In response to Obama’s plan to extend the tax cuts for the middle class, Romney called them irresponsible. According to an LA Times piece out Tuesday, Romney came out solidly against the President in his desire to continue the tax cuts for 98% of all Americans.
This of course dovetails with the Grover Norquist statements that anything which raises taxes on the middle class is not included in his anti-tax pledge, signed by Romney back in 2006. As long as the tax cuts for the super rich, who already fail to pay for their fair share of taxes, are allowed to continue to stick it to the middle, working, and poor classes, it is aok by them.
All the claims about job creators of course are long since discredited. Businesses hire when they have customers which demand their goods or services, not because they have a tax break. There are more middle, working and lower class people to be customers than there are the super-rich, so when wealth concentrates, businesses suffer and jobs are lost. For someone who claims to be for the use of supply and demand in capitalism, Romney seems to not grasp the basic market elemental force.
