Don;t see how you miss the point entirely, but I'll try to help.

Mitt Romney is part of the problem. Giant tax breaks for corporations which outsource is an economic cancer.


Romney hasn't had any power to be the problem. Obama has been in charge since 009 and he's the problem. The man has no idea what he's doing. He's never even had a real job outside of activism. God forbid we elect someone who knows something about business!

Anyway, it is hilarious how this smear keeps on going thanks to the MSM (Obama re-election campaign) and Democrats who for some reason get the benefit of the doubt when they make baseless charges.

If you owe no tax then paying nothing is paying your taxes.

As far as 46% paying no tax, most of those do not make any where near the money Mitt makes. Given how little corps making billions pay, I would not be surprised if he did not owe much if any.

I doubt if people making 20K to 40K can off shore much in savings.

The fact that you think 1 guy is the problem is in fact this country's problem.

No problem in this country is due to one man. It must be nice to blame 1 person though.

This forum, the MSM and Democrats set the standard during the last president. Why am I not surprised you want a rule change?

The unsubstantiated allegation about Romney’s taxes was based on what Reid described as the recollection of an unnamed Bain investor.

Reid admitted he did not know if the claim was true, but aired it anyway

You should be ashamed for even repeating this lie.




Ashamed? Hardly... There's so much money diverted/ laundered outside of normal channels this is effectively subterfuge for filth to stretch their lead. It's the cheating off our middle class/ poor brackets until eventually they don't step on the field.


In other words... Game Over Man.

Wow. That FB post is priceless. The surest way to gauge one's level of knowledge and intelligence to ask if he or she is a Tea Party member. If he answers, "Yes," you know you are dealing with someone completely unable to separate lies from facts and hopelessly or to understand the distinction between an opinion and a fact. That person will answer EVERY policy question with a sound bite from FOX or Rush because she is incapable in independent critical thinking.

Its amazing that anybody would think about voting for Romney. Yes its true Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years. And why is it that Obama has released all his taxes. I guess this proves Obama is transparent and Romney has something to hide.

Also all of us Americans are wondering why Romney has not released his long form birth certificate.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that Mittens broke the 'law' or failed to pay taxes. Everyone in his corner says the same thing, 'he paid what the law says he owed'. GE paid what they owed based on the 'law', that is, they paid nothing. And Corning even got refunds despite making $3B in profits... cause that is what the 'law' said they owed (or didn't). So if Mittens didn't pay any taxes or a paltry 13.9% on his wealth then that is what the 'law' says he owed. See why it's good to play in the big leagues? I wish I only had to pay 13.9% on my income.

That's perhaps the greatest myth out there. Romney is no business pro. He is an investor who started his gig with his dad's money and connections. I'd love to see Romney try to run the dry cleaners down the street, the deli in the shopping center nearby or the local hardware store. The man is no business ace. His instincts suck and he has the charisma of greased rock. ...All of that has been on clear display overseas.

Romnet has one talent, and that's saying anything he needs to to win votes. Fortunately for him, he is free to lie to his core voters, who are so informed and lazy they don't bother to learn that EVERY position he has taken this election is 180 degrees opposite from positions he has stated that are recorded all over YouTube. The man's a liar with zero convictions, not even his own faith since he has no balls to defend it and tries to pretend it does not exist.

See just a few here: www.mittvmitt.com...
Even on the subject of blind trusts that recently came up about his investments and outsourcing. he says since he's been in politics he put his investments in a blind trust, so if that the trustee invests in companies that outsource, he can't be considered responsible. Yet.....www.youtube.com...

All this stuff should, all this outright 180 degree lies and pandering should not earn your vote. The man is the greatest fraud every to run under the Republican brand. Reagan -- a man of REAL balls and conviction (whether you agreed with him or not) -- is surely rolling in his grave.

No one is accusing Romney of breaking the law. He avoided paying any taxes through carefully structured tax havens and write-offs. It's perfectly LEGAL to avoid paying a tax. What it illegal is EVADING a tax you are legally obligated to pay.

What Mitt Romney's tax return shows is that the system is heavily gamed by the wealthiest Americans who can shelter their money, use offshore tax havens, and all sorts of tax write-offs to get away with paying nothing in income taxes.

If everyone did this America would cease to exist. I'm sure there are plenty on this site who would love to see that happen.

Instead of paying their FAIR share in taxes to support things like our infrastructure and the American society, the wealthiest have used their money instead to influence and corrupt the government to further game the system in their favor. More and more power and influence is being placed in the hands of fewer and fewer titans, while the rest of the American population slides further and further down the economic scale.

