Ah, the irony. Mitt Romney chastises the 47% of Americans who pay no federal income tax.
On the other hand, one of the Republican platform planks calls for further federal income tax cuts. That plank, of course, would increase the percentage of people who pay no federal tax.
I have a message to those of you who pay no federal income tax.
You know who you are: The poor, the elderly, the disabled, those of you trying to exist on two or three minimum-wage jobs, and those of you who lost their jobs and maybe even their houses.
I say, shame on you.
