Every time you look at or listen to the top ticket of Romney/Ryan and the down ticket races in the Congress especially but also State Governor and Legislatures and any mention of taxes you should be hearing a little voice saying:
"Hey wait a minute, they want to maintain the wealthy tax cuts and seek to lower the rates even more while only going after phantom, unmentionable, loopholes they put into play? After these wealthy, especially, added to that rapid growth of through investments in these two wars if not directly through the congressional no-bid contracts for! As the costs for both are still not being paid, were off the books till the present Administration, are still borrowed and so are the costs as to the results while these pols seek to cut the VA funding and privatize the VA!"!!!
BIDEN: And, by the way, they talk about this Great Recession if it fell out of the sky, like, "Oh, my goodness, where did it come from?" It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card, to at the same time put a prescription drug benefit on the credit card, a trillion-dollar tax cut for the very wealthy. I was there. I voted against them. I said, no, we can't afford that.
And now, all of a sudden, these guys are so seized with the concern about the debt that they created.
BIDEN: I would say to him the same thing I say to my son who did serve a year in Iraq, that we only have one truly sacred obligation as a government. That's to equip those we send into harm's way and care for those who come home. That's the only sacred obligation we have. Everything else falls behind that.
I would also tell him that the fact that he, this decorated soldier you talked about, fought for his country, that that should be honored. He should not be thrown into a category of a 47 percent who don't pay their taxes while he was out there fighting and not havingto pay taxes, and somehow not taking responsibility.
On FLOTUS & SLOTUS "There is this sense that this is genuine," says Raezer. "We haven't had this kind of visibility from the White House—ever." Joyce Raezer - December 30, 2011
"We want to talk about the glory of the war, how patriotic it is, but we don't want to focus on the costs of war, what happens when these men and women come back," Congressman Bob Filner Jun 26, 2012
"Romney and Ryan might gut by up to 20 percent investments in the Department of Veterans Affairs -- and even suggest privatizing the veterans' health care"
"Everybody has all these programs, ball games praising veterans, and all the presidential candidates praise them, but Obama’s the only one that’s got the budget money. And he’s the only one willing to — if we have to raise taxes in order to help veterans, we’ll have to raise them on the very wealthy, and maybe on everybody, but we’ve got to do it." Former Sen. Larry Pressler. (R-SD) Vietnam Vet 8 Oct. 2012
