cut taxes to grow the economy. find deductions to eliminate. he said this about 100 times during the debates

obama offered nothing above raise taxes on those making over $250k, which can't improve an economy

No he didn't. You can't be a Christian and vote for a Muslim Marxist. You can call yourself a Christian, but it doesn't make you one anymore than it makes me Shaquille O'Neal.

He never specifically named a loophole. His plan was vague.

Do you honestly believe that cutting capital gains would have grown the economy? That's 110+ billion right off the table plus a big increase in military spending.

All while trying to balance the budget and filling in the holes by closing other loopholes (god knows what)

Doesn't add up. I'm shocked the democrats didn't challenge Romney more on his financial plan. There are a ton of question marks...

Are we going to eventually get numbers from the actual vote and when?

I'm curious about the real D/R/I split to see if it's different than the Exits. As I understand it, 19 states were not exit polled and 14 of them were red states including Texas.

t's a fact of life, stop blaming everything on blacks


Another interesting fact: Obama carried 93% of the black vote.

What can be gleamed from this stat? That black voters overwhelmingly voted based on race. More so than white voters.

well they shouldn't have voted for romney or obama


Most of my active political friends voted Gary Johnson myself included.

Republicans will continue to lose the vote of the youth if they don't reform their platform on social issues.

romney promised a better economic plan that will lighten the horrible burden my generation is about to endure


I disagree. A plan to balance the budget by 2040 is not an economic plan

Look at the black vote for the past 4-5 democratic candidates. I'm not sure how a 5% +/- bump can be construed as "black voters voted solely because of race."

It is if a lot of blacks would never vote except with Obama at the top of the ticket.

Anyone else shocked that the democrats didn't say "Mitt, if you cut capital gains, you won't pay a dime in income taxes."

Hmm, let's ask John F. Kennedy..

“tax on capital gains directly affects investment decisions, the mobility and flow of risk capital ... the ease or difficulty experienced by new ventures in obtaining capital, and thereby the strength and potential for growth in the economy”

Reagan? "The historical record, best exemplified by the Reagan tax cuts, repeatedly demonstrates that federal tax revenues rise as capital gains tax rates are cut."

I don't know. I imagine it's very unlikely. Stat mining ballots has to compromise the integrity of your choice to have reasonable anonymity with your vote.

yes. it would induce investment. why wouldn't that grow the economy? investing in companies that grow is the backbone of our economy

He was only going to cut capital gains for those making under $200,000. He would still be paying what he pays now.

Or just widens the divide between the wealthy/upper-middle class and the lower class.

We would have businessmen paying nothing in taxes. Can you find how cutting the capital gains taxes from 30% to 15% helped fuel investing in other companies?
