The Conservative ideology is repulsive, which is what Mitt represented. That's THE problem.

For example, Billionaire CEO Warren Buffet has a 11% tax rate.

The difference between Hillary and Romney is Hilary supports higher tax rates for CEO's.

But millionaire CEO Mitt Romney wants to keep his 13% tax rate.

And yet they use every method possible to keep their own rates low. They disclosed offshore accounts. How's that make you feel?

Every person uses every method possible to keep their own rates low.

How come all this right wing rancor was never directed at Paul "Wiener-mobile" Ryan?

That's because all their taxes are capital gains taxes i.e. 15% flat rate. But you're the ones who wanted to raise the top bracket from 35-38%, as if that was going to do anything.

Please settle down, you Walmart shoppers. If you work hard, maybe you can shop at Target and eat at Five Guys.

What legitimate candidate for the Presidency is not a 1 percenter? That's barely over $500K in income, you know?

I'm an every day middle class person and I can't relate to you liberals. The way you see life is bizarre. No one owes you a thing because you exist. You do realize that Big Government will never legislate your prosperity so stop being a useful idiot.

How can Americans making $250,000 a year get 6% tax rates like millionaire CEO Dick Cheney?
-But you could care less about Americans making $250,000 a year.


And before you come back with Flat Tax/Fair Tax spin (remember thats just another tax cut for the rich.)
