Romney pledges ‘real change’ that will end partisan gridlock
Question of the Day
“He is trying to bring everyone together,” said Ruben Rodriguez, 50, a retired Army infantryman after a Romney appearance in Colorado Springs. “He is not trying to divide. That is an attractive message.
“I believe that Barack Obama is splitting the nation in half between the haves and don’t-haves,” he said. “I believe that the nation has to be able to prosper in order to uplift the people that don’t have, so they have the opportunity that those people don’t have and he can do it.”
At a campaign rally outside Columbus, Ohio, Keith Stokes, 89, said he is worried that he will be forced to give up his 160-acre farm because the inheritance tax — otherwise known as the “death tax” — is scheduled to rise from 35 percent with a $5 million exemption per estate to 55 percent with a $1 million exemption at the beginning of next year.
“I don’t know if I should die on Dec. 31 or Jan. 1,” Mr. Stokes said bluntly. “It has to be changed, and Romney says he wants to do away with the death tax. That would be good. Do away with it. We are going to lose the farm.”
Mr. Romney told supporters Sunday that “we’re almost there” and pleaded with them for “one final push.”
“We’ve known a lot of short nights and long days, and now we’re close. The door to a brighter future is there. It’s open, waiting for us,” he said.
“I need your vote, I need your work, I need your help. Walk with me. Let’s walk together. Let’s start anew.”
