“He’d ask the middle class to pay more in taxes so that he could give another $250,000 tax cut to people making more than $3 million a year. It’s like Robin Hood in reverse,” President Obama said. “It’s Romney Hood.”

A new independent analysis (pdf) of Mitt Romney's tax plan should, in theory, dramatically change the nature of the election-year debate over tax policy. In short, Romney's proposal is built around a middle-class tax hike, the proceeds of which would go to give wealthy "job creators" a very generous tax cut.
  • Mitt Romney's plan to overhaul the tax code would produce cuts for the richest 5 percent of Americans -- and bigger bills for everybody else, according to an independent analysis set for release Wednesday.
  • The study was conducted by researchers at the Brookings Institution and the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, who seem to bend over backward to be fair to the Republican presidential candidate. To cover the cost of his plan -- which would reduce tax rates by 20 percent, repeal the estate tax and eliminate taxes on investment income for middle-class taxpayers -- the researchers assume that Romney would go after breaks for the richest taxpayers first.
  • They even look at what would happen if Republicans' dreams for tax reform came true and the proposal generated significant revenue through economic growth.
This isn't a hack-job published using worst-case scenarios; it's the opposite. The Brookings Institution and Tax Policy Center made every assumption in Romney's favor, giving him the benefit of the doubt as much as possible.

I put together the above chart by income group -- on the far left, we see those in the bottom 20%, then those in the next highest quintile, and so on. Notice that everyone's tax burden go up under Romney's vision, except those in the top 5%, who see get a generous windfall.

And here's the kicker: I had to leave off the top 0.1% of earners, because it made the chart unreadable. If you're in the bottom 80%, your tax increase under Romney would range from $128 to $1,880, but if you're in the top 0.1%, your tax break would be worth nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

The author of that article and creator of that chart is Steve Benen.

He's the producer of the Rachele Madcow show on MSNBC.

Google it.

In other words, he can't. Even though he always asks me to prove what I post and I do prove it. But he will find something to make him feel that it is fake. If God himself came down and told him, he would ask for his birth certificate.

Occasionally, you have. I'll give you credit for that.

The Barry Birth certificate presented by Barry was fake as admitted by the White House.

Its kinda grey in the constitution.

But, it has been defined by the supreme court at least three times to affirm it as law.

"Natural Born" means both parents of a new born were born in America as US citizens.

The Obummer very clearly does not meet that criteria. His father was not born in the USA.

Look it up yourself.

Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as President of the United States:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
You are correct! I cannot find where it defines who a natural born citizen is and I always heard that both parents had to be citizens. But I looked and didn't find that definition.

I concede the point!
If he was born in Hawaii he is a citizen and elligible.

Show me the actual case, and the ruling. Don't post some BS you found in a blog.

BTW: Why didn't the RNC make an issue out of this in 2008? Why Hasn't the RNC made an issue out of this in 2012? The RNC has access to some of the best Lawyers in the country, why didn't they use this legal power and go after this supposed issue.

What does it matter? will it make you change your love of Barry ?
You are so happy that no one can actually find an actual case file that proves Barry to be an illegitimate president even though you know in your mind he is.

I know it won't make any difference to the brain dead lefties.

But, if you check the link I posted, the 4 cases are listed there. Names, cases, and dates are there.

Its not rocket science. Took me all of three minutes to find just one link. Many other links listed with the same info.

Wasn't Mitt's father born in Mexico, yet he was able to run for president. How does that work if you say Obama's mother was not born in America making him not qualified.
