about it? Maybe because a liar is so used to lying that he lies when there is no penalty for telling the truth.

    And let’s assume that Romney’s plan is revenue-neutral. This still leaves us with $16 trillion in debt. With interest, this will grow. So, even if it’s revenue-neutral, it has no value.

    Yes, it’s revenue neutral. But you’ll have to elect us to find out how.

    In the meantime, trust us.

    Romney wants to cut tax rates which cuts revenue.

    So lowering from 35% to 25% is adding in your mind?

    “Revenue neutral” is code for the debt will continue to grow, and U.S. jobs will continue to go overseas as the “Bain bunch” continue to profit, untaxed.

    The sure fire way for Obama to win is to endorse Mitt Romney. Then all of the GOP and TEA Party would predictably say no and do the opposite.

    That binder is a lot thinner since Obama took over.

    With a President who truly “Leads” the congress can be persuaded by the Voters decision on Nov.6th to work with Romney and Ryan to construct a tax reform that reduces tax rates and carefully removes enough deductions and exemptions and credits from the higher income brackets to make sure the next year’s tax revenue is “Neutral”….staying at the same amount of “tax due” as when the old rules applied.
    it is a matter of using their God-given brains to simplify IRS rules and adjust rates downward to give incentives to people with wealth to stop sitting on parked assets and to invest in expanding businesses and creating new JOBS. It worked for Reagan & the democratic congress in the 1980s, and it worked for JFK in the 1960s. It can and must work for Romney in 2013, hopefully with some new red blooded GOP in congress to help do it correctly, and restrain the democrats from trying to fill the House and Senate with bills to UN-do the reform, and complicate the IRS code all over again.

    This cartoon does put the focus of this debate on one of the many very issues deserving it. I know the dems were not graceful in their 2008 victory and that arrogance deterred cooperation from the Republican from the start. However, the words of McConnell, the Norquist pledge, filibusters by Republican senators, and more have convinced me there was never a good faith plan by the norquist conservatives to work with this President even when he was promoting ideas first offered by Republicans. Republicans who did try to support the administration have been removed in the 2010 election and others withdrew from the 2012 election because the RNC wouldn’t support moderate Republicans. Those who blame Obama for this fiasco is allowing alot of ppl who are guilty by “disassociation” who added to the how slow this recovery has been.

    Obama’s oval Office is full of “Binders of Failure”

    How about this for a novel idea Arod.

    We cut spending. It doesn’t increase the debt or the taxes.

    Right now we are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar spent. Seems to me a 40 percent spending cut would be a good way to reduce the annual deficit to zero. And if we actually spent less than we take in, we can reduce the 16.1 trillion dollars we currently owe.

    You think that might work? Or will you scream like a stuck pig as your cash cow of government spending dries up?

    Cutting the tax rates actually increases the total revenue into the government. It works every time it is tried.

    Now how about if we stop borrowing 40 cents of every dollar spent by the feds? Imagine cutting spending to the point where it is actually less than what we take in in taxes. THAT is how we get rid of the federal debt.
