Skip to comments.Does Romney's Tax Plan Accept the Premise of the Left's Class Warfare? (Rush has MR news)
Posted on 04/17/2012 6:07:06 PM PDT by STARWISE
"Now on Sunday night Romney was here in Palm Beach for a big fundraiser. Word has leaked out about some of the things that he said to the donors.
These are things that he's not said publicly in terms of specifics on policy, and one of the things that he talked about was a tax plan.
He wants to lower rates but eliminate some deductions for the rich.
And I have to tell you, folks, I'm not comfortable with the Republican nominee talking about special plans for "the rich," special plans for "Hispanics."
That was part of it, too. He was saying we're gonna have to do some special outreach for Hispanics, special outreach for women. No, we don't. Not as conservatives. We don't have to have special policies for this group and that group or special whatever.
One of the tax ideas was to eliminate... Now, get this: Eliminate the mortgage deductibility on second homes. Now, that's populism. We're talking an amount of money that's no different than the Buffett Rule. It's a shame.
His capital gains idea is also a little curious, because it, too, is targeting "the rich," anybody making over $200,000 jointly and introduces progressivity into the tax which seems fair or what have you.
These are not the things that a Republican, much less a conservative nominee, needs to be talking about or saying. This is Rockefeller Republicanism. This is identity politics. It's the kind of stuff that the left talks about."

My two cents:
Don't be lulled into complacency, indifference, cynicism, or fatigue.. or deceived into believing MR is the only choice. He's the Beltway's choice. That's just what they (GOP elite and radicals) all want .. just let the "chosen one" slide right in there. He IS NOT the chosen one of pro life, God, truth, country, and liberty loving American conservatives.
Newt is still in the race. Gird your loins. We still have time. We can fight this .. and we can have peace of mind that we chose a documented conservative, if there is an election, and didn't support what we were handed by the DC Machine elites for THEIR purposes, even though MR is the furthest from a core conservative. Au contraire .. I'm sure he's a decent family man, but he doesn't march to our drum. He's the opposite ..a blatant, demonstrable, progressive, finger-in-the-wind flip flopper who's shown repeatedly that he will say whatever it takes to achieve his lofty goal.
The campaign issues all play into the our big picture, but note how they're diverted and devolve into the more trivial, populist, race/class matters:
race, women, working/stay at home Moms, tweets, talkshow eruptions
compared to what's really at stake. It's an intentional engineered scheme by both sides to take our eyes off what's being trampled, lost and destroyed .. daily .. in our nation: FREEDOM, RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, SMALLER GOVT AND GOVT INTRUSION, REDUCED TAXES, INDIVIDUALISM, CAPITALISM!
It's not over 'til it's OVER! God bless us with what our representatives in govt DON'T have: COURAGE, FORTITUDE AND CONVICTION. And may God have mercy, bless and help us save our blessed America, before she's vanishes before our eyes.
PS .. I’m a bit under the weather, so my responses
will be irregular.
No Romney, ever and I’m sick of hearing that not voting for Romney is the same as voting for Obama.
“F” anyone before they even say it.
Praying that Newt comes through for us but if not, to hell with Romney.
If Romney’s plan is revenue neutral, that is, he lowers taxes as much as the increased revenue by removing the property and income tax deductions, then this will help lower tax red staters and increase costs for high tax states. It would also simplify the tax code.
Mitt Romney should just switch parties
I wish Rush would expose Romney for the socialist turd that he is. There is still time for Newt.
Call it ‘progressive appeasement’, he should have offered a flat tax. Still learning what Conservative Solutions are, 4 years of anticipating running again doesn’t offer much time to study the income tax issue...
We are the resistance!!
Without Rush backing him Romney wouldn’t have won as many primaries, in my opinion.
Rush forgot to mention that Romney defines the “rich” at $200k, while even Zero defines the “rich” at $250k.
Add class warfare mongering to pro-abortion, pro-global warming, pro-gun control, tyrannical socialist turd.
Gingrich will be on my ballot, if I have to write him in.
That’s my response to the RNC, Coulter, Rush and all the elistists trying to force Romney on me.
Romney’s Progressive Solution for the Income Tax will put off the Obama Complete Economic Freeze of 2013, until 2015, thus proving he is just a slower version of getting to the Liberal Society.
Agreed. I actually quit listening to Rush and Hannity because I’m tired of hearing them pimp the socialist pos. This article gave me a little hope.
The GOP is stuck on stupid.
Yes, a Romney 20% across the board income tax cut leaves as many Tax Tiers as the Liberal Democrat is proposing, the mega-rich, the super-rich, the wealthy-rich, the rich, the kinda-rich, the less-rich, the working-rich, ...
Romneny’s socialist record and beliefs have been exposed. Sadly the Conservative vote split between Newt and Santorum and Romney slithered in.
Speaking of that callous opportunist, used to be was conservative Coulter . this is a MUST hear. She just HATES to hear ANY truth about Mitty. Gets REAL huffy:
How about if we get a government tax plan where you pay your taxes the same way a lender decides your interest rate. The worst your FICA score the higher your interest rate.....so the less you earned or worked the higher your tax rate........Now that would get people up early in the morning.
