Six Things Mitt Romney Could Buy With His Tax Savings

According to a new report, Mitt Romney’s proposed tax plan would save him about $5 million dollars a year compared to what he would pay under President Obama.

Although it seems like a drop in the bucket for a man as wealthy as Romney, $5 million can go a long way. Here are some of the things that President Mitt Romney could buy with his savings:

  • I wonder why Romney would want to move into the White House ? With his money it probably would probably feel like moving down !

    • EdC

      Jr Bush was the same way, with the Tex ass White house. It’s just the NAA NAA we beat You factor.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Hi Bunny! That’s a good one! I like it. 🙂

      Have a nice day!

  • EdC

    After reading the six items on how Romney could spend his conflict of interst savings, I can’t get over how cheap the lobiest was to go to bat for him to build his house in La Jolla, 21 grAND THERE IS POCKET CHANGE, He would have had to add at least one zero for me to even look at the idea.. Ya it shows you how shallow i am, but then since I got run out of La jolla, for trying to date the chief of polices daughter, I really don’t care what happens there. Still I don’t know why someone would buy any horse for someone else to ride,especially at $105,000, Maybe that’s the NaaNaa factor also, They can, we Can’t.

  • William Deutschlander

    HE , Mitt, wants to be President so he can say he was elected President of the USA, Mitt won’t have any offical responsibilities since the Republican Chamber of Congress and the Republican National Committee will be running the day to day government!

    The entirety of the remainder of the population will be serfs!

  • I Don’t Know About You All But I Would NEVER Vote For Him And His Party Of Terrorists!!! The Trickle Down Crap Is Still Being Use NOW That Why This Country Is In The Shape It In!! There Will Be No Helping The 1% Wealthy Get Even More Rich!!! I Pay My Taxes Let Them Pay Their Fair Share!!!!

    • middleclasstaxpayer

      Fern, get a life! The “wealthy” already pay over 80% of the taxes in the US, while 51 % of our “citizens’ pay NOTHING…..Is that waht you call fair???

      • CPANY

        Many of the fifty-one percent are also wealthy. Also, “middleclasstaxpayer,” your figures are wrong, perhaps because you’re including business taxpayers in your eighty percent.

      • CAS

        Why should someone who only makes $20k a year pay any income taxes? I guess they need some skin in the game instead of food in their belly and a roof over their head.

      • The 51% statement is false, just anther NEOCON LIE that some believe because they do not have the intelligence to do the research!

      • awakenaustin

        This canard is repeated time and time again. It is simply false. Everyone in every State with a sales tax pays taxes. There are lots of hidden taxes. If you need any kind of license issued by a government agency at any level you pay for it and although it is not called a tax it serves the same purpose as a tax. Tax bills are passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices. If you buy gas you pay taxes. If you own property you pay taxes. If you rent you pay the owner’s taxes.
        All sales taxes are regressive and the lower your income the greater the burden.
        I, too, am middle income and I pay the very same sales tax on a pair of pants in Texas as the guy who makes $25,000.00 a year and the guy whose income is $950,000.00 a year.
        To the extend your statement is accurate it applys only to the Federal Personal Income Tax. To the extend it is accurate it shows how concentrated wealth is in our country. However, it is not accurate even so. Everyone who gets a paycheck pays taxes. They may get something back after filling their return depending on their tax rate, deductions, and any credits they may get, but they are taxed.
        All of this misses the larger point. If you live in this country and you benefit from the environment created, the infrastructure, the education system, the national defense, the police department, the fire department, so on and etc,. ad nauseam.
        Then you have an obligation to suport this country. I personally believe the more you have benefitted the more you owe. No man or woman has built his/her fortune or his/her life on his/her labors alone.
        Clearly we can argue about fairness and unequal burdens and efficiencies and waste and so on, but too many act like as if any burden to them is too much and that there is no benefit to them from government action which may benefit others. Taxes are the price of civilization. Do you really want to live in a place where it is every man, woman and child for his or her self, and it is dog eat dog and devil take the hindmost? If you do, why are you so sure you are going to be the one eating the other dogs rather than them eating you?

        We hit a new high on the b.s. meter

  • DIM MITT is NOT the answer!

    Unless this country would like to go through another depression!

  • ObozoMustGo

    Distractions….. Distractions…..

    This is all just nonsense to make us forget about what a failure Obozo really is. He has had one considerable social success, though…. like Newt called him: The Food Stamp President.

    Now we have proof. Here it is…

    Have a nice day! 🙂

    • EdC

      Bozo when are you going to take them blinders off.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Come one Ed. Obozo has EARNED his picture on the Food Stamp now, and you know it! Be honest.

        Have a nice day!

  • I suppose he’ll have to put car elevators into the White House…..Well he and Ann are job creators—-Let’s see staff to run all their homes, trades people to install all the elevators, not to mention all the other services they require for their lifestyle. My my, he is a job creator isn’t he?
