The Republican field takes shape

This is what the good citizens and political junkies are supposed to do:

We see the race unfold like the NFL play-offs.

So I sat in front of my TV watching the first presidential debate due to the impressive Republican Reagan library in Simi, California. There were potential candidates, all aligned on the scale of one-size Air Force One that hung over the audience of enthusiastic Republican supporters.

Looking at the field, it is hard to believe that anyone but Mitt Romney could be elected president. Last month Michelle Bachmann favorite is a strange woman, a former IRS attorney who raised five of her own children and 23 foster children, while dutifully obey her husband gay professional advice to "pray away the gay."

Michelle is the Queen Gaffe, getting all mixed up about Elvis Presley, the Battle of Concord and many other things that do not matter but do not stop talking and do evil. Oh, and also says that she can make gas cost $ 2 a gallon - it's that simple! Also nut to be president.

Bachmann became the favorite after favorite right Donald Trump's ex withdrew after admitting that President Obama "probably" is a Native American. That and the TV rating sweeps period had ended, and did not need more publicity.

The new favorite is Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who just positively hate Social Security and Medicare and say they are "failures" should be "returned to the states." Rick loves to execute criminals (the public loves the Republican Party, too!) And you think U.S. senatorsshould be chosen by politicians in each state and not elected directly by voters. Hmmmmm.

Perry, the Republican candidate? Obama can not be so lucky.

One thing that all the Republican candidates seem to agree that taxes should be raised in the working poor. I hear over and over again. Each candidate says it's wrong that 47% of Americans pay no federal income taxes. Everyone should have "skin in the game" when it comes to paying income taxes, the GOP candidates all say.

But who are these people? They are the working poor. People mowing. Serving lunch and pump our gas. Butter bagels and sweeping floors. Ensure our children and elder care in nursing homes. This is the backbone of America.

How can you be in the best interests of the nation for these people to pay more taxes? We're already paying a higher proportion of their income on the federal payroll and state taxes on sales of her millionaire average. Why would anyone want to raise your taxes? Just do not understand.

From the Republican debate held at the Reagan Library, I just want someone said it was Ronald Reagan who created the Earned Income Tax Credit, which reduced taxes for lower-income workers. It is a pity that all the Republican candidates who claim to be like Reagan has a different view when it comes to help - or hurt - the working poor.

There is no doubt that fiscal policy will be a central issue in the 2012 elections.

One side wants to raise taxes on the working poor. The other wants to raise taxes on the wealthiest 2% of the United States. Let's see how this debate develops.
