I’m really on a roll…


I wish I weren’t on a roll, but somehow I’m fired up tonight. Nothing drives me more nuts than when people spout what they think are facts, only to show their ignorance and how misinformed they really are. Don’t listen to me-  here are the experts, listen to them. And the experts don’t mean you and they don’t mean me, unless you’re a top economist. I’m not.

The Tax Policy Center
The Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank, recently concluded that Mitt Romney’s tax plan is mathematically impossible without raising taxes on the middle class.
Josh Barro
Bloomberg View columnist Josh Barro wrote in a recent column that the six studies that the Romney campaign uses to claim the candidate’s tax plan is mathematically possible “individually and collectively…fail the task
Ezra Klein
Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein wrote in August that “the Tax Policy Center’s analysis has removed all doubt” that Romney’s tax plan is mathematically impossible.
Below is a quote from a REPUBLICAN who supports Romney-
David Frum
David Frum, contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast, recently wrote: “Romney’s tax cut plan doesn’t work. I’m a Republican, I support Romney, etc. But you can’t cut that much in such a stagnant economy and expect to break even. Even with a deductions cap, it just won’t happen.”
Catherine Rampell
Catherine Rampell, economics reporter at The New York Times, wrote of the the Romney campaign’s tax promises in a recent blog post: “Not all of those principles can coexist so long as basic arithmetic survives.”
I could continue, but I won’t. Come to your own conclusion.

First and foremost, I'm a baby boomer and damn proud of it. The ones reading this post survived. Some didn't..We are the generation that crashed through barriers, broke through the norm and made our own rules. We paved the way for others to follow their bliss. One of the largest breakthroughs was probably equal rights and opportunities for women. Thank you Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. We burned our bras, well, most of us did. We marched against politics we didn't believe in, staged protests not knowing we could easily be silenced by a bullet, experimented with drugs, meditation and guru's. We traveled with backpacks across the country and throughout the world..We had a voice. We had a choice. We had a mission. We had freedom and we were united. I am a writer, traveler, explorer, observer and participant in life. I am part of the expansion of baby boomers who still believe in the original message of peace and love. Take this journey.with me. Who knows where it will take us next ?
