He Should Know


Okay, so no one lies all the time:
"Big business is doing fine in many places - they get the loans they need, they can deal with all the regulation," said Romney, speaking to a group of supporters at a private fundraiser in Minnesota.

Romney then added that the reason that big businesses are "doing fine in many places" is because they are able to invest their money in "tax havens."

"They know how to find ways to get through the tax code, save money by putting various things in the places where there are low tax havens around the world for their businesses," said Romney.

For making a similar statement, Obama was jumped on with both feet by Rs, including Mitt. To be fair in ways Mitt wasn't to Barack, The Rominee was trying to say it's small businesses that need help, although, as usual, he didn't specify much about what he had in mind. But it's pretty clear, isn't it, that since what he mainly learned at Bain and what made him very rich was how to make use of those very same offshore tax havens, he won't be doing anything about those loopholes, now, will he? And since his pal Paul Ryan has claimed he can balance the budget simply by closing as-yet unnamed loopholes, it doesn't leave a lot of room, does it?

As usual, the satirists are the truth-tellers.
