You and I think disaster relief is about saving people's lives. But Romney thinks that "corporations are people, my friends". He believes that using FEMA to provide disaster relief for PEOPLE is immoral. But what he really wants to do is to take your very hard-earned tax dollars and donate it to -- you guessed it -- corporations:

A lot of people just can't imagine how disastrous a Romney administration would be, and what it would mean for them in very real and practical terms. But Hurricane Sandy just gave us an object lesson on the differences between disaster relief done right, and the horrors that "compassionate conservatism" meant for people on the ground during Katrina. This video will help people to see that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    You know how I can tell that corporations and the rich can pay higher taxes? Because they can afford to buy politicians ... MinistryOfTruth

    but a little long, perhaps, for the average attention span.

          that I'll now edit down to 2 minutes. I won't have enough time to do both, but I can still change the next one (Romney's NEW 911). Thanx
