    [QUOTE]In Response to Romney: I’ve paid at least 13 percent tax rate in each of past 10 years : He pays 13 percent because he lives off his investments. He pays a tax on money that he has already paid taxes on when he claimed it as earned income. He's paying taxes on capital gains. You can't compare paying tax on capital gains because that money has already been taxed once and why the rate is lower then on it is on earned income. The tax rates on capital gains and earned income is totally different. What Romney has done is totally legal, if you don't like it change the law.

      When did he pay taxes the first time around.  Prove it.

    You have to be pretty stupid to believe that Romney didn't file tax forms that were totally legitmate.

    Do you think he is dumb enough to claim on national TV that he paid 13 percent if he didn't?

    The IRS would have been on him years ago.

    But then again you believe everything Obama tells you.

    Has Romney been charged by Obama's IRS as a tax cheat like Tim Geitner?

    Did I miss some news somewhere at some point in time?

      Why don't you answer the question?

      You say Mitt Romney made earned income and paid the regular income tax rate.  Then invested that money and paid capital gains on the profits.(Though you actually said he paid taxes on the money he already paid taxes on)

      Prove that Mitt Romney made his "investments" with money that he'd already paid income taxes on.

    That's not the way things work in our country.

    You falsely accuse someone of a crime and it is then their responsibility to proove their innocence? Sounds like a communist regime.

    Maybe in backwater VT they do things that way but not where I live.

    McCarthyism by Harry Reid and all the dumb democrat lemmings like yourself fall in line.

    If Harry Reid has evidence that Romney is a tax cheat he needs to produce them or shut up.

    You cannot go on the floor of the senate and slander a presidential candidate without evidence.

    Romney doesn't have to proove anything, he's not guilty of anything.

    How warped is this discussion?

    I don't have to.

    You can't prove that he cheated.

    That's not the way things work.

    You can't accuse someone of a crime without evidence to back up your claims.

    Unless you have some money to fork over in court.

    This is what is known as a witch hunt.

    Obama slime politics.

    I can accuse you of anything I like and then you have to prove your innocence.

    Maybe I'm going too fast for you.

    Here are some examples to help you understand my last point.

    A) Harry Reid accused Mitt Romney of not paying any taxes based on a discussion he had with an un-named source.

    B) If I publicly stated on national TV that you were into beastiality because an un-named friend of yours told me that he witnessed you in the act would that be fair to you?

    Note: Both cases un-named sources and no real proof.

    See the similarities? Understand my point now?

    No doubt Romney's 13 % adds up to 10's of millions of dollars going to Federal, state, & local coffers. My guess as to Obama's personal contributions toward helping his fellow citizens & blood relatives via paying taxes adds up to yet another Obama deficit.

    While I tend to agree that Cap. Gains taxes should be raised on the rich, with respect to PERSONAL income taxes on anything above ________  ($250,000?) dollars in PERSONAL INCOME, it would be counter productive to raise taxes on business earnings.  This could easily be done with cap. gains made on investment income in the stock market.  This should change!  I know it sounds like a "liberal" idea, but it is a matter of "paying your fair share" with respect to many who make fortunes in the stock market every year.  Their sole source of income, as they are living off of trust funds, & manipulating the markets, thus huge transfers of wealth from the middle class to the rich.  I know this will sound like a liberal idea, but trust me, I know.  Why should your average Joe pay almost 30% on a $45,000.00 / yr salary, while the rich pay a 10 - 15 % cap gains tax on everything they make???

    Having said that, this is an issue demagogued by the left to distract from the abysmal failure of Obama!........  More to come......

    WHY DOES THE LEFT TRY TO DISTRACT FROM THE REAL ISSUES FOR 2012???

    1) The Economy: Unemployment ^ Jobs ---
    2) U.S. Debt: Obama, "Bush Debt Immoral!" Increases Debt by $6.5 TRILLION
    * 4 more years, at same rate, $22 TRILLION (game over!)
    - Hello Greece, goodbye pensions, inflation thr the roof!
    - $800 Billion / yr in interest, Can you say "Draconian Cuts now?"
    - The country as we knew it is gone! Your kids???
    * YES! Bush spent like a drunken Democrat!
    3) WAR: Dems. / Libs call Afghanistan the good war. Obama +150,000 troops
    Both wars were ridiculous! Boneheaded!
    * I thought Dems / Liberals hated war?
    4) Energy: We near "Depression" Era economics
    Obama wants to cram green down our throats, despite the clear
    economics that call for tapping every U.S. domestic source possible.
    Responsibly! Spurring an economic boom. Obama bitterly clings to
    green, while regulating other sources to death.
    5) HCL: Obama, first 2+ years spent on HCL under the auspices that it saves us
    all big $$$. Real cost? Trillions to taxpayers. Good move
    for an economy on the brink???? Seriously????
    * 2+ full years focus on this! What else? The economy????
    6) Jobs: Worst growth since The Great Depression! Obama? More Tax &
    REGULATION! Let's push Cap & Trade? Smart?

    7) Gas Prices: See pathetic non-energy policy! De Facto tax on ALL!

    Just a few issues to consider. Add your own.

    4 more years???? Seriously???? Carter on steroids???

    THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!
    *We all know it, so stop pretending Dems.

    Bush was terrible on so many accounts! I contributed to Obama in 08

    I won't get fooled again!!! YOU???

    First: 8/14/2010
    Last: 8/19/2012
    More issues to consider....

    8) Has Obamacare lowered your insurance? Do you think it's likely that it will?
    * has it helped or hurt job creation?
    * Do you think the ultimate cost will be more or less than the projected
    Trillion $ cost. Has a gov. entitlement ever cost what it was advertised as?
    * Has a gov. entitlement ever cost less than 10 times what it was advertised?

    9) Who do you think has contributed more to state, local, federal revenues (taxes), that help Americans in need??? Obama or Romney

    10) Who do you think has created more jobs for Americans? Obama or Romney
    * Over the last 30 years?

    11) How long do you think the U.S. will be using oil?
    * Is it wise to regulate domestic production to death, thus continuing to
    depend exclusively on foreign oil?
    * Does our dependence on foreign oil lead us to war? Has it?
    * Is it likely to lead to more war / crisis in the middle east?
    * Has our dependence on middle east oil helped or hurt the U.S. in the
    region?
    * Does it make any sense to regulate to death responsible domestic drilling?
    * Is responsible domestic drilling more or less "CLEAN" than foreign drilling?
    * Do you drive a car? fly? How long do you think you will be doing so?
    * Should domestic drilling be mutually exclusive of pursuing green energy?
    * Can we walk & chew gum at the same time?
    * Would Obama's Cap & trade help or hurt the U.S. economy? Would it
    likely create any jobs? OR kill jobs?

    12) Did Obama ever propose or pass a budget when Dems owned Congress?
    * Did the one proposal get a single Dem vote?

    13) Is the Obama economic agenda helping our economy?
    * creating more jobs than lost?
    * Is it the best approach?

    14) How's that racial divide thing been?
    * Have Obama & Dems played the racial demagoguery card?
    * Has he helped the racial divide?
    * Are Biden's "they gonna put y'all back in chains," comments illustrative
    of a racial demogoguery strategy, or simply another gaffe? Really?!?!

    15) Add your own questions w/ respect to this election!

    * Try staying away from the ad hominem attacks!

    I agree. But what Romney did and I'm sure you agree is legal in every sense.

    But. I believe we do need to keep the cap gain rate down for those making less then 250K to encourage the small investor.

    I've said right along we need true tax reform.
