So far, Harry Reid is the only one who "knows" that Romney doesn't pay any taxes and he's not talking about the source.

The problem with that is with the 2 years that Romney has reported, he paid over $6M to the IRS and donated over $7M. Is his tax rate low; yes. Does he pay significantly more than that 50% of the folks who pay zero; yes.

I actually pay a lower rate than Romney. That is primarily due to a huge amount of medical bills and sizable donations. Based on Democratic theory, I guess I should feel bad or pay more because I'm filing legal taxes and utilizing the deductions provided.

If Harry Reid, or any Left leaning folks here, were starting their Utopia would they choose 100 non paying folks or those who are on the take over someone who can generate income and jobs. (probably yes, and then ask someone else to support the 100).

They just don't seem to understand a basic math issue. Regardless of what happens to Medicare, Social Security, or roads and bridges - if you continue to reduce the pot of payers and increase the pot of takers; the house of cards will tumble. You'll continue to get votes from the takers and eventually have total control over nothing.
