ROMNEY WILL RAISE TAXES ON BLIND, DISABLED, AND SICK PEOPLE, IF ELECTED

Romney doesn't care about American Citizens.
Romney doesn't even know any average American citizens.
Romney will lose the election.
All the Above.

As Socialist Governor of Massachusetts, Romney created 33 new fees, and raised 57 existing fees in order to increase revenue. Romney raised job-killing fees for small business, including hair salons, nurses, plumbers, home inspectors, and realtors.

According to John McCain's failed 2008 campaign:
  • Romney raised state fees and taxes more than $700 million per year, according to independent experts.
  • Romney raised fees by roughly $500 million in his first year alone, a figure that was highest in the nation.
  • Romney quadrupled gun licensing fees and raised fees on first responders, real estate transactions, the blind, golfers and many others.
  • Massachusetts’ state and local tax burden rose more than 7% during Romney’s administration.

The McCain campaign is wrong in claiming that fees were raised for the Blind, but Romney did push for the creation of a state issued "Certificate of Blindness," at a cost of $10, and a photo-ID version for $15.

"Romney proposed a fee on mentally retarded citizens of $100 to pay for an intake assessment at the Department of Mental
Retardation. The assessment was previously free. The test was to
determine their eligibility for state services. The legislature rejected
Romney's proposed fee."

"Romney proposed a $50 fee for tuberculosis tests and wanted to charge a $400 fee if the person tested positive."

Romney has not claimed to feel any differently about proposing those fees, so he must feel the same way. Fortunately, Romney will not win the election, but what do you think of Romney targeting Blind, Disabled, and Sick American citizens?

    I think Romney really tries to care, but at the end of the day, he has no idea what he's talking about.

    I stated that Romney had done Massachueete very bad and I wish I would have had this info on hand when someone asked me the bad things he had done. The republicans don't even kow the true Romney or they don't care.

    They don't read and one of the people told me they didn't have time to read all of the info that at least Romney isn't a socialist Muslim. I informed them that they don't know Romney if they don't investigate and He might try and tax them out of existence.

    ...if this is only your opinion there is no way that you can say that Romney "WILL RAISE TAXES ON BLIND, DISABLED, AND SICK PEOPLE". That, my dear, is a statement of fact. Which you have told others is only your opinion, not a fact.

    Well I created a post asking for anyone who was living in Massachuette under Romney to tell me what kind of governor he was. Well the majority of those who answered the poll stated that he was terrible and caused the economy to go out of balance. I was not there so I can only go on what others stated

    Most of that stuff can not legitimately be claim as an action BY Romney. But can be attributed to the legislature, as they are the ones that pass the bills.

    It is very hard to actually support factually that the positions were proposed by Romney to the legislature.

    While the National Review is a respected publication I have two problems with the article. 1. It is a secondary source. 2. It is clearly an anti Romney piece.

    Now if there was a document that shows directly that Romney was the author of these provisions. Many of which are nothing that other states have done as well.

    "I don't think he recorded these bizarre proposals on paper, he merely proposed the ideas to the legislature"

    Then, as I suggested, there is no evidence.

    How about the last 4 years, TARP 2 and all the deficits. Add Obamacare to that.

    Romney ruined Massachueete if I believe those who lived under him when he was governor. The fact that he signed one of the first gay marriage bill is not relevant right?

    So Obama is responsible for Mass and then you think Romney should do for the country what he did for Mass. ? Actually you have to ask the people of Mass they might not think so
