The Huffington Post | By Alana Horowitz

The Washington Post's editorial board mocked Mitt Romney's tax plan on Sunday.

"Mitt Romney, the presumed Republican nominee for president, promises to lower everyoneís income tax rate without reducing revenue. This sounds terrific. Why didnít we think of it sooner?"

The editorial, titled 'Mitt Romney's garbage', argued that Romney's plan to cut taxes and lower the deficit is unfeasible.

"Itís reasonable to assume that his cuts would, as did President Bushís, worsen the nationís deficit. Until heís willing to explain how he would avoid such a result, he has little standing to criticize Mr. Obamaís fiscal shortcomings."

The piece also took issue with Romney's claim that his plan to cut taxes by 20% for everyone helps the middle class and not the rich.

A recent study found that Romney's plan would mostly benefit the wealthiest Americans. Romney called the findings "garbage."

"You canít simultaneously lower tax rates, take in as much money as before and protect the middle class," the Post editorial board wrote.

The editorial echoed comments made by President Obama earlier this month. Obama called Romney's plan "Romney hood... like Robin Hood in reverse."

What is WAPO's tax plan? I guess we would need to see it to get an idea of what they think or would consider not "garbage".

Your question is too stupid to even bother to answer!

Read the damn post! Use the links.

Additionaly, don't re-write the title!

In fact, why not just get out of the thread right now, since we both know all you are looking for is another immature argument!

That's what TROLLS do.

LOL, no I am not going to leave due to your bullying. As far as answering my question, I never expected you to answer it. That is not what you do here, you just run your mouth.
