The More I Hear Romney.....

* Here is another example of Mitt Romney's view of how he is entitled to a lower tax rate. This is an excerpt from 60 Minutes on CBS and reposted on Daily Kos:

Then we have this from the Washington Post:

On “60 Minutes” last night, Mitt Romney said it again. “I want to keep the current progressivity in the code. There should be no tax reduction for high income people.”

You’ve heard Romney say this — or some variant of it –dozens of times before. What’s changed since then is that Romney has admitted that his tax cuts, if they’re not going to add to the deficit, will have to increase taxes on people he defines as middle income and cut them on people he defines as high income....

Read the entire article at the Washington Post because you'll see where Romney's plans will probably cost you more taxes. Romney always looks as though he is so disgusted with those who are not rich like him.  Romney regards the American middle class, the poor, our vets, our elderly, as just dumb schmucks and peasants in 'Romney World.'

***** The Toledo Blade has the results of a new poll:

Despite an onslaught of more than $18 million in outside money to knock him from the U.S. Senate, Democrat Sherrod Brown holds a 7-point lead over GOP state Treasurer Josh Mandel in a new Blade/Ohio Newspaper Organization poll.

Mr. Brown’s margin of 52 percent to 45 percent among likely voters is bolstered by a 14-point advantage with women.....

Why do women support Sen. Sherrod Brown? Women support Sen. Sherrod Brown because he believes that women are capable of making their own decisions about their reproductive parts (while Josh Mandel wants to get in between women and their gynecologists!).  Sen. Sherrod Brown voted for pay equity for women.  Josh Mandel opposed it. Sen. Sherrod Brown worked for the farm bill. Josh Mandel hasn't noticed the farmers in Ohio, or the middle class, or our vets, or college students, the elderly, etc.

While Republicans have dismissed and disrespected women in the country, and in Ohio, President Obama, Sen. Sherrod Brown, and Democrats support, trust, and respect the talents and decisions of women. It is no wonder that Republicans just can't get those good approval numbers from women.
