My impassioned 72-year-old (Now 74, but who’s counting?) friend, who goes by the Twitter name @42bkdodgr, would like to share his feelings about the Romney/Ryan tax plan, such as it is. I am more than happy to oblige.
But first, a personal note from 42bkdodgr:
Many of you may wonder why I chose to use the “ 72 year old friend” as the introduction to my Special Comments. I selected the moniker so readers could see that from my age and life experiences I give a different perspective to the issues of today.
Time For Facts
For months when asked by the media about what loop holes they will close or what tax their tax plan is, we get from Romney and Ryan that they should wait until after the election. Rep. Ryan goes on to say that he wants these issues to be done in the light of day in Congress.
Well I hate to break it to Romney and Ryan, but all of the House and one third of the Senate is up for election in November. Therefore, how can the electorate ask Republican candidates any questions on whether they agree with your positions on those issues if you refuse to discuss them?
You are doing a disservice to the American public and the election process by refusing to answer these important economic questions.
Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan it's time for you to tell the American public your tax plan.
