“VOTER INTIMIDATION is part of the rep.campain. If you look at all the lies they tell, I call that voter intimidation. Tell the truth and let the people decide what they want. Tell a lie and any way you shake that bag, it's voter intimidation. I vote for Lacks to be charged with voter intimidation.”
“Hey, you can't talk about Romney that way. He pays taxes, no body said they couldn't be altered and he works. Isn't he still on record as being employed by Bain. Well at least his tax returns show that he receives a paycheck from them. And didn't he try to fix the polls so no one could vote early, thats hard work. Maybe not legal but who said his lies doesn't cover up things that are illegal. I think the last 10 years of his tax returns should be audited. It's time we start holding politicans accountable for their action. Jail time for Bush, Cheney, and Carl. If you don't put a stop to the lies and hold them accountable, then deceipt will never stop. President Obama, why not make that your first step on your first day of re-election.”
“While there is more work that remains to be done, today’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst downturn since the Great Depression. It is critical that we continue the policies that are building an economy that works for the middle class as we dig our way out of the deep hole that was caused by the severe recession that began in December 2007. THE KEY IS RECESSION 2007
Congress should pass an extension of middle class tax cuts that President Obama proposed, and the Senate passed. This extension would prevent the typical middle class family from facing a $2,200 tax increase at the beginning of next year. In addition, the President has proposed a plan that will enable responsible homeowners to refinance their mortgage and take advantage of today’s historically low interest rates. To create more jobs in particularly hard-hit sectors, President Obama continues to urge Congress to pass elements of the American Jobs Act, including further investment in infrastructure to rebuild our Nation’s ports, roads and highways, and assistance to State and local governments to prevent layoffs and to enable them to rehire hundreds of thousands of teachers and first responders.”
“Totally. I have seen more work on the hyway/byways/ fast food lines/ trees being trimmed/ and layoffs slowed. Best of all, some companies that had moved overseas have admitted what a mistake and have already or in the process of moving their companies back to the USA. All of these things relate to unemployment slowing down. UNIONS are crucial to better pay which creates bigger growth to a positive econ. Elect Romney and watch more jobs moved overseas. THATS WHAT HE IS FAMOUS FOR. A truely loyal American will take a smaller proffit to keep his employees and send his tax dollars to support a free America. Been there-done that, but the long run cost was " I AM A MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN AND NOT A MILLIONAIRE, but I still managed to keep all of my employees an we all worked together thru the tuff times - i would skip a paycheck or two when I was short for payroll. When times started getting better I would take a litte extra if needed and make no mistake that as times continue to improve I will see that each employee that hung in and fought as hard as I did gets something extra. Obama is not perfect, and it was obvious that the problems of the last couple of days are weighting heavy on his mind and shoulders and it showed in the debate. FACT CHECK is a great tool, use it.”
“I have to agree. At first I was taken in by the quickness and showmanship that Mr. Romney possed. I also did my own math and boy it does not add up for Mr. Romney. Taxes were presented so colored that most people aren't going to realize what he said. The 716 million that he said President Obama was taking from Medicare was not true. The tax credits on the books for the rich, when not renew will put approx. 716 million back into the budget, that is where the money will come from to pay for the projects. Romney continued to say it's not 5 Million. He was correct. It is 4.8 million, so whats a million here or there. People should check out the facts for both parties. It's called FACT CHECK and I think they will see that President Obama was telling the truth. Sorry, but I can say Romney won the debate, but did it with lies, I have to change my vote to President Obama. I understood the reduction Romney talked about for the Middle Class. Reduce what you can claim. i.e. If you can claim 4 in your family at $3000 ea this year, then next year you will only be allowed to claim $2000 for the 4 in your family. I don't know exacly what that allowance is currently but I unstand that if one goes down, then your bottom line goes up (Taxable income) = money out of your pocket.”
“I have to agree, Mitt was impressive. He had me until he starting talking about things I understood and things I have followed. WOW. SS, Medicare, tax deductions for the rich and reduction of of deduction for the middle class. Am I the only person that understood deduction for the middle class. Example: If you are allowed 1500 dollars for each person in your family and that is reduced to 1000, the bottom line = more taxable dollars for you. (YOU PAY MORE IN TAXES). FACT CHECK IS ALSO VERY HELLFUL FOR THE OTHER STUFF MITT SAID.) I FOUND ALMOST EVERYTHING HE SAID WAS NOT QUITE TRUE.
CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU LET RUDENESS =KNOWLDEGE.”

“Rude? or detail-minded? Obama didn't seem to mind if we were misled.
I wouldn't hold it against Romney for not having more time to talk. A lowered tax rate counts for a lot.”

“You don't know the difference between a deduction and an exemption. Maybe you should educate yourself before you make an inane comment that just confuses people.”

“Did he not say that he would lower the tax rate, and eliminate deductions to keep the revenue stream neutral. this means no higher taxes for an individuial. But for the small business owner it would mean less tax as the elimination of these deductions would have less impact on them. Your example of 1500 dollars does not take into consideration a lower tax rate, only the elimination af a deduction.”

