Easy - just provide your missing tax returns.  I’ll betcha in two hours nobody on earth will remember an idiot thing you said at that fund-raiser.

I happen to be one your despised 47 percent, and I need to correct the impression you’ve created over the past couple of days by running your stupid mouth off.

I am a senior on disability.  This is not an "entitlement", or a "freebie" or "giveaway".  It’s an insurance benefit.  All the years I was working, from the age of sixteen, I paid premiums for this eventuality in the form of FICA taxes.  I have to admit I am stunned that you, the Great and Powerful Oz Business Guru, doesn’t understand the difference between a benefit earned through premium payments and a giveaway.

I haven’t paid Federal income taxes for the past few years, mostly because my income, which consists of Social Security Disability payments and a small annuity which provides an additional 50%, is offset by medical bills that are quite high ($13,000 for 2011 alone) and deducting them from my income saves me from having to pay tax.  If this is one of the "loopholes" in the tax code you intend to get rid of, then I don’t see how I can survive.  I guess if you’re dead you’re no longer capable of mooching off the government, huh?

I’ve never been called a "freeloader" in my life, until you did in that video that has been making the rounds.  I’ll bet if we ever get a peek at your tax returns we’ll get a good lesson in what the term 'freeloader" really means.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
