Mitt greedy? No he's not greedy. That is why he creates all of those jobs. He's generous.

Why, since he left Bain Capital he has continued to pay less taxes, because of the "carried interest" loop hole, just so he, like all of the other job creators, can keep creating those jobs. So, we should ignore Bain Capital. Look at all of the jobs Mittens has created since then. He created jobs in the Cayman Islands. He created jobs in the Switzerland. How many jobs was that in the Cayman's again? Help me with that? And then there were all of those that he created in Switzerland. Why right here alone there must have been, how many? A thousand? a hundred? one? There must have been at least one? Possibly more.

Didn't a limo pick him up at the airport in Zurich? Yeah, and then there was the bell boy that carried his bag with the cash he came to deposit to his room. And room service! How about that? So, you see. That's how job creation works. Twenty five million here, to be deposited, twenty five million there and just look at the jobs. Greed no, I call that generosity. You gotta admire that.

Wonder how many job creators like that it would take to create those twenty million jobs they say we we need? Got any idea? Hmmmm?

Breaking news: A review by the Los Angeles Times/Tribune Washington Bureau found that at least 23 funds and partnerships listed in the couple’s 2010 tax returns did not show up or were not listed in the same fashion on Romney’s most recent financial disclosure, including 11 based in low-tax foreign countries such as Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg.

Well thanks. I can sure understand failing to disclose this. I have several accounts strung around the world with small amounts like $3 million or less, that I have completely forgotten about. So, I completely understand. And, I will understand when several other disclosures of accounts and investments are finally rediscovered.

What really disappointed me were the disclosures that he was contributing to "fix the guys" businesses and advocacy organizations like Massachusetts Family Institute and that nowhere did it explain how many jobs he created in the UBS bank in Switzerland ($3 million) or in Bermuda, or the Cayman Islands or the rest of the 11 accounts. We really need to know how many jobs he created in all of these places. Job creators shouldn't be so modest.

Exactly. What's wrong with him?

[-] 1 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

I am sure we will all be impressed when he shows us exactly who is in the jobs he created with all of the $millions he was allowed to keep so that he could create jobs with it. Then we can see how little it costs to create jobs that way, rather than creating them by increasing demand for products and services, like those Nobel prize winning economists keep urging us to do..

He just needs to help us out so we can justify joining his team.

well lets see one job here + three in Zurich + at least two more in Switzerland and cayman so we got something like 6 jobs per millionaire divided by the 20 million jobs they say we need.. ah, hang on just doing the math.. AH hm. Ok, we need roughly... 3 million job creators.

WOOHOO! quick someone tell the FED

edit: ah, darn. I was not taking into consideration the out of country jobs. Looks like we will need closer to 20 million job creators.

Well you got the numbers right but there are these things called fractions and at least three of these are part time so fractions come into play, but if you round up....Yeah, I guess you are right. Three million, hmmm and we have only 400 that already own half of all of the wealth in the US. Shoot, in order to create that many creators we are going to need more wealth. Where can you buy that stuff?

shoot don't ask me, I ain't got none, I'm just poor middle class folk. Well if there ain't nowheres to go but down.. damn.. that scares the hell out of me actually. What's that ole Shakespeare says, oh yeah "Tempt not a desperate man".

Words for the 1%ers to live by, well done.

Yes, that is correct. I heard it on the Radio yesterday. The tax on "Carried Interest" is like 15%. It applies to the kind of consulting or other work that Messeur Romney does for Bain Capital.

  • It seems pretty clear that there is a loop hole here regarding the "Carried Interest" earnings and Tax Rate. The correct Tax Rate should be At Least 25%!

It is a way they can convert earned income to dividend income. Only works for vulture capitalists, hedge fund managers and private equity guys. Not for simple working folk. Besides they wouldn't know how to open an account in the Cayman's or Switzerland anyway. Probably just blow the savings on something silly like food or school tuition or a visit to the Dr. without insurance.

We'll soon find out ;) I'm voting for him.

Should read McCain's research on him before he picked Palin. http://www.scribd.com/doc/78582788/McCain-2008-Oppo-File

McCain's choice makes more sense now. A little.

You can vote for him, but you won't find out ;-)
