3 Questions Mitt Romney Will Never Answer

Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.


You might like to get answers to these questions. You might think the American public deserves answers to these questions before November 6. But you won’t get them anyway:

  1. Gov. Romney, what tax loopholes will you propose closing to make up for the tax cuts on the rich that are part of your economic plan?
  2. Your Medicare plan is based on Paul Ryan’s and relies on competitive bidding to bring down costs. But what if the bids all come in above your growth cap of GDP + 0.5 percent? Who pays the difference? Seniors?
  3. That 13 percent you say you paid in taxes over the past decade—that’s federal income taxes, right? And it’s based on AGI?

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
