But they want to wait for a dawn after the Nov. 6 election.
Hmmm, OK. Or rather, not OK.
Like 'em or hate 'em, at least the Obama camp is saying which taxes the current prez wants to hike: those on the richest Americans.
That's how 44 will pay for keeping taxes paid by the less-wealthy at the current 10-to-28 percent rates.
Romney and Ryan have said they, too, want to cut tax rates and do so for everybody, including those in the current top two income tax brackets. But there is a bit a difference between the GOP running mates as to just how much tax rates will fall under their administration.
Each man also has said loopholes would be closed in order to pay for keeping everyone's taxes low. But again neither Romney nor Ryan has been specific about exactly which loopholes they would target (aside from a Romney off-the-cuff remark at a fundraiser about axing tax breaks for second homes).
And now Romney and Ryan are saying "trust us" when it comes to tax specifics.
Guys, let me borrow a phrase from one of your party's icons, Ronald Reagan: Trust, but verify.
