AP: Mitt Romney: 'I Don't Want to Raise Taxes': Actually Mitt Raises Taxes by 200B$



Again Mitt Romney back on that same line that President Obama wants to cut and weaken defense, trying. To put the sequester on him, perhaps not realizing that the President of the United States is not a dictator and we don't have a Parliamentary Government, where the Prime Minister and sometimes. President essentially gets whatever they want when it comes to the Federal Budget, President Obama can't pass a Federal Budget or Debt Ceiling Extension on his own, Congress passed the. Sequester in August, 2011 and the President signed it into law, thats how Divided Government good or bad works and he negotiated this through a Republican House and a Democratic Senate, not just. A Divided Government but a Divided Congress but the thing that struck me as odd about this, was that Mitt was telling that falsehood, lie really to be straight about it, he knows better or at. Least should know better, since he's running for President of the United States, is that he was saying this thing again, in front of a military audience, that knows what the sequester is about. And how it came into law, you are not going to win a lot of votes in the military, when you consistently say things, that they know are not true.

As far as the Tax Hikes, Mitt Romney unless he's already removed it because of how unpopular it is. Has a 200B$ Tax Hike in his economic plan, 200B$ that was part of the 2009 American Recovery Act, taken out of the economy and put into the hands of the Federal Government, Federal Employees, that. Mitt puts down, thats just a fact, the same thing that House Republicans did when they passed their extension of the Bush Tax Cuts back in August, so when he gets on President Obama for wanting. To raise taxes, he's not mentioning that so would he, if he ever became President, its like healthcare, accusing someone of doing the same thing that you did, pure hypocrisy.

In an election where the incumbent President is known for passing a very unpopular healthcare bill, his opponent can't use that against him. Because he passed basically the same thing when he was Governor, its just another example of how bad of a nominee Mitt Romney has been for the GOP.
