“It takes two sides to negotiate a deal, we need both sides to step up.

Obama hasn't done anything except talk about tax hikes on 2% of the country and campaign with that idea. Until they start discussing ideas that will actually have an impact, it's moot.”

Bill Zilla on Nov 28, 2012 at 13:15:04

“Not so. Back when there was an election to lose, Obama was perfectly willing to do a deal that was 10:1 spending cuts to tax increases. Boehner said "No" because he was very certain (as was most of he GOP) that their tactics would make The President a one-termer. They failed. Obama won the election and became less inclined to make deals. Meanwhile the republicans seem to think they still hold some cards. They do not. A new one breaks ranks with Boehner every single day because they want to keep their jobs.”

“Try reading the letter and then making an argument. Is it a wonder why business owners and CEO's do not want another 4 years of President Obama. It's quite simple, if a business pays more to the government in the form of taxes, it will have less money to put towards growth, benefits, salaries, etc.

Is this any different than the pressures unions put on workers, teachers and others to join and to vote Democratic because their agenda will support the union?

“I'm a bit lost, were his comments incorrect? Its wide knowledge 47% don't pay taxes. It's common sense that those who collect well fare, food stamps, unemployment, etc. are going to vote for the person who promises to increase and extend those handouts.

Everyone also knows Obama is the better politician. He speaks better, seems to relate better and could arguably be considered the best campaigner (and donations seeker) in history.

Question though, do we want another 4 years of another smooth talking politician or a foot-in-mouth successful businessman? (his job was to make a profit, he succeeded. If he's president, his job will be to improve the US' financial crisis - the most pertinent issue, and will probably succeed at that too).”

Kevin Mills on Sep 19, 2012 at 15:10:04

“He succeeded with leveraged buyouts, and then draining the equity of companies and dumping them into bankruptcy, like a vampire. Why would we want a president with that kind of resume?

Why does he have disdain for people who don't pay income tax? our soldiers in combat don't pay income tax, the elderly don't pay income tax, low income families with a lot of kids don't pay income tax. This does not make them bad people, they aren't any less american, and they certainly aren't all democrats.
Also consider that low wage earners that pay payroll taxes, sales taxes, gas taxes, property, and local and state taxes. Some of these folks are paying a much higher percentage of income than Mr. Romney himself does.

Besides, our economy is improving, the housing market is nearly recovered, credit is again beginning to loosen up, and hiring will continue. What is so bad about our recovery, it's not fast enough? The republicans could help us out with that by passing the presidents jobs plan.”

“About half of the 47% pays payroll taxes, about a quarter are seniors getting social security which they've paid into. The other quarter are people below the poverty line and then other groups like people on disabilities etc.

Families on welfare make up about 1.9% of the population.

Assuming that everyone in this large swath of the public will vote for President Obama is just incorrect, seniors currently favor Romney for example.”

Freepernix on Sep 19, 2012 at 15:06:38

“The working poor pay taxes -- payroll, state, local, FICA. Unemployment benefits are taxed federally (maybe state, depending on the state). Yes his comments are incorrect. All those red state poor people are going to vote for your guy.

Experience in business and experience governing are two different things and just because he did one well doesn't mean he'll do the other well. Ask the people of MA how well he governed.”

DrDW on Sep 19, 2012 at 14:59:23

“You are wrong. Those 47% do pay taxes, just not income taxes, just like Romney. What's strange is that he thinks they'll be voting for Obama. A huge number are senior citizens who are duped into voting for Republicans. Many are rich fat cats. That's what is strange about his assertion. It does at least that he knows a number or two, but nothing about from where that number comes.”

“Yes, his comments were incorrect. It is false that "47% don't pay taxes." There are lots and lots of fact-loaded analyses out on this now - all kinds of statistics from numerous objective sources that all say the same thing about how few people actually don't pay federal taxes (hint divide 47% by about 75%).
