LOL krazen. I guess I'm a likely Romney voter.

Certainly you are voting against your own interests if you are otherwise.

Social Security is now set to run out of money in 2033. Sorry to be you I suppose!

Romney's promised increases in defense and tax cuts at the upper brackets will contribute greatly to Social Security's stability.

You haven't heard the good news that cutting my taxes creates jobs? Mittens shouldn't talk much about foreign policy with the youngs actually.  He should just do that with that old former warrior Clarence in a soundproof room.  Tongue
Government can create a lot more jobs than you can as evidenced by the stimulus bill - it takes government $400,000 for one job, but how many millions does it take for Torie to create a job?

Torie's assistant earns more than $400,000, maybe even millions? Is Torie actually Steven Spielberg incognito?
No, but not every Torie will hire an assistant or contribute to the economy at all with the taxcut.

What do you think people do with their tax cuts? Withdraw it in the form of cash, and stuff it under a mattress to do nothing? No, of course not. People use their income to consume and/or invest overseas or in some other place that won't positively effect the economy. All else equal, this generally leads to further production/consumption, and economic/employment growth.

Also Torie's assistant wont create infrastructure, or give a payroll taxcut to the poors.

Torie's assistant won't pay taxes to be used on infrastructure? Torie's assistant won't possibly donate to charities that help the poor?

By the way, what grand infrastructure projects have been created as a result of the Obama Stimulus? Do you think Solyandra is infrastructure? Do you think giving away billions to go unaccounted for at the state level (Thanks California/Illinois) is infrastructure?

Our infrastructure is not being rebuilt. Freeways are in rough shape across the nation. It seems to me, and many others, that tax dollars nowadays are mostly being wasted by overpaid bureaucrats whether we are talking about their salaries or the allocation of resources by them. Europe is proving that this shell game cannot go on forever.

There's a reason why America is the best. Some people want us to wither into a wimpy shade of our former self. Others like myself want America to continue being the best.
And you expect Romney to fix that with... tax cuts?
This looks like another thread that will have to be bumped in the future.

You do realize that in order to invest in a particular nation abroad you generally have to trade American dollars for the foreign country's unit of currency, right? And do you know what happens to those American dollars you exchanged? Hint: Foreigners do something with them (No, they do not request cash to eat and light fires with)

As for the point about Romney's tax cuts, nobody said Romney is ONLY going to do tax cuts. Don't worry: Under the Romney Administration, bureaucratic apparatuses will either be useful and efficient, or they will be terminated. That's how Mitt rolls. If a federal worker does not like it, they can hit the bricks.

Hopefully things will go well, and a revitalization of Eisenhower's Interstate dream can take place. Freeways ought to be taken care of before the end of the decade if possible. They are a key part of our infrastructure, something that markets do not provide adequately, and they are starting to fall apart. So much for Barack's stimulus package remedying the situation...

The paul ryan plan does an excellent job of reducing medicare and medicaid spending.

I strongly encourage Romney to campaign heavily on the Paul Ryan plan, which cuts medicare and medicaid spending by decree (we will cut x%, and cut everything else by 80%) without explaining how that would happen or would translate into changes policies. But if Romney wants to lose the one age group he's guaranteed to win against Obama, running on cutting Medicare would be helpful, which is why he's not going to do it.

Certainly Medicare and Medicaid are programs where youngs and poors have to pay more and more tax while the the far wealthier Tories collect more and more benefits.

One very smart commentator correctly described Medicare as a transfer program from black males to white females.


It's very prudent for Romney to correctly strike a balance where he can compete for the votes of non-basement dwelling 25 year olds while still retaining a landslide majority of seniors.

I would wager that Obama does very well among the under 30 year olds with no children who have a job and what not. Think the existing CA 53.

A question asked of Republican presidential candidates: if Democrats offered you a compromise that entailed $10 in spending cuts for $1 in tax [rate] increases, raise your hand if you would reject it outright.

Fixed!  Smiley

No, not fixed.  The original was correct.  See transcript:
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/08/ames-debate-romney-bachmann-paul-huntsman-santorum-gingrich-pawlenty-cain.html

In particular:
Quote
YORK:  Well, Senator, here you are. The deficit cutting super committee is now getting to work. 
Democrats will demand that savings come from a combination of spending cuts and tax increases, maybe $3 in cuts for every $1 in higher taxes. Is there any ratio of cuts to taxes that you would accept?
Three to one? Four to one? Or even 10 to one?

The Republican party is officially nuts. The sad thing is that if they asked the same question to Democrats with the parties reversed, the Evan Bayhs and the like would raise their hand.
