I think what he was trying to say is that the rich won’t be taxed less, meaning they’ll be paying the same amount of taxes, but that their rates will be lower, i.e. eliminating credits and deductions and lowering rates. Coming out even.

I agree with post #5 that Romney doesn’t plan for the total tax take from the upper income to go down. What he plans is restructuring to bring down the RATES but also reduce deductions, loopholes etc, which will fairly well even out. Why would that help the economy as well as the individuals involved? It puts more productive resources at everyone’s disposal and grows the economy. Whereas you can get lost in the weeds as Obama plays his class warfare card and confuses everyone as to exactly what the ISSUE is, anyway.

yes that is what he said. remove deductions from higher income earners while at the same time reducing the rates. That is a fairer, flater tax which I wholeheartedly support.

Get rid of the damn school programs. Get the Fed gove out of the “feed the school children” business. It belongs at the local level and kids need to grab a bowl of cereal and milk before school. Why does the government have to wait on them...and clean up their mess besides....AND YOU AND I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.
Head start....Get rid of it....It’s nothing but a babysitting program.

Amen! Say it again!
