The Tax Policy study you're citing made assumptions based on the vague statements Romney has made about policy. With the lack of cuts programs, cut taxes for the rich and promise to reduce the deficit he has to raise taxes on the middle/working class to make this happen. Maybe you're right and the middle class tax raises won't happen. But then where is that money coming from?

First off, Nazi analogies are obnoxious; they trivialize Adolf Hitler's atrocities. For his part, Burton is not above spewing hate himself. In a radio interview, he told KCBS' Doug Sovern that Republicans are likely to take his remarks as a compliment. Later in the day, Burton issued a statement that stipulated...
