Talk about timing!
On the eve of the first Presidential debate, Veep Joe dramatically, fiercely, earnestly spewed a truth out of his lying lips:
This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest… How they can justify — how they can justify — raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years… How in Lord’s name… — Vice President Joe Biden, spreading the conservative message at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina, Oct 2, 2012.
Contrary to all the lies shooting out of the Obama/Biden calumny camp, Governor Romney will NOT raise taxes on the middle class. He and Paul Ryan are CHAMPIONING the middle class AND the poor; they will kick-start Obama’s cardiac-arrest economy and create upward mobility for all.
Under Obama/Biden, 23 million fellow citizens DO NOT HAVE JOBS, one in six Americans now find themselves in POVERTY, food stamp and disability enrollments have exploded, and average Americans have lost income to the tune of $4,000. Many lucky enough to have a job are often overworked for less pay and are afraid a pink slip is just around the corner. Under spend-’n-go Barack and Joe, gasoline and food prices have flown out the roof!
Romney’s tax plan – from his website:
America’s individual tax code applies relatively high marginal tax rates on a narrow tax base. Those high rates discourage work and entrepreneurship, as well as savings and investment. With 54 percent of private sector workers employed outside of corporations, individual rates also define the incentives for job-creating businesses. Lower marginal tax rates secure for all Americans the economic gains from tax reform.
Make permanent, across-the-board 20 percent cut in marginal rates
Maintain current tax rates on interest, dividends, and capital gains
Eliminate taxes for taxpayers with AGI below $200,000 on interest, dividends, and capital gains
Eliminate the Death Tax
Repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)
Without going into specifics right now because they’re outlined on his website and because The Gov will speak more on his plan at tonight’s debate in Denver, Romney will also CLOSE TAX LOOPHOLES for the wealthy.
From Team Romney/Ryan:
The Obama economy has crushed the middle class—with more than 23 million Americans struggling for work.
Yesterday, Vice President Biden finally admitted that the last four years have “buried” the middle class.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
The only thing Biden is earnest about is deceiving Americans.
Oh… Ol’ Joe’s usage of the Lord’s name to emphasize his lie that Romney will raise taxes on the middle class? Earnestly shameful.
