    Stop kissing the super rich's asses! What is it with the Republicans get all bent out of shape when the topic of the wealthy paying their fair share in taxes? Why did Bush give them a tax break when it's obvious that they don't need it? These super rich (most inherited or got their start or their money from mommy and daddy) have no problem paying more in taxes. Even though hiking up the taxe rate and closing loopholes for the wealthy won't clear up our nation debt any time soon, it's the point. They can afford it and they're willing to pay it.

      Ummm...have you read Romney's tax reform plan? It includes closing loopholes for the very wealthy and eliminating capital gains taxes for the middle class.

        No, I just have to look at the human abuse level and people's awareness of it ,over the 1% lopsidedness, with endless sad fairy tales

        Grass root People change things , rarely politician do, I always put far more stock into the people's way of thinking. Hard to believe sometimes that politician are people too

      "Their fair share of taxes"

      Taxation is theft. The only fair share is 0.

      You mean his plan to give everyone who wants a college education the chance to have one? No thats called equality of education, it's a very good thing, its what our forefathers dreamt of. So much for logic and commoonsense.

    Yes, I've read that Romney's plan is the most extreme of all of them.

    He would cut his taxes more, and he's really upset about the death tax---that would go. His sons legacy, you know. 100 mil, tax free: Gifted. Hidden monies in Ann Romney trust fund, etc. Sneaky little stuff like that.

    Always looking for more way to help these very rich--who really have more than they would ever need. And those in need: stagnate or go down.

    Your last sentence says "they are willing to pay it." Are you sure that is what you meant?
