President Romney Would Seek to Establish a New Confederate States of America


RE-POST AS ROMNEY SEEKS REVIVAL IN UTAH

`

It should be abundantly clear to all of us how dangerous a Romney presidency would be.  Mitt Romney  wants to cede federal power back to the states,  many of whom were bankrupt recently and had to quietly seek stimulus funds which they subverted to balance their state budgets.  Who really thinks the states would properly administer sole control of Medicaid? I don’t understand why the polls have the election so close.  I guess many people are befuddled by lying political ads on TV.  They can’t imagine that Mitt Romney would really turn Medicare into a voucher program where the elderly would have to seek healthcare insurance at a time in their lives when their bodies and faculties are waning.  Romney supporters cannot see the dead stacked up in emergency rooms when  after too late seniors are forced to take public transportation to get to a hospital  and seek medical attention to stay alive.

Mitt Romney is some kind of  Svengali who gives stump speeches promising “big things” with no ideas on how to financially make them real.  The Paul Budget is real.  Once installed in the Whitehouse, Team Romney-Ryan would use their good offices to influence Congress to extend tax cuts for the TOP 1% and increase taxes on the poor and middle-class to pay for them.  For 30 years the middle-class has seen no appreciable increase in wages and salaries while those at the top of the ladder have flourished.  President Romney would show us a new meaning for the word misery.  When President Romney repeals Obamacare, we,  the elderly, will have to go back to eating cat food and choosing whether to buy medicines or food. (I am not exaggerating!)

Is Grover over? Less fear of Norquist’s anti-tax pledge


THE LAST WORD WITH LAWRENCE O’DONNELL

By Sarah Muller, @digimuller

Anti-tax lobbyist Grover Norquist put on a brave face despite rumblings of “new revenue” in the form of tax hikes to avert the so-called fiscal curb.

The Americans for Tax Reform founder insisted his “pledge” remains rock-solid and that Republican lawmakers will not cave on their promises never

to raises taxes. “It’s been 22 years since a Republican voted for a tax increase in this town,” said Norquist, according to a reportpublished Tuesday in The New York Times. “This is not my first rodeo.”

But after the 2012 election, rustling up support may be more difficult. In January, the House will seat 16 incoming Republicans who have not signed on Norquist’s dotted line–that’s up from six with the outgoing Congress.

“People don’t always take the pledge first when they run. A lot take it after they have been there for a while,” Norquist said, defending the drop in new signatures. “The pledge isn’t the only vehicle for stopping tax increases.”

Norquist earned the nickname “most powerful man in Washington who does not sleep in the White House” from MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. His anti-tax pledge has seemed to hold Republican legislators–and a balanced budget deal–hostage. The GOP’s refusal to raise taxes to pay down the deficit doomed President Obama’s search for a budget deal last year.

Tax hater Norquist sums up Romney loss: ‘Poopy-head’ Rose Gordon Sala, @RoseGSala


Hwy, Grover a non-partisan federal agency has released a study that says, ‘ tax cuts for the rich do not result in jobs.’  Let it go, Grover. You can no longer try to justify your blackmail agenda! The Trickle-Down economic theory was always a myth.

Let the name calling begin. Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform, blamed Mitt Romney’s election loss on the Obama campaign’s painting the Republican candidate as a “poopy-head.”

“The president was elected on the basis that he’s not Romney and that Romney was a poopy-head and you should vote against Romney,” Norquist said on CBS This Morning Monday.

He continued on to describe negative campaign ads released by the Obama campaign.

“You can trash an individual and get them to vote against him,” Norquist said.

Norquist, who is likely nervous about all the pro-tax talk in Washington right now, said he didn’t believe the president’s re-election provided a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy — or anyone. Norquist’s organization encourages elected officials to sign a pledge that they will oppose any attempts to increase taxes on individuals or businesses.

President Obama’s campaign stump speech consistently called for “the wealthy to pay a little bit more,” particularly by ending a Bush-era tax cut for those American households making more than $250,000 a year.

Norquist disputed that either President Obama or Republican House Speaker John Boehner were interested in raising taxes.
