Review Republican 2011 presidential candidates on taxes

Since Tim Pawlenty presented is plan for a new simplified tax code today, we felt that it would be fair to present a bit on the past views of some of the other contenders for the 2011 presidency.

The following are statements, on the 2008 election trail and in general, that we believe will help to put the other candidates into perspective. It will also serve as a basis for comparison when these same candidates launch their proposals for 2011.

**We do not promote or advocate ANY presidential candidate, nor any election. We only seek to provide information to allow voters to make informed decisions.

It does not matter to us how you vote. We only want you to vote based on an informed decision.**

Rep. Ron Paul – 2008 Presidential election

Rick Santorum – Sept. 2010, Bush Tax Cuts

Herman Cain – New Hampshire April 2011

Mitt Romney – December 2007

Newt Gingrich – May 2007

December 2010

Rep. Michelle Bachmann – April 2011

November 2010

This review is by no means complete. It is not comprehensive. It is simply an overview of some of the statements and plans of several Republican candidates in reference to taxes, tax policy, and the deficit. It is a stepping off point for voters to investigate more on the candidates, and to compare current comments to.

  2. Ashliegh,

    Capitalism allows this blog to exist. And the internet. And the power that runs your computer.

    Seperate of that, the debt of the U.S., just under President Obama to date, exceeds the revenues of most corporations in America combined.

    The influence of unions, and the money they spend on elections, exceeds the GDP of more than a dozen nations (according to CIA World Factbook) – $450 million in 2010 with 3 of the top 5 election spenders being American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and National Education Association—the chief teachers union. Unions outspent corporate america and were 40% of all election spending (vs 15% for corporations, according to the Wall Street Journal and Free Enterprise Magazine).

    Get the reality straight. Corporations may not be innocent, but they are hardly the biggest problem.

Thank you for lending your voice. We appreciate hearing what you have to say.
