Jon Stewart Explains Republican Mitt Romney
- Jon Stewart: It's like putting ten percent down on a car, then using the value of that car to get another loan and repay yourself that ten percent and and maybe a little twenty percent... on top for your troubles and then walking away, leaving the car on the hook for the payments.
- But, for Bain Capital to borrow money from other people, knowing that those debts might never be repaid, while still profiting themselves, I don't know. I don't know how I feel about that business practice. Does it make anyone else uneasy?
- [video of Romney]: I think it's simply immoral for us as a nation and as a generation, to keep spending more and more money, by borrowing money from other people knowing that those debts will never be repaid during our lifetimes.
- Stewart: I don't know who that ruggedly handsome guy is but I agree one hundred percent. So there you go and his pitch to Americans seems to be, elect me as your president. I have twenty five years of business experience doing something I believe this country should never ever do.
Gretchen Carlsson, village idiot of Fox and Friends, attempting to explain why the poor in America should pay even more in taxes, when they can barely pay their taxes now.
Can she just get off her high horse and her head out of her butt? Not everyone in America is a millionaire. Is she that censored and oblivious from real American reality?
People are losing their homes, struggling to pay their bills, having a hard time and wondering when the next time they eat is. And Retching and her delusional Fox News cohorts think that 47% of Americans don’t pay any taxes? They want the dirt poor to pay more?
What a bunch of greedy stuck-up bastards!
How about they switch places with the poor for a change? Then maybe they would start reporting the news the way it is actually happening.
I still can’t believe they’re bringing out that old chestnut of bullshit and asshattery. 47% of Americans don’t pay federal income tax… they pay federal payroll tax, on their income. Which is paid at the exact same rate, through a different channel. Also, Social Security taxes are disproportionately heavy on the 99%, since they are capped. So, when RNCResearch says that the average tax rate in America is 11%, they neglect to point out the extra 20% that I pay, and most of you pay, and that Mitt Romney only paid on $110,000 dollars, which cost him $13,652.40. In Mitt Romney terms, peanuts. Oh, and Medicare tax works the same way. So, here’s the truth to remember: Every statistic, fact, and figure that you hear from Fox News, Pew Research, or the Republican National Convention, has been doctored into a lie, spun into a lie, cherry-picked into a lie, or it started out as a completely fabricated lie.
