Just because I'm curious, in what sort of scenario would someone be paying a payroll tax but not an income tax?
 
2012-09-18 03:50:11 PM  
God, the campaign ads just write themselves.

Elderly white woman: I did not pay any federal income taxes last year because I live on my Social Security income of $1,400 a month. I am in MItt Romney's 47%

Elderly white veteran male
(preferably disabled): I fought in Vietnam while Mitt Romney was in Paris. I am dependent on the government for the VA healthcare. I am in MItt Romney's 47%

Student (of color): I am taking out federal loans to go to college because my parents are too poor to pay for it. I am in MItt Romney's 47%

Late 40s male steelworker: I did not pay any federal income taxes because Bain Capital outsourced my job that I had for 20 years, and closed my factory, even though we were doing well before they got involved. I am in MItt Romney's 47%

ALL (panning from one to another): Mitt Romney does not want to be my president. This November, I will go to the polls and make sure he gets his wish.

Aww... so close. Had to invalidate your statement with the VERY LAST WORD!

No one that uses the word "lib" (especially as an attempted put down) deserves to have their opinion count.. ever.

41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'
44"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'
45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'

I'm sure pissing off the older Americans is a good strategy. The only way you could get them to hate you more is if you wanted to somehow effect their Medicare.

But what morons would be dumb enough to do that?

Damned poor, elderly, and children mooching off of the gov't.

When will Old Man Thompson and Little Timmy start paying their fair share so Mittens can.... I dunno, get another chateau.

Thank god we have Obama who's been coming down hard on these banks and corporations...

Oh wait.

You'd think Romney would want to be more careful about calling America's Senior Citizens a bunch of lazy, shiftless freeloaders.
 
2012-09-18 03:52:13 PM  
Is Mitt Romney in that 0.6% of people with incomes over $100k who don't pay income taxes?

We'll never know unless Mitt releases his tax returns. Mitt Romney may be just the sort of person Mitt Romney's presidency is concerned with - taking money from the Treasury in the form of tax breaks and credits (that go to the freeloading Mitt Romneys of the country), and not giving back in any measure compared to what someone like Mitt Romney, Job Creator puts in.

Mitt Romney: I believe in the sort of America that millions of people that don't pay taxes undermine by being the Americans I don't believe in.

The utter audacity of a man who most likely pays at least one accountant a large amount of money to minimize his tax liability calling people who take advantage of the EITC, child tax credits, and mortgage deductions is farking staggering.

This one is better because it shows that the people who are getting "entitlements" are actually entitled to them. Most of us have paid into them, including the elderly who aren't currently paying but did through their whole lives. 

That's the biggest bullshiat to me about Romney's statements. An entitlement is something you actually deserve, there's nothing wrong with taking advantage of a program you paid into. And he didn't misspeak either, this is the belief with many Republicans, "How dare you get what you paid for!?"
