In all the excoriating of Mr. Romney’s “gift” comments from both the right and the left; the one criticism that has not been leveled against this monstrously narrowminded view of electorates seems to be that Mr. Romney was ALSO proposing “gifts” for his coalition of voters he was assembling.
What do you call the list of his economic proposals other than a “gift” for the well off? Repealing Obamacare, repealing Dodd Frank, more tax cuts for the wealthy, increasing Defense expenditures (which is essentially a pork for the MIC), reducing regulations from the EPA; what is all this EXCEPT a ‘gift’ to the wealthy?
And even a person with a high school math education can read the CBO scoring of his proposals (which are essentially the Ryan plan) and figure out that this will only massively INCREASE out debt! Why is no one calling out Mr. Romney for his hypocrisy along with his stupidity?
