Romney’s Tax Plan: Like Bush’s, Just More So

Romney tax plan would balloon U.S. deficit: report

The new report from the Tax Policy Center scored Romney’s plan on its cost and effect on taxpayers at different income levels. It estimated the plan would cut federal tax revenue by $600 billion, or 16 percent, in 2015.

This estimate assumes the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire at the end of this year, as presently planned. If the Bush tax cuts do not expire, Romney’s plan would cut revenues by $180 billion in 2015, the center said.

“A Romney administration’s revenue agenda would look a lot like President George W. Bush’s, just more so,” said Howard Gleckman, resident fellow at the center, which also has analyzed the tax plans of other Republican presidential contenders, including Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Herman Cain.

Romney also recently came out against the proposed Pentagon spending cuts, despite the fact that Obama has officially ended two wars, and is probably going to end the third this summer.

If Romney ever releases his tax returns, is be willing to wager that his personal yearly tax savings under his own plan are greater than the lifetime earnings of your average American.

Heck, I’d bet you $10,000 on it if I had that much in my wallet…

Maybe Ron Paul’s Supporter’s Xenophobia will finally wake up Republicans to the One Good Candidate they’ve got

Huntsman objects to ad by Paul backers featuring adopted daughters – The Washington Post

Huntsman and his wife have seven children, including Gracie, 12, who was abandoned at a Chinese vegetable market at two months of age, and Asha, 6, who was left to die on a roadside in India the day she was born.

Speaking to New England College’s “College Convention,” he called the two girls “a daily reminder that there are a lot of kids in this world who don’t have the breaks that you do.”

Going after someone for their kids race is sick.  Thinking  those kids’ races are evidence of a multi- generational conspiracy is so ridiculous only RON PAUL people could go for it. 

2011: Driest Year Ever in Texas…our Governor spent several days praying for rain, then ran for President

The Associated Press: Agency ranks 2011 as driest year ever in Texas

HOUSTON (AP) —The National Weather Service says 2011 was Texas’ driest year on record as well as its second hottest.

The agency said Friday the average rainfall for the drought-stricken state last year was 14.88 inches. The previous driest average total was in 1917 with 14.99 inches.

The weather service says 2011’s average temperature was 67.2 degrees. Texas’ warmest year on record was in 1921 with an average temperature of 67.5 degrees.

Last year Texas suffered its worst single-year drought, its largest agricultural losses and the hottest summer in U.S. history. From June through August, Texas averaged 86.8 degrees, beating out Oklahoma’s 85.2 degrees in 1934.

Everything’s hotter and drier in Texas.  Hrmmm….that’s not a very good slogan.
