Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Mitt Romney, based on just on his taxable income of 13 million, earned $52,700 PER DAYin 2011...

when he woke up each morning!

Now I don't mind that so much....

but when he dares call 47% of Americans moochers,
when the average family income is $45,000 PER YEAR....
and he appears appalled that folks expect something like food when the
economy was taken over the cliff by policies he supports,
I get mad all over again! Grrrrrr!

(Note: Those stats were spoken about on a talk show tonight)

5. And he is still making $$$$

He is not campaining for free. Win or lose, after the election
he is going to laugh at us. His snark we all love to hear.
He can easily afford to tip his underlings an amount that
takes us five years to earn.

4. Behind every great fortune is a great crime.

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink," Mathew 25. Obviously a part of the bible Mitt doesn't read.

Contrast his stolen wealth to this: Mississippi now ranks worst in the nation with 31.8 percent of children living in poverty, and worst in the nation in child well-being. For every 100 families with children in poverty in the state, only ten now receive TANF cash assistance. In 200910, according to the CBPP, there were 117,327 families with children in poverty, and just 11,773 TANF cases.

He's a very rich man who wants to live in a very poor country.

6. "Earned" is probably not the right word...

I would say...received.

8. How much income did he have to invest to receive those dividends and captial gains?

I don't think this has been discuss much. There is no way in my opinion that he is only worth about $250 billion.
