Outrage about Willard Mitt Romney and Tax Evasion by Tom Nash.

He has written some coherent posts on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/tomnash56

Romney is whining over a charge from Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter that Romney might have committed a felony by misrepresenting his position at Bain in sworn testimony.

“It’s ridiculous, and of course it’s beneath the dignity of the presidency and of his campaign. He sure as heck ought to say that he’s sorry for the kinds of attacks that are coming from his team.”

Tell ya’ what Mitt, why don’t you release Board minutes from 1999-2002 and tax returns from 1999 forward to prove to Obama how unfair his team’s accusations are.

After all, the president released his birth certificate in response to whining from the right.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are pushing for tax cuts applied to all earnings under $250,000, that applies even for a billionaire’s regular income.

The Democratic proposal includes these provisions: a 20 percent capital gains rate on those earning over $250,000; and estate taxes on estates over $3.5 million.

So the moneyed elites will still get very favorable tax treatment just because they didn’t have to break a sweat, punch a clock, or even show up in order to earn their money. Everybody, including the wealthy will get a tax break extension on the first quarter of a million of non-capital gains taxable income.

Sounds like a sweet deal for the rich, right?

“What the President is proposing is therefore a massive tax increase on job creators and on small business. Small businesses are overwhelmingly being taxed not at a corporate rate, but at the individual tax rate. So successful small businesses will see their taxes go up dramatically and that will kill jobs.” (Mitt Romney)

Unfortunately it’s not as sweet of a deal as they want. As far as the “small business” crap goes, they will pay modest 4% increase on income above $250,000. If they don’t want to pay it, all they have to do is leave the excess in their business. Like maybe use it to create a job or 2 for a change.

With wealth disparity so severe that the richest 400 Americans own more than the bottom 150,000,000 Americans, it’s about time we reinstated a modest estate tax.

For you Fox News people who don’t understand my terminology:
Estate Tax=Death Tax
Billionaires=Job Creators
In right wing buzzword gibberish.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In sworn testimony establishing residency status in Massachusetts to run for governor Romney noted that he regularly traveled back to Massachusetts and “remained on the board of the Staples Corporation and Marriott International, the Life Like Corporation” at the time.

Yet a 2011, federal disclosure form filed as part of his presidential bid, he said:”Mr. Romney has not had any active role with any Bain Capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way.”

There are liars, damned liars, then there’s Mitt Romney.
