Mitt Romney Fortune Relied on Corporate Welfare Via Tax Breaks and Subsidies

So, Mitt Romney benefited from welfare after all — corporate welfare, that is.

Los Angeles Times: A reports how Mitt Romney, “during his business career, made avid use of public-private partnerships, something that many conservatives consider to be ‘corporate welfare.’ It is a commitment that carried over into his term as governor of Massachusetts, when he offered similar incentives to lure businesses to his state.” “Yet as he seeks the GOP presidential nomination, he emphasizes government’s adverse effects on economic growth.”

Um, do as I say, but not as I do, unless you are fabulously wealthy, right Mitt Romney?

    Janet I get a big kick out the “GOTCHA”  tid bits that you and many bloggers both on the right and left love to publish. They are neither revealing or earth shattering, since both sides are doing it. Both sides waste their precious  time trying to find dirt on the OTHER side as they bicker back and forth.
    Wouldn’t it be more productive to question the party one favors and to let them know that their votes shouldn’t be taken for granted. That if promises are not kept, that you can just as easily vote for the other party.
    In my 40+ plus years of voting I have voted for people from both parties. I never cared if they were black or white, male or female, gay or straight. I voted for who I believed was the best candidate.
    And to show my displeasure I would vote for a 3rd party candidate as I did in the last presidential election.
