    then why does ryan want to get rid of cap gains tax?

    why does romney pay half the tax rate of countless that make millions less than him? it is not progressive for all. me bitching about this is like conservatives bitching about welfare. it really means nothing for the fiscal situation of the country---its more about fairness.

    Romney won't release his tax returns because then his mormon brothers and sisters would find out how he has been talking about paying his 10 percent tithe, when he probably hasn't. Notice the guy who called him out, Harry Reid, is in fact a mormon as well.

    Once you made this post, you ceased to be worthy of participating in any intelligent discussion. This perspective is incredibly inaccurate and intellectually dishonest. I'm not sure why you have not been called on it and summarily dismissed.

    Isn't Reid the guy who said Romney is paying no taxes? Meanwhile, Obama is running ads complaining that Romney only pays 14%. Which top level Democrat is lying? More importantly, will anyone of note be intellectually honest enough to call one or the other out on the lie?

    Which of the statements I made is inaccurate? The truth is you have no clue what you are talking about friend.

    I see a whole lot of hat and no cowboy. I supported the facts I posted with CBO numbers pal. All you have done is act like a third grader.

    Obama is only using Romney's given number, so if he's lying then Romney is lying. Reid says 0% in more than one year. He may be lying or telling the truth. No one will know unless Romney releases his returns.
