Voters should beware

Voters should be very wary of the Republican tax plans. They say they're going to reduce taxes for everyone and cut the deficit at the same time. Yeah, that sounds mathematically impossible. Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and his vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan say they will do so by closing various deductions. But they wont' specify. Look for Republican plans to end middle class tax deductions like the home mortgage deduction.

Folks, this is what happened in 2010. The Republicans swept into power. And in the various states, there were movements to end public unions. Nobody was campaigning on union killing laws here in Ohio. And in some states like Virginia, no Republican made it his platform to have women seeking an abortion to have trans-vaginal ultrasounds. So if the Republicans take over the Federal government, be afraid. They will pass right-wing legislation. Regressive tax plans. And look for intrusive anti-abortion legislation. That's why you should vote Democratic.
