A genuine question to those who support Romney.

Posted by   + Show Post

I've asked this is a few threads but no one seems to want to answer.

What, in your opinion, did Romney offer last night that should have been helpful to some one undecided?  

I realize the time was restricted but what did he offer to Americans?

Specifics, not just his back and forth on how he feels about the current Administration.

This has nothing to do with the President.

What did I not hear last night that Romney has to offer America?

Notice I said last night................I am speaking specifically of what he offered during the debate.  Not at any other time.

Yes, agreed and I know that quite well.  We seriously need a 3 party system as I have stated for the last 23 years of my voting life!

Quoting dustinsmom1:

 Unfortunately, in our current 2 party system, a 3rd party vote is technically a vote for Oblama. Sad but true.

Quoting funnymommy71:

RON PAUL.........

Quoting HeathersForever:

Is that enough to "hook" you? Because if it is the only reason you want to vote for someone you should look at the third parties and actually back someone you believe in and not someone you hate just hate less.

Quoting Paperfishies:

The only thing Romney has to offer, is that he isn't Obama.

Romney not saying which loopholes/credits he'd eliminate because he needs to work with Congress on that is really pretty sly.

Does anyone really believe the members of Congress (most of whom are quite wealthy) are going to go along with eliminating the very deductions, write-offs, credits, etc. that allow them to substantially lower their tax liability, sometimes near to zero? Though to be fair, they would undoubtly go along with eliminating EITC and perhaps the child credit. The one doesn't affect them at all and the other they can do without, however losing them would adversly affect those with far less means.

It wasn't so awfully long ago that Obama wanted to eliminate that credit, write-off or whatever it was that was an advantage for those who own corporate or private jets. Congress wouldn't hear of it. Apparently even though corporations and a few private people can afford to purchase the jet they really do need Gov. help to operate it.

If Romney is somehow elected, lowers the tax rate but doesn't close loopholes, etc. that only the very wealthy can take advantage of but does manage to eliminate the EITC and child credit, he can always blame Congress for the lower income groups ending up with far more of the tax burden.

..... So you are dropping your health insurance just to make a point?

 I haven't had HE for three years.  It's been cheaper to pay out of pocket what we require each year.

I hope you nor anyone in your family ever have a catastrophic health event.  I'm not being snarky - I truly hope that for you.

If you don't mind clearing something up... Can you be specific about what tax increase and fewer deductions you are talking about?  Do you make more than $250K/year?

Quoting GotSomeKids:

We've already calculated it.  We are middle class and between the tax "INCREASE" and fewer deductions we are going to have to pay an additional $2100 a year (give or take).  We did refinance the house, so that will also change some deductions as well.  We'll see how it goes.

Don't they both want to do that?


Quoting toomanypoodles:

 Cut taxes in order to grow the economy.  That's what he said


CUT TAXES!


Are you kidding?! Honey, Obama said he plans to INCREASE taxes! I cannot afford 4 more years of him. And that Obamacare you're waiting for? You realize that's gonna cost ya another 2 and a half grand a year, don't you?

I understand many hate and will avoid solving math problems, but the point you make here is pretty straight forward and obvious.

Taxes are not going to go down for all if MR is elected. 

MR was word smithing-

Quoting sherry132:

After watching the debate last night, I'm still trying to figure out which animal abuser I can live with, the one that eats a dog and says it's delicious, or the one that puts his dog on top of his vehicle and drives across the country.

For me, that's what this election boils down too. I cringe just thinking about how horrible are choices are. 

Eating a dog raised to be eaten is worse than eating a pig raised to be eaten?
