Are these guys for real? We are 60 DAYS away from an election and Romney STILL can't give specifics about what tax loopholes he'll close.
When Stephanopoulos asked him why he has refused to be more specific about which loopholes he would plug, Ryan suggested that it's because he and Romney don't yet know. "George, because we want to have this debate in the public," he said. "We want to have this debate with Congress. And we want to do this with the consent of the elected representatives of the people and figure out what loopholes should stay or go and who should or should not get them."
Meanwhile, host David Gregory tried to get some specifics out of Romney in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Give me an example of a loophole you would close," Gregory said, after trying and failing several times to coax the candidate into giving specifics.The truth of the matter is HE DOES KNOW WHAT TAX LOOPHOLES HE WILL CLOSE. They will be the ones that affect the 1% the least while fooling the low information voters that he actually did something.
Romney couldn't give one. "Well, I can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exemptions," he said. "Those numbers are going to come down. Otherwise they'd get a tax break. And I want to make sure people understand, despite what the Democrats said at their convention, I am not reducing taxes on high income taxpayers."
And, once again, the middle class will bear the brunt. These people are so transparent in their intentions it's sickening.
Mitt - how do you sleep at night knowing how disingenuous, callous and destructive your policies will be? Is becoming President of the US such a drug that you're willing to destroy all of us to benefit you? I'm afraid I already know the answer to this question.
