    I must have missed the part where he said he was for “more tax breaks for the rich”.

    Just an outright lie, but the sheep will drink it up.

    Yes, I know that here is more to the story overall, but this strip makes a good point, doesn’t it? After all, all his supporters are affronted that they aren’t going to get what they want, especially after the massive investment.
    Never before in the course of Politics has so much been owed to so few.

    Tax breaks aren’t free, they paid plenty to get them, of course, they saved many time more, so good investment.

    That was back during the primaries.
    Back when the Republican slogan was,
    ANYONE but Mitt!”

    A lawyer appeared on the Colbert Report, a comedy “news” show, and showed how people with a superpac can make the money disappear. It was impressive how superpacs can make money totally disappear from tax rolls and ‘sight’ until the manager of the superpac chooses to use it. It’s like the stories we used to hear about people putting their money in mattresses. This is a step up from that, or a step down. The money gets no interest, is not invested, it is just in a “box” waiting to be used. That is not how capitalism is supposed to work.

    I would suggest not calling this “an outright lie” when you weren’t paying attention. Romney supported the Ryan budget, which decreased taxes on capital gains (Romney’s main source of income) to virtually zero. The GOP platform said, quite clearly, “Extend the 2001 and 2003 tax relief packages-commonly known as the Bush tax cuts-pending reform of the tax code” and “end the Death Tax,” both of which hugely favored the rich. You can look it up.
    You also ignored the fact that Romney himself got the loophole established that enabled his money from Bain to be taxed at a lower rate — much lower than he actually paid last year, in fact; he overpaid and STILL got up to only 15%.
    Since this is not only true but easily found, you might want to ask yourself a few questions.

    I saw that Colbert Report, too. Imagine the millions of dollars that will go untaxed that way, but if you don’t file a 1099 you could go to one of the privitized prisons to fill their quota.
    BTW I record he rerun of the Daily Show and Colbert Report so I am usually 2 days behind in keeping up with the honest news.

    I voted for Obama and I still have not received my free gift.

    People have always voted for Santa Claus. Mondale sunk his presidential bid when he told the American public the truth: taxes had to be raised to neutralize Reagan’s deficit spending. Reagan was Santa that time: he DIDN’T tell the truth, won the election, and then raised taxes.

    The only question in the past election was which Santa we wanted.

    Romney just wanted to give “free stuff” to the rich.

    I received my free gift.
    The political ads on tv and radio are gone. The several political phone calls a day stopped, and my mailbox no longer has 2-5 political flyers in each mail delivery.
    JUST what I wanted.

    The cartoon is very true — if you’re going to complain about liberal “gifts” (and by the way, Romney lied on almost every one of them — contraceptives won’t be “free,” health insurance won’t be “free,” you get to buy it from private companies), you need to complain about gifts to the rich as well (eliminating the estate and capital gains taxes and reducing marginal rates 20% on all non-payroll taxes were all huge, unfunded gifts that benefit the rich).

    It is immoral to enkoy, statutes are being drawn up as we speak to end this evil.

    Okay, individuals are smarter than the government, so I say No Taxes and No Government!!! Look, there are lots of countries out there with no government, and they do fine. Don’t they?

    You likely won’t either since it was a fantasy dreamed up by the losing party in the presidential race of 2012.
