I follow this colleague on FB I used to work with back in the day. I love his posts and comments on the election these days. I saw this one and had to re-post it here along with a spirited exchange he was having with one of his FB friends. I’ve changed the names to protect the innocent. Both of them were making me laugh.
His post and link: Effective tax code to incent growth, job-training, incenting US companies to grow domestically, energy independence, end ridiculous regulatory schemes like Obamacare & Dodd-Frank. This is the best article I’ve seen showing the clear difference between candidates.
Fundamental Economic Requirements For Our Next President – Forbes
Her: Wow, I am soooo surprised that good ‘ol Chuck Schwab would be a Romney supporter. I wonder how many of the other people listed on the Forbes list of richest people are voting for Romney?
Him: Yeah, only the rich support him…. He’s only going to get 1 percent of a vote
Her: poor guy.
Him: It’s almost like you want struggling economy
Him: But at least you read the article…I’ll give you credit for that
Her: I don’t want to go back to the policies that got us into this mess.
The 6 Studies Paul Ryan Cited Prove Mitt Romney’s Tax Plan Is Impossible
Romney’s plan only works if you assume he has a different plan or use a magic growth asterisk.
Him: The biggest myth in the world is that the financial crisis was caused by tax policy. It was caused by government spending and the collapse of the housing market ( which was brought on by liberals)
Him: How can they criticize Romney’s plan and then say they don’t know what his plan is
Him: At least you can read. Most liberals I know can’t read.
Her: You make me laugh, no seriously.
Him: You make me cry, no seriously
Her: Can you honestly say you know what the Romney plan is? What are those tax loopholes that he is getting rid of? And I know I do not make you cry.
Him: One thing I know for sure, the minute he discloses anything, they will attack him on it, regardless. He’s doing the right thing by showing a framework to work with. Like his tax returns…they would attack him regardless.
Him: You make me cry tears of joy
Her: that was a “no”?
Him: You’ll find out Jan 20th
Her: …during Romney’s concession speech when he finally admits that even he did not understand his tax plan.
Him: LOL! Whatever. Obama’s concession speech will be the night of November 6th. Why would somebody wait until after the inauguration? You better start reading the book of Mormon now!
