I Like To Fire People: Romney Made $20,000 For Every Worker He Laid Off

Samantha 2012/06/18 21:26:28
A lot can be said about a man and how he makes his money. You have those who add wealth by creating things – Henry Ford falls into this category. Then you have people like Mitt Romney, he invests money, that’s it! He then tells the industrialist, like Henry Ford, to lay off workers, in order to increase his own personal wealth.

Well, Mitt Romney has profited handsomely by laying off people for his own personal gain. In fact he made, $20,000 per laid off worker.

In an article by The Street.com they break down how Romney profited immensely off the suffering of his fellow American citizens.

So, as Romney tours the country, telling Americans he knows how to create jobs better than President Obama, remember how he became so wealthy.

Here is the breakdown from the article:

• American Pad & Paper: Bain invested $5 million in the small paper company in 1992, and reportedly collected $100 million in dividends on that investment. AMPAD went bankrupt in 2000, laying off 385 employees.

• Dade Behring: Bain Capital invested $415 million in a leveraged buyout in 1994, borrowed an additional $421 million, and ultimately walked away with $1.78 billion. Dade filed for bankruptcy in 2002, and 2,000 workers lost their jobs.

    His "I like to fire people" is out of context and quick google search will prove that. As for Bain Capital, just like any other business, it has its ups and downs: it saved companies and it also couldn't prevent companies from ultimately closing their doors.

    So, Gordon Ramsey swoops in to a failing restaurant and turns them around, but not all of his attempts are successful. Some restaurants still had to close their doors even when he gave them all new equipment, new chefs, new decor, new menu, etc... That is just how life works.

    Obama is bankrupting America to the tune of $46,000 dollars for every man woman and child. You must be proud of Obama?

    I hope your children are as successful as Romney; they will have to be to pay the debt they owe.

    Everything Romney did in his business career was what any good businessman would have done.

    Think before you post stupid stories!

    It's so funny when you make an assertion and don't post supporting evidence. If Romney is, as you claim, the quintessential American business man, then my argument is there's something seriously wrong with American capitalism.

    Each taxpayer to owe $1 million by year's end

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Barack Obama and Senate President Harry Reid held a press conference today to announce that they have almost reached their goal of spending $1 million of each taxpayer's future earnings.

    "We knew we could do it," Pelosi said. "According to the U.S. Debt Clock, we're at about $988,000 per taxpayer right now in unfunded liabilities, and that number is going up every second. But we have some big bills coming up, and if we can get the carbon tax bill through, we should easily reach the $1 million level by year's end."

    Reid said Americans should take pride in having good enough credit to allow them to buy the goods and services they want.

    "It's kind of like owning the biggest house and the nicest car in your neighborhood," he said. "Everybody knows you don't actually own them; the bank does. But you get to live in the house and drive the car, so owing them is better than owning them. At least that's the way I see it."

    Obama said U.S. citizens should pat themselves on the back for reaching the achievement.

    Each taxpayer to owe $1 million by year's end

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Barack Obama and Senate President Harry Reid held a press conference today to announce that they have almost reached their goal of spending $1 million of each taxpayer's future earnings.

    "We knew we could do it," Pelosi said. "According to the U.S. Debt Clock, we're at about $988,000 per taxpayer right now in unfunded liabilities, and that number is going up every second. But we have some big bills coming up, and if we can get the carbon tax bill through, we should easily reach the $1 million level by year's end."

    Reid said Americans should take pride in having good enough credit to allow them to buy the goods and services they want.

    "It's kind of like owning the biggest house and the nicest car in your neighborhood," he said. "Everybody knows you don't actually own them; the bank does. But you get to live in the house and drive the car, so owing them is better than owning them. At least that's the way I see it."

    Obama said U.S. citizens should pat themselves on the back for reaching the achievement.

    "We never could have done it without enough people voting Democrat," he said.

    He said even President Bush gets part of the credit for signing one of the biggest entitlements, the prescription drug bill.

    "That would not have happened before the American people gave Congress back to Democrats," Obama noted. "It wasn't until 2001 that we started making headway again. And to borrow from Harry's analogy, how does it feel to be living in a million dollar house? Pretty cool, huh?"

    Assistant Treasury Secretary Owen A. Lott-Moore said few people understand what an unfunded liability is.

    "Probably the easiest way to understand it is to think of your household," he said. "Normally you can borrow money only if the bank thinks you will earn enough to pay it back. An unfunded liability would be a debt that is more than your future earnings.

    So it's really like having the biggest house and the most expensive car in your neighborhood, having nothing left over every month after paying your bills and your credit cards, and still buying a million dollar yacht. The only way to make the yacht payments would be to borrow the money. So your debt would just grow every minute and never get any smaller.

    "The miracle of the federal government is that now you can buy that yacht by throwing in your lot with all other taxpayers. The government goes and buys a yacht for everybody, and then the government takes out the loans to make the payments.

    "You still owe the money, but everybody knows you won't pay it back. Your children and your grandchildren will have to do that. And if they don't want to pay, then they had better vote Democrat, too, so that they can continue to take out loans to pay their debts."

    Coauthors of Freaky Obamanomics, B. Trina Rock and A. Hart Pleiss, said the Obama Administration has decided to use inflation to solve the government's spending problem.

    "The president wants gasoline at $100 a gallon," Pleiss said, "and once he succeeds, prices on everything will go up so much that a million dollar debt won't be that big a deal."

    Chief Republican Economist Max Little said the problem with inflation is that wages typically lag behind the prices.

    "Once Obamanomics gets seriously under way," he said, "you'll need a raise at noon to pay for a bus ticket home. And then you'll need to negotiate a raise before you arrive in the morning so that you can buy lunch.

    "The last time we had inflation, it pretty well emptied my bank accounts. The interest I was earning wasn't keeping up with inflation, so my savings kept going down and down. I finally pulled out all my money and bought 1,000 Farrah Fawcett posters. By the time I sold them all three months later, they were worth twice as much.

    "If inflation gets that bad again, I'll probably buy some Lady Gaga posters. They ought to go up in value, don't you think?"

    White House economic forecaster Crystal Ball said that her calculations predict that inflation would lead to more government spending.

    "If gasoline goes up, we'll need to increase the budget of every governmental agency," she said. "It will cost more to count spotted owls, build bridges to nowhere, pay farmers not to grow crops, deport undocumented aliens and clean up oil spills. Taxes will have to go up fast. Don't plan on paying off deficits anytime soon."

    Recently retired GMC truck assembler Penn Sean Ure said he decided on early retirement when federal stimulus money saved his union pension.

    "My goals now are fishing and going to movies," Ure said. "I certainly didn't want to get stuck working for the Government Motor Company in case the government goes broke."
