That's correct, you and Mittens couldn't be more alike!
"I actually disclosed in a financial disclosure statement all of the assets which I own, and I think the estimate in there was a pretty wide range, it's been widely reported and my net worth is within that number," he said. "It's between $150 and about $200-and-some-odd million dollars, I think that's what the estimates are."
That is a direct quote from Mitt back in January. He thinks
his net worth is somewhere in the 100 million. I'm the same way, not sure what where net worth stands, somewhere in the $8000 -$8500 some odd dollars. That's not in the millions, that in the thousands. Do we count money that people owe us? If so, I have a friend that owes me $45.00 that I've sort of written off.... that would increase my net worth however.
With all of Willards money he must
have economic experience, right? Remember when he stood up in Detroit and told us about his jobs plans, that was the same speech where he told us that Ann has several Cadillac cars. In that speech he began to lay the groundwork for his big economic recovery. He proposed cutting individual marginal income tax rates by 20 percent; reducing the corporate tax rate to 25 percent, from 35 percent; eliminating capital gains taxes for people with incomes below $200,000; abolishing the alternative minimum tax and the estate tax; indexing the eligibility age for Medicare to longevity; allowing private insurers to compete with Medicare; eliminating Obamacare and reducing federal spending to 20 percent of the national economy by making "hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts," including to programs like Amtrak and Planned Parenthood. I feel sure the Amtrak comment was meant to be a stab at VP Biden. After all, Joe feels much to much like a "regular guy" which his train riding ways.
Tell me if I'm wrong, but none of these plans sound like they'll create jobs. In fact, many of them sound like people will be put out of work. Indeed, Mr. Etch-a-Sketch said back in November:
We have to cut back on the scale of the federal government. And for me that will start by reducing federal employees by 10 percent. You do that through attrition.
And then something else that is just as important, and that’s to make sure the people who work for government don’t get better pay and better benefits than people that work in the private sector.
This he said in that speech where he tried to convince voters that he was also unemployed. A cringe inducing moment for sure.
So, just a quick recap, 'cause this could all change today when he gets asked any question:
Romney is super-duper rich, "money" is in his name, but he's a regular unemployed guy just like many Americans.
He has a plan for restoring the economy that Obama f*cked up. This plan includes giving tax breaks to the wealthy and firing a whole bunch of Federal workers.
He plans on putting people back to work, see above.
And he wants you to remember that he's a regular guy just like you and me. He wears Jeans from Tommy Bahama and work shirts from A/X and eats the same foods we eat, even if they're from the 7-11 store (which I'm guessing he goes into quite often). He drives one of his many cars, or has his driver drive one of his many cars, just like us! He flies his horses to the Netherlands for that dancing number, and didn't you just fly one of your horses somewhere? How is that stable of yours by the way?
Yep. He's a regular guy. Now, I've got to go change the cat litter. I'd have Consuela do it, but I can never seem to find her.
