Just a few hours ago it has been declared the reason why GOP vice-presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan will not discuss the math behind the Romney-Ryan tax plan. Since the Romney-Ryan tax plan is by Romney and Ryan, again, why will he not talk about it. In his own words, "people would be bored by it". Does that say allot about the Romney-Ryan tax plan by not saying anything at all? For me, it definitely does. Not that I'm really interested in knowing about the details in the Romney-Ryan tax plan, because just the fact that Romney's own right hand man doesn't want to discuss it speaks for itself. The facts are that Romney and Ryan believe in totally different tax plans. SO here you have a so called team, running for the White House and they have different stands on taxes.
With this said, if Ryan doesn't really support Romney's tax plan, and will just go along with it because Romney has nominated him as his vice-presidential candidate, then don't you think it is important to know what the vice-president's tax plan would be? We already know that Ryan wants to institute the voucher system when it comes to Medicare.
Everyone knows what President Obama has in mind when it comes to taxes. The President wants to raise taxes for the rich, and lower taxes for the middle class. The 1%'er's really do not need a tax break, but just the top 1% of people make the majority of income in this country, and are easily capable of paying more taxes. In a story in The New York Times, David Leonhardt pointed out that cutting specific tax deductions that Romney mentioned during a closed-door fundraiser -- including second-home mortgage interest deductions and limits on state and local property tax deductions for high-income earners -- would only raise a fraction of the revenue lost in across-the-board cuts. Romney has no major ideas that would bring back revenue lost in across-the-board cuts.
