How can he even say this with a straight face?

Romney: "Vote for me, I have a tax plan that will cut everyone's taxes and balance the budget!"
everyone else: "That sounds a little, uh... funny, how does this plan work?"
Romney: "I can't give you the details but I can tell you that it's a secret I gained from reading sacred plates sent by God"
everyone else: "Uh...OK.... um, can we see the plates then?"
Romney: "No"

Yep, it's totally the Left's fault that they can't tell us of their secret plan that requires a decoder ring to decipher.

Goddammit my bullshiat meter just exploded.

Also, in case anyone wants to know the real reason, it's that he can't possibly keep his tax promises. To close the loopholes and lower taxes without reducing income, he has to have a net increase in middle class taxes. Based on what little information he's given, there is no other possible solution.
 
2012-09-19 10:47:33 AM
Why don't Romney and Ryan just quit?

I mean, this must be embarrassing for them.

Yup. And he knows what will happen if his plan is revealed before the election: even less hope of winning than he already has.

Question: "Is there a reason you guys aren't naming specific tax loopholes?""
Answer (in part): "We want to do this in front, in the public,"

Am I missing something? Shouldn't that be the answer to "Is there a reason you guys are naming specific tax loopholes?"

So, Paul, what's stopping you from having that discussion with Congressional Democrats now? You are a not only a Congressman, but the House Republican's official budget wonk. Why isn't the budget plan you proposed already a compromise with the Democrats?
 
2012-09-19 12:04:23 PM
It's the same DOA Ryan nonsense that House Republicans have been trying to get through for a couple of years now. Who is he kidding?

Hey, Pauly- Pull the other one. It has bells on it.
 
2012-09-19 12:04:29 PM
Staying with the uncanny relationship between the Romney/Ryan campaign and Caddyshack, I'm sure the dialog with congressional Democrats would be something on the order of: "You'll get nothing and like it!"

2012-09-19 12:05:30 PM
Wait, so Paul Ryan can't announce the Romney/Ryan tax plan because... Republicans really want to compromise with their Congressional opponents? Sounds legit to us.

Of COURSE it sounds legit. To reveal their tax plan as being a "compromise" with Democrats would ...well, I guess their base will vote for them no matter what, but still. But, you just have to look at how the freshmen Republicans in the House freaked the f*ck out at even the MENTION of a compromise on the debt issue.

Of COURSE Romney and Ryan are going to keep mum about it.

I've seen analysis of RobMe's tax promise that says he'd have to eliminate both the mortgage deduction AND the dependent deduction from everyone's income taxes to even come close, and of course both of those are used by the middle class more than anyone else.

I think the GOP is aware of this, and are just going to give it the ol' college try. They'll get their A-game on come 2016.

Philip Francis Queeg: So, Paul, what's stopping you from having that discussion with Congressional Democrats now? You are a not only a Congressman, but the House Republican's official budget wonk. Why isn't the budget plan you proposed already a compromise with the Democrats?


Yeah, there's a void where that followup question should be. It's not like they need to wait in order to compromise and hash out a budget deal that's acceptable to both parties. In fact, it's sort of the main reason why Congress exists, and they have a chance every year, regardless of whether or not Mitt Romney is president. Even if you take Ryan's statement in good faith, you can fill in some of the blanks on what Democrats are going to want: tax increases on high income earners and defense cuts. The Democratic budget platform isn't some wacky chameleon where no assumptions can be made of what it will look like on any given day.

Furthermore, isn't that sort of philosophy - gasp - "leading from behind?"

I don't know how I would feel about a president who waited for others to dictate his policies.
 
2012-09-19 12:12:52 PM
So Ryan says he wants a constructive dialogue with the opposition so a workable and passable plan can be implemented in a bipartisan way? This instead of empty and divisive political rhetoric?

History's greatest monster.

Paul Ryan was nearly drafted in he first round by the Milwaukee Brewers. This was at the same time Ryan was actively reading the works of Ayn Rand. When a Brewers scout came to one of his games and asked if he planned on going to College or going pro, Ryan told him he was going into Politics and wanted to change the world. He then turned down full academic scholarships to Harvard, Princeton and Yale and paid his own way to an out of state institution that was not party to grade inflation. He did it for the challenge.

Why should he care if the Republicans are going to take the Senate and keep the House.

And the first step to starting that dialogue is apparently for his side to completely and utterly shut the fark up.

Romney/Ryan: What's our tax plan? Let's just say we have a few ideas up our sleeve.
Public: Like What?
Romney/Ryan: Uh...We'd rather not say.
Public: Why not?
Romney/Ryan: All right, we don't have any ideas, OK? We've got nothing. Happy?
Public: No. Amused, though.

Public: Yes, I guess I should be -- [notes entire kitchen is on fire] Good Lord, what is happening in there?
Romney: Aurora Borealis?
Public: Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? A this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?
Romney: Yes.
Public: May I see it?
Romney: Oh, erm... No.
Republicans: [offscreen] Seymour! The house is on fire!
Romney: No, mother. It's just the Northern Lights.
 
2012-09-19 12:29:49 PM
They can't put out a good tax plan because then Dems will hold them to it.
You go into negotiations asking for more than you will settle for.

Still a b.s. cop out. They would disenfranchise most of the voters they have left if they revealed their "plan".
