    Why I can't vote for Romney

    What Romney believes!

    1 Reducing taxes and regulations will create jobs. This was the policy under Bush that took our country from a budget surplus to a budget deficit and failed to sustain a vital growing economy.

    2. Only those individuals currently covered by medical insurance should be covered for pre-existing conditions.

    3. Competition between the insurance companies will reduce medical costs. Isn’t this what we have today for everyone under the age of 65? Have you premiums gone up and health care improved?

    4. The current Social Security system should be changed to allow individuals to invest their retirement funds in the stock market in hopes of getting a higher return. How much money would you have lost if you had sold the stocks in your retirement fund at the bottom of the recession?

    5.You believe that higher income earners (those in the top 10%) should pay taxes at lower rate than Warren Buffet’s secretary or the average wage earner.

    6. Taxes and regulations, not the lack of demand, were the major cause of the recession.

    7. That the banking and financial industry does not need to be regulated. What do you think caused the housing industry to collapse and the banks to need financial aid from the government to survive?

    8. Women should be paid less than men for the same job.

    9. That the United States should increase its military spending even though the U.S.
    already spends more on defense than the next 13 countries with the highest defense budgets.

    10 That companies are people and should be allowed to make unlimited political contributions without disclosure.

    It is your vote. This former Republican is voting for Obama

    • romney is not going to win because he is a cultist, and he hogtied a dog to the top of his car and drove at an alarming, reckless speed through rush hour traffic in the rain.

      I think the real reason is your felony convictions for child molestation.

    • The current healthcare system needs to be revamped. Obama care gives you a couple of carrots such as preexisting conditions, dependent coverage yet doesn't address the root problem and as you will see actually enhances the problem. The medical community and the insurance companies are working hand in hand to build an expensive system. The health care charges outrageous amounts for services which in turn lets the insurers charge outrageous fees. If you look at the bills the insurance company never pays the full amount of the bill. By having a large pool of money from which to draw the medical community can charge whatever they like. If the doctors and hospitals had to negotiate with the patients and didn't have this artificial pool of money to draw from costs would be much lower. Obama care just throws more money into the pool by illegally forcing everyone to participate and letting others in on the gov't dime. This is systematic government interference with free market and a result of serious lobbying (bribes) from the medical and insurance industries.

      The cause of the depression was multiple. Barney Franks in his infinite narcissism thought that everyone should be able to buy a house whether they can afford it or not. Sallie Mae and Freddie followed the leader, That other democrat idiot whose name escapes me was supposed to be watching the banks for some unknown reason (bribes i suspect) i mean lobbyists let the derivative market go unchecked.

      Obama has chosen to go to war with capitalism bring back the concept that the "man" is responsible for all the issues in your life. The "man" in turn is afraid of what this socialist idiot may do next and is circling the wagons hoarding cash and downsizing their companies not knowing what will come next.

      Russian socialism lasted for 60 years. American Capitalism for 230.
      I agree Obama inherited a mess but he hasn't helped it any.

    • Obama means economic disaster.

    • Obie not competent to wash dishes at the coonchickeninn 4 more years and you will be bankrupt

    • your #1 and #2 are void

      Reducing taxes and regulations will create jobs. This was the policy under Bush that took our country from a budget surplus to a budget deficit and failed to sustain a vital growing economy.

      Not at all correct. the last 3.5 years of bush's term our countries GDP was double what it is now, job creation was huge (7.5% or better) unemployment wasn't as bad, national debt was UNDER 1/2 of what it is now (even AFTER the crash) The crash came from bad policies in the banking industry, nothing else!!

      2. Only those individuals currently covered by medical insurance should be covered for pre-existing conditions.

      This is how the current plan is/ always has been.. ITS THE LAW. Obama suckered you in, this is what his plan has been for the past 4 years. He could have changed that as it is

    • Speaking as one who's wife had a pre-existing condition, who spent over $400,000.00 plus to keep her alive for over 4 1/2 years the republicans will never get my vote again. Of course to add insult to injury I just lost the rest of my savings in AAPL's fall from 700.00 Me a loser, no I will get by, push carts if I have too, America and American's are the losers who don't show proper caring for their fellow citizens.

    • Can't vote for a non-christian.
      But I'd vote for him if he converts.

    • For me it's simple. Obama didn't qualify to be president the first time as proven by his performance over the last 4 years. I am voting against Obama because I believe the nation may never recover from 4 more years of irresponsible governance, absentee leadership and reckless spending. Win or lose, I'm not convinced we'll recover. Add this to the obvious cover-up on the abandoning of our own heroes on American soil in Libya and I feel that any level of trust afforded to Obama was misplaced. So I am voting for Romney because it's the only path open to me in the hopes of defeating Obama.

    • 11. Women should give it for free.
