  •  and what is so insidious about this scam (6+ / 0-)

    1.  Romney is paying taxes to foreign governments so he won't have to pay US taxes and at the same time
    2.  He is arguing that tax rates in the US be reduced to further limit his own liability to pay taxes to the US
    3.  He and Queen Anne suggest that these foreign taxes count as paying US taxes so he is implying that he paid taxes that he did not pay
    4. while at the same time decrying the US debt that paying US taxes rather than avoiding US taxes could help reduce
    5. arguing that basic services to other Americans be cut because people like him don't want to pay their fair share of taxes
    6.  Not one broadcast news reporter or print journalist from a major news outlet has called him on this, or even asked him a question designed to get an answer as to whether he paid US taxes

    Thanks hungrycyote for doing the investigative reporting that others are too lacking in intestinal fortitude to do.
