"Paul Ryan lives in a house overseen by the National Park Service, which means that he qualifies for a 20% investment tax credit for the house he lives in. Of course, his 'budget' would largely decimate the NPS, but that would be only those parts of it enjoyed by other people." (esquire.com)

Nothing is stopping you from investing your money into the stock market and taking the same route as Mitt Romney. Paul Ryan's plan benefits all stock investors, and it makes sense why we should do that: it incentives the working class to put their savings into the stock market instead of the failing banks. That eight figure income is Romney's income and it has little do with Ryan's tax proposal. Romney is a bystander. He benefits just like you would. Romney gave over 15% of his income in 2010 to charity and the bible states that when you give your money away, it will come back to you in even greater amounts.

I honestly can't figure out what in the hell Romney was thinking of when he selected Ryan as his running mate. this is only the first of many articles that will only bring Romney's vast riches into focus. which is exactly what Romney and the Republicans don't want to happen.

Weaver95: I honestly can't figure out what in the hell Romney was thinking of when he selected Ryan as his running mate


That's easy. Ryan is a big policy wonk. He doesn't have personal baggage. The entire Romney campaign at this point is personal baggage. And I think these people are deluded enough to think their policy actually is liked by people.
 
2012-08-11 11:10:56 PM
Remember a while back when I said Romney didn't really want to be President? Yeah. Picking Paul Ryan was yet another sign that he doesn't really want the job, he just likes campaigning (even though he sucks at it) and talking about being President. It takes too much work/effort to be President, and Romney's never done an honest day's work in his entire farking life. He was born into money, lives in money, will die in money, and his kids were born into money....sunrise, sunset.

Besides, doesn't he know that the President doesn't pull down the amount of money per year that he does right now? It would be a huge step down for him, I don't know how he'd show his face around Rafalca again, provided it hasn't been sent to the glue factory already.

you mean the Ryan budget isn't personal baggage? dear god - he almost got his ass excommunicated from the Catholic Church over his gotdamn budget.

Romney's been trying like hell to dodge the tax issue and NOT to be seen as an out of touch rich guy stumbling around like a fool. so what does he do? gets Ryan, an Ayn Rand cultist with a penchant for lowering taxes on rich people and a rep for screwing over the poor and middle class, to be his running mate. Thus ensuring that damn near everyone is going to be focusing right back on Romney's 'out of touch rich guy' image and making Romney's taxes once again the focus.

oh, and not to mention the fact that the Ryan announcement was ill timed all around and looked rather shabby to boot.

It's completely policy. No I don't consider that personal baggage in the slightest. Just because you don't like it doesn't make it personal baggage. Ryan is pure policy. That's why they took him.

out of curiosity, who do you think might have been a good choice?
I'm having trouble thinking of anyone who might fit the bill. Maybe Lisa Murkowski, but the bad taste of Alaska from the last election wouldn't help.

Still, could be worse. He could have picked Rick Perry.

ignite ice: *mindbogglingly stupid comment*


Not sure if Poe's Law, or just stupid, but I'll play along.

I have a an actual job, unlike Mitt Romney, that means that I actually provide a service to the economy, unlike Mitt Romney. It also means that my income is automatically taxed by payroll, SS, and income tax with a top marginal rate of 25%. This means that even if I invested all of my money (including money I would normally have used for things like food, shelter, and clothing) I still couldn't reach Romney's tax rate because I work for a living.

Similarly, you want people investing in banks, not the stock market. Banks lend money to people to start businesses, you know, the actual "trickle down" part of "trickle down economics." The stock market can multiply your money faster than a bank (because it's less secure) but a bank helps the economy through the multiplier effect (they can loan the same dollar multiple times via leveraging). As long as banks aren't trying to multiply their own money though the stock market and over-leveraging (you know, what Glass-Steagall was about) banks are really good for the economy. In this country we've just stacked it so that we reward money-multiplying investment more than labor and economy-driving investment.

So yeah, either 8/10 for trolling, or wow, I don't know how you manage to think like that.

How about tax law be completely redone? Set up a simple tax code that can't be reduced, subsidized, or other method of cutting taxes. All that farking paper work is such a drain. Make it so that whatever a person has to go through just to get lower taxes for filling out form, is already done.

They can think of something silly (not to be taken seriously), like this:

A person should automatically keep 75% of whatever the earn, regardless. The remaining 25% should be taxed into brackets.

Simply put: You earn 50,000 - You keep 37,500 of it.
The government tosses you into a tax bracket in X level associated with 12,500. That bracket takes into account marital status, offspring, and other factors associated with their living area, city, state, and environmental disasters that may have occurred.
You have the choice of putting more into the government that will be paid back to you at some level of interest.
If you have a disaster at your premises or some life altering situation, that is provable, you can pay half of the taxes owed. If used, this cannot be used within a five year span.
You're taxed based on the 25% of what is owed. You keep any remaining %.

I propose instead that any money you earn under $50,000/yr should have no federal withholding of any kind, and that tax brackets above $50,000/yr should be adjusted to cover whatever shortfall that causes, using the reagan-era tax rates to set the ratios.
