  •  Let us not forget Mitt's definition... (2+ / 0-)

    of free enterprise:

    Bain takes over a company using borrowed funds, pays its own Bain executives huge fees and bonuses for their genius, fires many of the company's workers, guts the firm's pension funds (and leaves the federal government to clean up the mess) while walking away with millions in profits.
    That IS an enterprise, but my strong feeling is that it out to be classified not as free, but as criminal.  

    Sorta like the definition of free speech (Citizens United) and free markets (see below.)

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.

      If a person named "Matt Romeni" instead of "Mitt Romney" takes over a company, runs up bills on the company's credit, and declares bankruptcy, screwing the creditors and walking away rich, he would be in jail under the RICO laws.

      Where are all the jobs, Boehner?
