(The National Memo)   Mitt promises 12 million new jobs, eliminate the deficit, & lower taxes. Wall Street investor does the math: "At a 25 percent Federal tax rate on all the new income, the average new job would have to pay a mere $433,333 per year to fill the gap"   (nationalmemo.com) divider line 49

gremzo: ddam: meat0918: Corvus: nevirus: Yeah, but you did the math without including Romney's super-secret numbers that make it all revenue-neutral and add jobs and bring down the deficit.

Even if you don't do the math. If it's not going to be a tax cut because the deductions are in theory going to balance it out how is it going to help anyone?? We might have a simpler tax code but if what Romney is saying is true (which I think is not true, I think he plans to shift the tax burden to the middle and poor classes he is just using this as the pretext) then it won't save anyone one penny on their taxes.

And another thing.

Didn't Romney say he would lower the rate while closing loopholes, and then claim no one had ever done that before?

Isn't that exactly what Reagan did???

Reagan also had balance budgets and the national deficit was $0 when he left office.


umm... Really? because this chart says otherwise.

I linked Snopes for clarification on who actually said it. I got this in response, a few replies after his friends were circle-jerking each other over the evils of "liberals":

"I hate it when people hide behind snopes/APfactcheck/etc. Does it make them feel better that they can provide a link to disprove/discredit something else? These are wise words regardless."

Translation: "I hate when people use facts to show that I'm wrong about what I believe in. Rather than educate myself and learn what my ideology stands for, I'd rather circle-jerk\echo chamber my friends on Facebook because nothing says intellectualism like reading and hearing what I already believed in."

I'm sure you guys knew this, though.


Reminds me of a facebook conversation that was going around a few years back. The Boobieser said something about how the earth would freeze if it were one foot further, and burn if it were one foot closer to the sun. Then followed it with something about how God is so amazing that he can do that. A couple people started circle-jerking about how awesome God is to plan the earth's orbit like that. Then some guy broke stroke and told them about how the earth's path is an elliptical orbit, and how many tens of thousands of miles difference the major and minor axis are from each other, and how that's why we have colder winters in the northern hemisphere and warmer summers in the southern. The original poster started cursing about how nobody asked his opinion and how he better not say that he's wrong again. It was complete with f-bombs and exclamation points, solidifying that this person was indeed a Christian.

MyRandomName: Mrtraveler01: MyRandomName: I was unaware the only tax revenue available was income tax. Could have sworn increased income increases purchases, increases corporate taxes, etc.

Can you answer this for me:

How much would the economy have to grow in order to make Romney's plan to reduce tax rates and reduce deductions revenue neutral?

Zero. Many analysts [weasel words] have shown what a piece of shiat[Contentious Labels] the tax policy center analysis was. It assumed zero GDP growth, discounted all changes to corporate deductions, ignored bond interest writeoffs which can account for half of their deficit. The report basically was an analysis of their retarded assumptions on what Romney bwver put forth. Will link in a few a 3 step example. The tax report was garbage.[Editorializing] The fact they rescinded their original numbers from 86 to 41 billion aafter the aei analysis shows that.

Mitt Romney will slash government income (from taxes);
Mitt Romeny will vastly increase government expenditure to create 12,000,000 jobs that the private sector can't be arsed to create now despite record profits and massive piles of cash in hand despite low, low taxes (often sub-zero) and interest rates (sub-zero);
Mitt Romney will then magically balance the budget by adding a string of giant red minuses until they turn into black pluses.

Also, it will rain doughnuts and your sisters-in-law have a funeral today.

I assume that the world's top magicians will be hired as cabinet ministers for $1 a year.

Hello, I'm Mitt Romney.

I know some of you are saying that I lack charisma. Even so, I'd ask that you remember that I'm not blah, if you know what I mean.

Some others say that I'm out of touch, far away from the common man. But really, that just shows that I'm not near, if you follow me.

And perhaps my claims and figures are unrealistic. But I vow that when I'm president, I won't monkey around. I'm no monkey, is all I'm trying to say.

So, anyway, may the best man win. I know you'll make the right choice next month. See you at the racists!

Corvus: The derp squad will be in here in a sec to try to pretend this is wrong, but the thing that needs to be focused on is this:

Never mind that there's a problem lowering the top tax rate to 28 percent from 35 percent, which will cost $250 billion in revenues. Plugging that hole by taking away the $165 billion in deductions used by top earners simply doesn't work.

If taking away the deduction from the rich doesn't pay for this rate cut WHO WILL PAY THE DIFFERENCE?

The middle class, that's who!!!


No no no.

It will come from the magical revenue that will pour down on us like manna from heaven, once the job creators are unshackled from their onerous tax burden.

Mrtraveler01: Corvus: The middle class, that's who!!!

But I've been reassured by the Fark Independents and the Romney campaign is that it will be revenue neutral because the economy will magically grow fast enough to help offset the loss in revenue from these tax cuts.

/Yes, I know this is a stupid thing to think but this is honestly the right-wing talking point about Romney's tax plan


A budget that is revenue neutral compared to our previous year's budget will never reduce the deficit and will never balance the budget. We have been in a recession for a while now, remember? Romney is a cynical liar.