What were you trying to imply with our Nation again?

crooksandliars.com...

Highlights:


Romney's family came from England, converted to Mormonism, came to America and quickly turned to plural marriage which led them to an unexpected exile and exodus to Mexico and then just as abruptly, they fled back to the USA to avoid a revolution.



They had just twenty-five dollars, two suitcases and three bedrolls. Many families were installed in vacant tenements and several hundred were quartered in huge empty lumber sheds on Magoffin Avenue which the Long Lumber Company made available. The U.S. Army supplied rations and loaned tents from Fort Bliss. Mayor C. E. Kelly and city officials joined Church leaders in finding homes and jobs for the refugees. Congress voted $100,000 for their transportation and relief. If you calculate $100,000 for inflation from 1912, the figure turns into over $2.2 million in 2011. That's a lot of government money to people who were basically felons in the eyes of the law. Another fascinating thing happened in 1938. Mexico paid out a huge settlement to those early Mexican colonies because of the revolution. (pg.61) The colonists eventually in 1938 received from Mexico $2.65 for each $100 of loss during the revolutionary disorders. Gaskell Romney's losses were so great that he received enough to purchase a comfortable house in Salt Lake City in which he lived his last years. It's odd that Mexico would repay monies to the Mormon polygamists after so many years, but one can still make the case that the Romney family was even funded in some part by the Mexican government. To get an idea of how vast the Romney family was because of its polygamist past, in 1922, George Romney had roughly 165 first cousins. (pg.68)


Made


And that's very good news indeed for the Romney clan. After all, if their patriarch gets his way as President, the estate tax will be eliminated. That means a potential $80 million windfall for the next generation of Romneys, courtesy of all other American taxpayers who will have to make up the shortfall. And as it turns out, that payday from the U.S. Treasury will more than offset the $45 million of his own money Mitt burned through during his first run for President.



With President Romney zeroing out the estate tax, those 17 grandchildren would get a golden shower when their grandparents Mitt and Ann leave the scene. Their payday courtesy of all other American taxpayers could reach $84,000,000 (35 percent of $240 million).

Romney also has Mexican heritage.

While Obama has proven to be born in Hawaii and a pure blood American. Romney's dad has been proven to be born in Mexico and tried to run for President.

Romney is hiding his taxes because he did not pay them. This is bad news for the Obama haters

Actually, I'm not wondering that. I'm just wondering why the Birthers aren't making a big stink about it...well, actually I'm not wondering that either, I know why, but I do like to point out the hypocrisy of it.

Wow......when was Obama's father American? 100% American blood...ha ha ha ha.

Romney's father was born to 2 American citizen's so you fail on that one.

Unless it's true that the Kenyan wasn't O's father....is that what you are saying? hmmmm?

And the money he made in the last 10 years was all interest so Economics 101....he paid taxes on the original money and taxes again on the investments which are taxed at a lower rate than income tax...so you fail again.

He took no salary while he was governor.

Just Wow.

These people will block everything Obama does just to see him fail, which negatively affects thousands of other people (just to see him fail), and now these, selfish hate-filled degenerates threaten to shut down their business if he is elected, which likely puts many more Americans out of jobs...just because he is re-elected??

These people have their priorities all bassackwards, and the well-being of the country or of the people is certainly not high on the list, if they will sacrifice and sabotage so many vital things to get him out, see him fail, and ensure he is not re-elected.



Sickening.

ETA:

I am NOT surprised if this turns out to be true, him paying not taxes.

And to the person who said 46% pay no taxes...that's because most are likely on or below the poverty line....they aren't freakin' millionaires hustling the system! Come off it

Harry Reid: Bain Investor Told Me That Mitt Romney 'Didn't Pay Any Taxes For 10 Years'



WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has what he says is an informed explanation for why Mitt Romney refuses to release additional tax returns. According a Bain investor, Reid charged, Romney didn't pay any taxes for 10 years.



Source

Guess it's all hearsay for now...



Romney recently told ABC News that he couldn't recall if there were years when he paid below the 13.9 percent tax rate that he paid in 2010. Although he said he was "happy to go back and look," his campaign declined to do just that.

I want the man to be honest just as any other public figure should be; but given this is coming from Senator Reid, I am not sure how much weight should be given to this "claim". Hearsay is all it is...

And with a sentence like this "According a Bain investor, Reid charged, Romney didn't pay any taxes for 10 years.", I am not sure how much faith I would put into the reporting either.
