It gets better, Willard picks this guy who defends outsourcing, praises income inequality AND paying more for gas:
Romney-economist Greg Mankiw wants a further $2/gallon gas tax?
Posted at 11:44 am on March 8, 2012
As the price of gasoline soars, top Mitt Romney adviser, Harvard economist Greg Mankiw sticks to his guns and calls for a hike in gasoline taxes. In a recent blog post, Mankiw points to a WaPo column which states:
N. Gregory Mankiw, former top economic adviser to President George W. Bush and current adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, also backs a stiff gas tax increase… In a New York Times column this year, Mr. Mankiw offered a tax overhaul that might include a gas tax “exceeding” $2 per gallon.
I don’t think that’s going to be too popular. It’s not clear from that snippet that he’s adding an additional $2 on top of what’s already there, but if that’s what he’s proposing, Romney’s got some explaining to do. Not much more to that post, but good snark at the end.http://twitchy.com/2012/03/08/romney-co ... n-gas-tax/
Former Romney Partner At Bain Makes Case For Outsourcing
By Rebecca Leber on Jul 15, 2012 at 11:00 am
Mitt Romney’s former company Bain Capital has a spotted history of investing in companies that offshored jobs overseas to countries like China. At the same time Romney blasts outsourcing on the campaign trail, calling President Obama “outsourcer-in-chief,” his former partners at Bain have defended the practice.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes,” Romney’s former partner at Bain Capital Edward Conard made the case for outsourcing jobs, which he argues in his book, “Unintended Consequence”:
Watch the video: Meanwhile, Romney’s top economic adviser Greg Mankiw has also argued for outsourcing jobs, calling it “a good thing.” As another Bain manager explained, “I never thought of what I do for a living as job creation.” Romney’s role at Bain was to create wealth for his firm, not jobs.http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/ ... tsourcing/
RightAs long as Willard and Greg can make millions from sending jobs to China and India, outsourcing will be “a good thing.”
And of course conservative tea bagger imbeciles will agree.I bet mr grape agrees: outsourcing American jobs, bankrupting companies, and destroying pensions, is “a good thing.”
