If Romney wants to cut the budget for PBS, museums, infrastructure, food stamps (i.e. feeding the poor like his faith says he has to do), and give tax cuts to rich people such as himself, then he must believe that it is more important for him to have this money than them.  So, why?

Someone please ask him: What will you do with that extra money, that you can't do with the millions you already have, that will be better for the public good than the programs you want to starve?

If we don't want to borrow from China to pay for PBS, why would we want to borrow from China to pay for a car elevator?

P.S. Sorry for the excessive italicization.

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.

  •  just ask him if he's estimated his tax savings (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe we could help. His 2010 returns has his income at $14 mil. so his tax liability @ 35% should be around $4.6 mil. so if he got a 20% tax reduction he would be saving nearly a million dollars a year on his taxes, while the nation he strives to lead loses money that could be used for the common good or to pay for the military industrial complex so favored by Mitt and the rest of our politicians.
    I bet no one asks him about the changing of management fees to low tax and no tax categories and if these are the kind of loop holes he plans on resending.
    Alas, none of us can get to him. We'll have to keep bringing up these questions in headlines. However, the answers are only obvious when the bull shit is brought to light.

  •  Mitts taxes would go up under his proposal. (0+ / 0-)

    Romney and others overstate the 20% rate cut, as the proposal does not cut tax rates on dividends and capital gains (see http://www.mittromney.com/... ).  As most all his income comes from these sources he gets little benefit from the rate cut.  As the tax proposal highly limits the deductions Mitt could take, his net Federal income taxes would increase by many hundreds of thousands.

    I hope Pres Obama does not ask the question you propose as it plays into Mitt's hands.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.

  •  We borrow from China to pay... (0+ / 0-)

    For wars. If it is such a bad idea now, why wasn't it a bad idea before?

    Only the weak & defeated are called to account for their crimes.
