Trickle-down tax-cut theory disowned by most, but not Romney “Trickle-down” is the theory proposing that fiscal policies favoring the very rich will grow a robust economy benefiting everyone. Reagan’s 23 percent tax cuts and Bush’s 10 percent with reductions in capital gain and dividend taxes were examples of tax cuts that favor the rich. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s and former McCain adviser in 2008, has determined that across-the-board tax cuts deliver little in ...

Re Roberto Carlos on Romney - According to the MA Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy Study when Romney was sworn in 42% senior level appointments were women, but this DROPPED TO 25% during his last two years in office. He also vetoed many bills written to benefit women. He has stated that he will immediately get rid of Obamacare which greatly benefits women and families and defund planned parenthood. He won't state his position on equal pay. Women beware!

Re: Trickle down and Romney - with all the misinformation and lack of veracity in all Romney has presented, are there still "those who trust him"????????

Without the Bush tax cut all middle class taxpayers will be paying $4000 plus more income tax this year, and that's alright with you janesjoy? Maybe you want to pay my 4k for me since you don't need the tax cut.

I'm fairly certain, if it wasn't very clear from Jack Cassidy's letter, that he support's Obama's plan for only discontinuing Bush's tax cuts only for the rich (those making over $250,000), so the middle class would not have to pay any more.

Re Romneys record on hiring women- Why would Romney even need a binder filled with women ? How offensive to women - and creepy I might add. MA economy has thrived despite the recession because of Liberal Democrats controlling the entire State- not Romney. Liberalism and Democrats have given and secured women their rights, in addition to universal healthcare for all in the State. There is not one GOP policy that is compassionate nor beneficial for women or for lower income people or minorities. On the contrary- Republican policy is filled with discrimination and hate for gays, disdain for minorities, non-existant compassion for the poor or immigrants and their plight for a better life. And worst of all- endless support for destructive war and drones that kill innocent people at all cost over productive policies that protect people like Social Security and Obamacare that at least attempts to improve access and health care coverage (like the liberals did in MA)-
is simply ugly. The GOP Party is filled with greed and ugliness. No true interest let alone any evidence in protecting or advancing women or their rights. The GOP party is determined to reverse ROE v Wade !! I think the simple fact that Obama has 2 daughters and Mitt Romney has 5 sons - its a no brainer which person would better help and advance women and womens rights.

Wrong again, it is your Obama that is killing people with drones, well except the embassy terrorists. Obama even has a murder czar for it.
