Mitt Romney Lies #34 – ‘On Question of Releasing Taxes, Romney Sidesteps Again’

As a side note, this is why the American press is a failure. Mitt Romney didn’t ‘sidestep’, he wasn’t ‘slightly inaccurate’ – he lied.
If President Obama loses, will one of the main reasons be that the American Press were cowards in failing to inform and report the truth about what Mitt Romney said?

Misinformation. Disinformation. Lies. Hiding from questions. (And don’t bother with ‘See he went to FOX’. FOX is the 24 hour Romney and Republican Advertising Agency.)

‘Mitt Romney offered a slightly inaccurate version of his tax return history in an interview today, saying he’s released two years of tax returns and that he has released the “same level of information” as John McCain and John Kerry’.

“We’ve of course released all the financial statements that are required by law and then two years of tax returns—the most recent year will be released as soon as that’s prepared,” Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. ”Other financial disclosure is there, the same information that John McCain, or John Kerry for that matter released when they were running for president.”

‘The presumptive GOP nominee has released one year of his returns and an estimate of his 2011 returns. He received an extension and said at the time he would release them in the next six months, which would be October’.

‘John McCain released two years, but John Kerry actually released more than that in his 2004 race, going back to 1999. He released many more returns as a United States senator, as many as twenty’.

‘Cavuto asked Romney if he feels the need to respond to calls for him to release more than the single year he has released. ”The Democrats are always going to be critics,” Romney answered’.

‘His father, George Romney, started the precedent of presidential candidates’ releasing returns when he released 12 years during his 1968 run for president, but Mitt Romney has so far resisted calls for to release more years. President Obama has released 12 years’.

But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Republicans vote to repeal Medicare cuts they voted for and are campaigning against’

This is a basic con job.

Distract with one hand while preforming the ‘trick’ with the other.

If the American public only knew.

‘Just now, the House voted, one more time, to repeal the Affordable Care Act, by an almost straight-line party vote of 244-185, with every Republican voting for “full repeal” and all but five Democrats voting against it’.

‘This vote came after a parade of Republicans went to the House floor today bashing Barack Obama, the Democrats, and the health law for cutting $500 billion from Medicare — one of their central attacks on Dems for two straight cycles now — despite supporting those very same cuts in their own budget, the Paul Ryan plan’.

‘Yet since the Supreme Court upheld the Democrats’ 2010 health care law, Republicans, led by Mitt Romney, have attacked the president and Democrats in Congress by saying that Medicare will be cut too much as part of that law’.

“Obamacare cuts Medicare — cuts Medicare — by approximately $500 billion,” Mr. Romney has told audiences’.

‘The House Republicans have voted twice since 2010 for the same 10-year, $500 billion cuts in supporting Mr. Ryan’s annual budgets’.

But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Conservatives tell GOP leaders they want healthcare funding fight this year’

80+ teabaggers are going to defund health care and replace it with nothing except putting insurance companies back in control of what will and won’t be covered.

These 80+ teabaggers are leading the Republican Party and Republicans around by the nose with the ‘NO COMPROMISE’ agenda that is tearing this Nation apart. .

Not to be too crude about it but the teabaggers are telling America : ‘screw you’.

‘Conservatives in the House are pushing GOP leaders to continue the campaign against President Obama’s healthcare law even after Wednesday’s vote to repeal the law’.

‘Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) are gathering signatures this week for a letter asking GOP leaders to defund the healthcare law this year’.

‘Jordan and Bachmann asked Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) not to bring bills to the floor this year that would provide funding to implement the Affordable Care Act. They also said the House should “take legislative steps necessary to immediately rescind all ObamaCare-implementation funds.”

‘The letter has 80 signatures so far’.

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘GOP’s 1st act after repealing Obamacare is to talk golf’

The Republicans had just voted to take health care away from 30 MILLION Americans.

Just voted!

So of course Republicans are eager to go the the floor of ‘The People’s House’ and talk about what to replace Obamacare with.

Nope.

The first speaker AFTER voting to take away health care from 30 MILLION Americans is Republican Representative Ander Crenshaw……………….talking about the Republicans winning the Annual Congressional Cup…………..in golf.
