Skip to comments.Romney: $40 Would Make a ‘Substantial Difference’ to American Families
Posted on 12/22/2011 12:02:39 PM PST by TBBT
LANCASTER, N.H. Mitt Romney today said that the $40 many Americans would lose if the payroll tax holiday isnt extended would make a very substantial difference to those who would be without it. Itll be the difference between having a meal that includes meat or just Hamburger Helper, said Romney in an interview with ABC News John Berman aboard his new campaign bus in northern New Hampshire. It could be the difference between being able to take your family to McDonalds at the end of the week. It means the difference between being able to go to a movie or not going to a movie. It makes a real difference to the American people, he said. WATCH MORE FROM THE ABC NEWS INTERVIEW WITH JOHN BERMAN ON WORLD NEWS AT 6:30 P.M. EST. Romney said that he believes both Republicans and Democrats need to sit down and work out a deal regarding the payroll tax extension, and that it was time to put the sausage in the sausage grinder and come out with a bill that provides an ongoing payroll tax holiday.

For some reason, the memory of Bush the elder's discovery of that fascinating new gizmo called a bar code scanner at the check out line comes to mind.
Mittens thinks that Hamburger Helper is the second cook they hire when they give a lawn party at this estate.
4 packs of smokes
Very few of the people this is really aimed at make anywhere near enough to be paying $40 a week in “payroll taxes”. I am talking votes.
about 1/4 of a Mitt haircut
Typical Romney idiocy!
Anyone but Romney and Paul
Doesn't it still require hamburger?
Isn't hamburger ground meat?
Whether you agree with the Republicans in the House or not on this issue, he's not going to make any friends among conservatives by stabbing them in the back and repeating Obama's rhetoric. He should have just kept his big mouth shut.
2 lap dances.
Mittens makes me want to barf! Where is the beef?
If Romney were worth anything, we would be hearing about it in spades about way more than $40....
How about rippping Obama apart? Never happen.
How about our borders? Never happen.
How about national defense and the military? Never happen.
How about his conservatism and the judiciary? Never happen.
The list goes on.
How in God’s name, is he going to debate Obama and survive the pile of lies he will be facing?
Let’s see, I have Newt’s phone number here somewhere.....
Is the gov’t handing out lap-dance stamps?
But I guess the $204 extra dollars per year in fees that anybody purchasing or refinancing a home won’t hurt anybody at all, eh Mitt??
That’s the same rationale for the minimum wage. If $40 means a difference, why not $80?
When effing politicians wann argue about 40 bucks with We the People..well that’s OUR fault they think they have any say whatsoever about our 40 dollars!!!
What about the extra 4K extra I paid for gas in 2011?
Romney is only trying to keep up with Obama.
How many do you know earning that much the rely on hamburger helper to survive?
That stupid bastard doesn't even know how out of touch he is.
That story about Bush and bar code scanners was a lie. He wasn’t impressed by bar code scanners...he was impressed by a new type of scanner that could read torn or damaged codes more accurately. The reporter who ran with it decided your version better fit the “Bush is out of touch” meme that they were using to get Clinto elected.
But hey...if you want to carry Newsweek’s water, who am I to judge...
Pay no attention to the extra $2,000 you paid in gas this year. Or the upcoming big spike in electricity bills, thanks to Obama’s EPA.
What a joke Mittens is.
