    From Harvey Rosen:

    "I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work.  It might be that they assume that Governor Romney wants to keep the taxes from the Affordable Care Act in place, despite the fact that the Governor has called for its complete repeal.  The main conclusion of my study is that  under plausible assumptions, a proposal along the lines suggested by Governor Romney can both be revenue neutral and keep the net tax burden on taxpayers with incomes above $200,000 about the same.  That is, an increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral."

      I'm beginning to detect a pattern.

      Romney lies.
      Obama lies.
      Romney backpedals.
      Obama backpedals.
      Romney lies.
      Obama lies.

      And all the while, America suffers.

      Go Politics!

      Wow....So most of agree that both candidates are capable of inaccuracies to be politically correct. Politicians are lawyers so what do we expect. We can only hope the lawyer doesn't sell out our interest in a back room deal with the defendant and throw our case, which by the way happens more than you know.
      Now the dilemma at hand is which liar shall we choose....the one who exhibits the least "inaccuracies" while advancing their self serving agenda's,   and which one will "Lie and make us like it",  toss our liberties under the bus to advance a radical social economic ideology.   Our vote is simple Obama for social economic revolution and wealth redistribution. Or Romney,Capitalistt extroidinare with enhanced capitalist  specialization in creating wealth for himself along with  investors of the American dream. And believes that a Society is strongest when people are allowed to create their own wealth, pay fair taxes, give it away and spend it in any legal manor they see fit; while providing a safety net for those truly unable to have a dignified existence. And providing the means and opportunity for those wishing to break the bonds of enslavement to welfare to be able to.
