The Non Partisan Tax Policy Center reports that after studying Romney's tax cut plan, Romney's proposal would boost after tax income for those making over $1 million per year by over 4%, while REDUCING after tax income for those Americans making under $200,000 per year by 1.2%. Romney's tax cuts for the wealthy are added on top of the existing Bush Tax Cuts. Can the Romney's of the world ever be rich enough??? Ten years of Bush's Tax Cuts for the wealthy did nothing for 99% of Americans, but now Romney wants to add more Tax Cuts for the wealthy on top of that. When does common sense and fairness override " GREED " ???
The Non Partisan Tax Policy Center said " Romney's tax proposal would primarily boost the income of the wealthiest taxpayers ". If Romney wins our Seniors, Disabled , Lower and Middle Class Workers will fall further behind, especially when cuts to Social Security and Medicare hit the chopping block with the Ryan Republican Budget for 2013.
The Republicans say there is enough room in the budget for further tax cuts for the wealthy, but we cant afford to maintain healthcare and Social Security for our beloved Seniors and Disabled. The Republicans say our Seniors and Disabled are costing us too much and serious cuts need to be made in Medicare and Social Security.

|For some rich-folks....enough is never enough. That's why Romney hides money offshore which helps other country's economy on money he made here. There must certainly be some sociopathic minds behind these uber rich like the Kochs we read about so often who are 70+ years old and yet all they care about is making more money. They go to so much trouble to promote policies that lead to exploitation , inequality and despair. These individuals seem oddly switched off from the suffering they are clearly causing.|
