The biggest difference, IMO, is that Obama's plan would hit the "rich" harder than Romney/Ryan's. And I'm okay with that. I also think there's a higher risk with Romney/Ryan that we'd end up in a major conflict with Iran, increase defense spending, bring back torture, and allow religion to bleed into government, among other things. As mediocre to poor as Obama has been, Romney/Ryan isn't worth the risk.
