    Finally some sanity from the Romney advisers ... a little late, but better late than never. Obviously they knew this all along, but were playing politics. I expect if Romney had been elected he would have proposed raising taxes on the wealthy. He had no qualms about switching sides often during the campaign.

    I do not subscribe to the Financial Times[/], so I cannot link to the original article.

    Why average and not marginal tax rate? The whatevertheycallit minimum tax which is scheduled to be imposed on most working families would be extended? Starting at what income level?

    "He had no qualms about switching sides often during the campaign."

    Could be true and often enough said, but in all the months of the circus did I see any listing of all these changes.

    Ex may be significant in the "adviser" that proves Romney changed his mind????

    It was all Symantecs anyway. What is the difference whether you raise something (taxes) or change the way you figure something (loopholes) to raise it. It means more money out of the guys pocket that made it going to the guys that have their hands in the rich guys pockets. No matter how you cut it it is big government taking from the rich and giving to the poor only they ain't no Robin Hoods - there isn't anything birdie about any politician.