Wake up and smell the roses. Watch your wife, husband or child suffer in such pain that they can't even talk to you. Watch you mother or father laying in their death bed and you can't do anything to help easy their passing. I say to you, you are a coward and hope that on their death bed, they spit in your face.
Make marijuana legal and you will get rid of some of the crime while the taxes that State, County, and federal will receive will help cover health care and other needed programs.”
“I don't think that the custom has been only two years of taxes. From what I know about filing is that you generally file on time and if something is wrong you file an amendment. I would like to know if that is what he has been doing for the last ten years. We the middle class know he has a ton of money so I can't think of any reason, that a honest man, would not have a problem disclosing his returns...He is the one that has caused everyone to become so curious about why he is making this such a big issue.”

“LOL, right. Don't forget that this is the same loser who urged voters to borrow money for college or to start a business from their parents. He also thinks that $200 to $250k is middle class. He's got a firm grip on the reality of the American citizens alright. Not out of touch at all.”

“1. A CongressPERSON collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
3. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system,Congress loses their current government health care system.
4. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
5. Term limits, then go home and back to work.” I want to know “Why is it that, We the People can’t insist that our GOVERMENT REPRESENTIVES pass a Congressional Reform Act and make this happen. WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD DEMAND THESE CHANGES AND WANT A BILL ON OUR NEXT BALLOT TO MAKE THESE CHANGES.”
“My husband had surgery this morning and as I started my 4 hour drive back home I found myself stopped at a red light. A elderly lady was walking between the stopped cars rubbing her tummy and asking for money for food. I had a five and two one's. Payday is 10 days and my bank account has enough for the next tank of gas to return to L.A. in a week to pick my husband up when he is discharged. I didn't stop to think was this a scam or a real person in need. I rolled down the window and handed her my $7.00 as the man behind me honked his horn and was waving his arm in a motion for me to get my -- -- -- -- in gear and out of his way. Dear Me, I hope he has a flat on all four tires.

“"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,"Warren Buffett told CNBC. "Pass a law that says:anytime a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
The 26th amendment (18 year-olds) the right to vote took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it.
Congressional Reform Act of 2012
No Tenure / No Pension and receives no pay when they're out of office they (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately, future funds flow into the Social Security system.
Congress can purchase their own retirement plan ,Congress will no longer vote them-selves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of (CPI or 3%). Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
Don't you think it's time? By the People, For the People, Of the People!
“And I remember: Every time President Obama tried to get Congress to work with him to resolve the issues that would have made the United States stronger, bring companies back into the US which would have decreased the Unemployment; I remember watching the viedo of the night in the War room with the world watching Bin Laddin rein of terrior finished; I remember my party stating their only objected was to get P. Obama out of office; I remember that nother else mattered. It mattered to me that Congress could have done what was best for our country; I remember all of those things. Oh by the way, how did you determine that Pelosi's net worth changed or that Kerry paid a lower rate than Romney;. I think they release their tax returns and didn't wait for their accountant to get done. What does that mean? We all have to file on 15th of April every year. So, Mitt hasn't file taxes for 10 years, or the accountant is changing the returns. I think I smell a stripped kitty behind the barn and I think you can't think for yourself. If you could, you would look at the whole picture. I think I am so glad that my body can perform mircles keeping me from getting pregnant all by its self. Most and far most is, I can think for myself and I have watched my party, the Republician Party, play the part of Idiots, Idiots, I say.”
“Did you have a brain toot. Unemployment hit 10% under Bush's administration. It was a like a ball rolling down hill and by the time President Obama was able to get in front of it, it was like a freight train. It will take years for the Obama administration to not only get it stopped but to pull that ball back up the hill where it came from. So you do the math 10% then 8% now....”
“Speaking of making his tax returms public like every President canidate has done, what does Mitt mean when he said " When my accountant has them ready, then I will disclose them" Doesn't he have to file his taxes on the 15th of April just like the rest of us. So what does his accountant have to do to get them ready. I can only assume that means when we change them to what we want the public to see then we will release them. I would think that they would be on file just like my returns are on file and I can request a copy of them very easily.”

“Big people do not think they could ever get caught ....keep hammering him about taxes pass this on”
“Why should we talk about the murder of that girl or all of the other children being killed in Syria. The job of the DNC is to help get President Obama re-elect so that he can try to bring peace talks to all these countries that don't care about their own people. His job is to get health care for all Americans and jobs for the unemployed and housing for the homeless. His job is to try to stablize the National Debt. It all started with the Bush era. The ball just started rolling down the hill ever so slowly and by the time President Obama was elected that ball was flying down the hill. Try standing in front of that ball and stop it and then try pushing it back up the hill. You need to look back into the history with President Clinton. Put your bias aside and look at the facts about where our economy was, were was unemployment, where was the debt and follow those facts. What have you done to help. Get the real facts and then go vote for the first Black American to have dared to have HOPE for all of us. Then follow the trail to the jobs that have been outsourced and the companies that have the tax shelter because they outsourced their headquartes and you will find Mr Romney leading the way.”
