Two words....balanced approach.
You answered your own question. Need to read it.
Need tax increases un upper income people to go along with reduced spending.
You have a problem with compromise if you have a problem with mostly spending cuts and some increased revenue to go along with it.
Republican get the spending cuts they want along with just a small increase for those that have made out real well last couple of decades.
Romney wants to decrease the taxes on the rich but with a decrease in tax deductions it will be revenue neutral,
EXCEPT THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. He wants 5 trillion in tax cuts above the Bush 1 trillion already in place and two trillion in defense spending that is beyond stupid when we are winding down to wars.
So you got a beef with the guy wants to reduce the deficit with a balanced approach but think Romney BS which don't add up is the way to. ?
It don't add up and to make it add up the middle class will end up paying more because of less tax deductions to finance more tax breaks for the rich and defense spending we do not need.
Appreciate you at least getting in this debate but your argument is sadly flawed.
