Harry Reid has been involved in shady land deals and stock insider trading. He got money from congress to build a bridge near property that he owned, increasing it's value many fold. He is an emblem of what's wrong with our government. His net worth exceeds 10 million dollars so he is railing against himself when he denigrates the rich.

William,

I had no idea he was worth so much.

What bothers me so much is that my pay is a matter of public record. Anyone can ask and they must answer. I work for the state.

I had to go through all kinds of hell to get my long form for Passport to go to Canada for a fishing trip, next year.

Why is there two sets of rules? One for the common man, like myself. Another for the elite who make the law?

What is Ironic is Nitt's father was one of the first Politicians to make his Tax returns public when running for office.

Mitt is the exact opposite man that his father was.

Perhaps this is why? I wouldn't be awaiting as Mitt is. Id attack the below issues right now. But, then again; Im neither right nor left. Im a Constitutionalist.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

Romney's claimed 13% tax rate does show his contempt for the concept of shared sacrifice. I guess it is the old carrot and stick thing. We want our people to be prosperous, so those who are should be rewarded and those who are less well off should be given incentives, such as a higher tax rate so they will be more motivated to become prosperous.

As soon as you can cut a check for $3,000,000+ to the IRS, you will be Signed Up.

And, you will also be able to cut $3,000,000+ in Charitable Donations due to your 1%er Status.

So, I'd like to be The First, as An American Citizen, to say Thank You for Doing MORE THAN YOUR FAIR SHARE, in the Tax and Donation Departments.

You Socialist/DEMLibs who are FIXATED on "Percent" Tax Rates are A Laughathon, with No End In Sight.

Oh, and Thanks to all the Little People who pay NO TAXES or can Only muster 2, 3, or 4 figures in their check to The IRS. And a couple figures in Donations. Thanks.

We, The MEGA RICH do enjoy Carrying YOUR LOAD.

The parties not only kick each other when they are down, but they also pick each other back up, because each needs its opponent in order to continue the farcical show of difference in order to contain real opposition within their bifurcated fraudulence. The object is to contain all differences within the party system in order to keep real opposition from mounting from without.


Yet engages in furthering the farce?
