Wow. So, let's all not do what Romney did...instead do your own taxes and pay some taxes that you are not supposed to pay? Why not do the smart thing and hire a good CPA or Tax Lawyer to recommend you pay the PROPER TAX. That is not tax avoidance, it is paying you proper tax including all allowable deductions. And, if your CPA says you should put some of your money overseas...since when is that illegal? Bill Gates and Bill Clinton (who is married to our Sec of State) have overseas accounts and I don't see anyone jumping all over the Clinton's on this issue.
Also, I am not hearing from Conservatives that THE SKY IS FALLING. Just that we are on the wrong path. Small business, the backbone of the growth in jobs, is continually being hammered by this administration with new taxes and a health care bill that will force many businesses to lay off more people and ship even more jobs overseas. With growing unemployment at 8.2%, up from June, we are headed in the wrong direction and if Obama has his way, you will see even more unemployment as the tax consequences of Obamacare kick in after this election. No we are not Greece YET.....but we sure are headed in that direction. What we need is full employment so that more people are paying taxes and less are on welfare. That has proven time and again to be the way we ALL prosper as a country. More taxation DURING A RECESSION will only kill more jobs and is not what we and small business owners need.
