Yesterday, if anyone had any doubt between the policies of Republicans and Democrats, it was made very clear when Mitt Romney released some numbers on his taxes after being pressured by other wannabe presidential candidates.
It is now official! Romney’s income is among the top 1 percent of all Americans who pay less in taxes than the average American making $50,000 to $100,000 who are paying much more. His secretary, maids, pay more in taxes.
And in his words, he only made $360,000 in speaking fees, “But not very much”, in his words. Damn, MItt, my heart goes out to you, a man worth more than $250 million thinks he’s underpaid, yet a working person making $10 an hour is being squeezed to work more for the same, no insurance or benefits; that seems to b e ok with Republicans. Seems like a level playing field for me….if you are a Republican!
Like Donald Trump whose father left him a small fortune to start him on his real estate empire. Romney’s father was the chairman and president of America Motors who also like Trump never knew what it was to do without.
How can these guys associate with the working person, or have compassion for a person without a job and benefits when they haven’t been there?
If you think Romney as president, who says his Super Pacs will raise $350 million to get him the Republican nomination will give a hoot about the working class, let me know because I have a bridge I will sell you…cheap!
