Come off it. Almost everybody pays taxes. You just haven't included the Payroll Tax. As for who's freeloading - we all drive on tax funded highways and we eat tax supported food. We buy cheap gas thanks to tax funded aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf. Many corporations don't pay any tax at all thanks to (other) taxpayer supported loopholes and credits. Romney has to get his figures straight. He probably does understand (but doesn't mention it) that if we get rid of allot of government spending - medicare, medicaid you name ii, the services will still be needed. They will be privatized. That might work if we had really free competition. Corporations will kill off the competition.and charge more to make their profits.
