how did you like Romney' tax plan.........I would think you would approve.

Good morning Mr duma,

What tax plan would you be referring to? I don't recall seeing one, unless you are referring to that half plan where he knew the rates he would cut but couldn't explain how he would actually limit deductions to offset the loss of revenue.

It sure sounded nice but in away it reminded me a bit of a younger Mitt and his "plan" on a different subject.

Perhaps you are aware that during the Vietnam war Mitt was a strong supporter of the idea (plan) of young men fighting and dying for his country. So much so, that as it turns out he actually participated in pro-war rallies. Unfortunately, when the time came to implement part 2 of the war plan (the equivalent of giving up these unspecified deductions in his "tax plan") Mitt didn't see the need to step up and make the personal contribution required.

So yeah, I guess you could say I liked the sound of his plan, I like flag waving as well, but perhaps you can understand when I say once bitten twice shy when it comes to Mitt.

Or to put it another way, talk is cheap. :<(
