As a college student I didn't make enough to pay income tax a few years, so that would put me in that boat.

Generous Motors also laid me off as a college student co-op (!) after which I got three whole months of unemployment - which went towards tuition.

So, yep, I'm there. Might be again someday when I get old enough.

But even if I've been in the 53% for 25 years now, I think Mitt is a schmuck and not much of a Christian if he doesn't give a toot about the poor, whom I believe Jesus said we're supposed to care about? How we're not supposed to give preference to the wealthy but to treat everyone the same at the banquet??

These so-called Christians seem to forget the teachings of their leader very, very quickly when money comes walking in the door.
