Princeton professor Harvey Rosen Obama misrepresents study of Romney tax plan, Romney plan can be revenue neutral, More Obama lies exposed

“It is time for the Obama campaign to retire this talking point, no matter how much it seems to resonate with voters. The financial crisis of 2008 stemmed from a variety of complex factors, in particular the bubble in housing prices and the rise of exotic financial instruments. Deregulation was certainly an important factor, but as the government commission concluded, the blame for that lies across administrations, not just in the last Republican one.
In any case, the Bush tax cuts belong at the bottom of the list — if at all. Moreover, it is rather strange for the campaign to cite as its source an article that, according to the author, does not support this assertion.”…Washington Post October 1, 2012

From the Weekly Standard October 8, 2012.

“Princeton Economist: Obama Campaign Is Misrepresenting My Study on Romney’s Tax Plan”

“Last night, the Obama campaign blasted out another email claiming that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would either require raising taxes on the middle class or blowing a hole in the deficit. “Even the studies that Romney has cited to claim his plan adds up still show he would need to raise middle-class taxes,” said the Obama campaign press release. “In fact, Harvard economist Martin Feldstein and Princeton economist Harvey Rosen both concede that paying for Romney’s tax cuts would require large tax increases on families making between $100,000 and $200,000.”

But that’s not true. Princeton professor Harvey Rosen tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD in an email that the Obama campaign is misrepresenting his paper on Romney’s tax plan:

I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work.  It might be that they assume that Governor Romney wants to keep the taxes from the Affordable Care Act in place, despite the fact that the Governor has called for its complete repeal.  The main conclusion of my study is that  under plausible assumptions, a proposal along the lines suggested by Governor Romney can both be revenue neutral and keep the net tax burden on taxpayers with incomes above $200,000 about the same.  That is, an increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral.

You can check the math that shows Romney’s plan is mathematically possible here.”

  1. Since the usurper knows nothing about growing an economy, he has a hard time grasping the concept of “revenue neutral”.

  3. Can an Imaginary Man Debate?
    By Jim O’Sullivan

    Put yourself at one of the initial meetings between Mitt Romney and his advisers prior to preparing for the debates. At some point during the discussion, a member of his staff may have said, “How do you debate a fairytale, a myth, a fiction, a make-believe person created by the media…and Obama himself?”

  5. ObamaCare Headed Back To Supreme Court

    On the day Barack Obama signed ObamaCare bill into law, Matthew Staver, the founder and dean of the Liberty University School of Law filed one of the first private lawsuits against the new Act, claiming ObamaCare mandated the forced, direct funding of abortion, a clearly unconstitutional violation of the free exercise of religion.

    Though the University’s lawsuit has been held up by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals which argued that the Anti-Injunction Act prevented the court hearing the merits of the case, that barrier was torn down by the June Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare. As a result, Liberty immediately renewed its petition that the Supreme Court review its case.

    And on Monday, the first day of the new term, the Supreme Court ordered the Department of Justice to respond to Liberty University’s suit. That means the Justices are taking very seriously the Liberty charge that both individuals and employers are being forced to directly fund abortion, a clear infringement upon the freedom of religious expression.

  11. From the Obama weirdville: THE LIZARD KING

    The Politico website has uncovered that two Daily Caller editors, Jamie Weinstein and Will Rahn, will be releasing a new ebook that “delves into [the] Obama lizard conspiracy.”

    “The truth is out there — and it involves President Obama and the lizard men,” Byron Tau writes on Politico’s “44″ blog: “A Living Diary of the Obama Presidency.”

    “In a new ebook, two reporters for The Daily Caller website stumble upon Obama’s ‘intergalactic’ ambitions,” writes Tau.

    The ebook, ”The Lizard King: The Shocking Inside Account of Obama’s True Intergalactic Ambitions by an Anonymous White House Staffer,” will be released October 9.

    “You’re writing this story FOR The Daily Caller?” Tau responded when asked whether he had any further information on the ebook. “Couldn’t you just ask your coworkers? They would know better than I would. I just pulled from the Amazon description.”

    Book Description
    Publication Date:October 9, 2012
    What if every farfetched conspiracy theory about Barack Obama turned out to be true? Two reporters for the The Daily Caller received an unsolicited manuscript in the mail, the diary of a former Obama administration political operative. What they read stunned them. “The Lizard King” describes a White House where the reality is more surreal, and comically bizarre, than anything its most fervent enemies have alleged. Tasked by David Axelrod with debunking right wing rumors about the president, the narrator embarks on a journey that takes him from Washington to Moscow to the tribal areas of Pakistan in search of the real Barack Obama. His findings leave him shocked, his political ideology in tatters and his understanding of the world forever changed.

  12. Why do Americans hate the Obamas?

    Mychal Massie is black conservative and a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles. Massive also has a hard hitting commentary on his web site “Daily Rant” The following is one of his Rant’s

    The other evening on my Twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the

    Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obamas? It
    seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespected) their
    Christmas family picture.”

    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their
    ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve
    made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the
    person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them
    because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

    I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are
    the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt
    for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the
    office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle
    Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

    I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and

    I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of
    our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the
    governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable.

    Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much
    expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using
    that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit,
    mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths.

    They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus
    for civility.

    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the
    case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and Michelle’s code speech pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could comeand not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because

    Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right
    to do same.

    I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because
    they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a
    million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and
    problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly
    $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.

    He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has
    surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist
    academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support.

    He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His
    wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black
    Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn
    them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs,
    their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their
    life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class

    I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public
    condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional
    actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound
    by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has
    everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I
    have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

    It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is
    one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this.

    I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to
    investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are.
    There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his
    wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people,
    as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” –
    “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such
    dishonesty in a political leader.

    He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even
    by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic,
    contumacious arrogance is unequaled.

    Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…
    Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders.

    He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while
    America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”


    From the Chicago Sun Times; What kind of tap dancing will the new U.S.Attorney do to avoid implicating Eric Whitiker?

    “Because the alleged fraud occurred when Dr. Eric E. Whitaker was director of the state’s health department, and Whitaker remains a good friend of President Barack Obama, the president’s opponents will likely try to use this scandal to bolster the narrative that he hails from a den of thieves.”

    I am sure you remember the quote when Winston Churchill was told that Hitler said in one of his speeches that he was going to “wring England’s neck like a chicken”! His answer was simply “Some chicken, some neck!”
    After reading Mychal Massie’s masterpiece on the Obamas, that he has pretty well wrapped up everything in a Nutshell.
    Some nut, some shell!!

    All day today MSNBC is talking about all the lies Mitt Romney has been making in his debate. I prey Paul Ryan asks Biden to just define Natural Born Citizen and then the three things a candidate must have to be elegibile. THWARP

  16. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    PS – The richest cities in the U.S. just came out and guess which is number 1. Of course it is Washington, D.C. which is filled up with politicians, lawyers, and bureaucrats. Ain’t that a surprise!

  17. “MSNBC Goes Rogue: Presidential Debate Was Obama’s Emperor Has No Clothes Moment”

  18. I have a question that should now be on the minds of every American. That question is:

    Will Mitt Romney hold every CRIMINAL in the Obama administeration accountable once he is elected, or will he give them a free pass back into society?

    If Mitt Romney doesn’t investigate and press charges on all that have knowingly violated our laws, then Mitt Romney will be complacent in a massive cover-up of crimes against the United States.

    Someone should be asking Mitt this question.
