1. Let's be clear on where this $ comes from.

If the Romneys got a tax abatement (a reduction in the property value and thus $ back) it came from the pockets of every citizen in La Jolla, every taxpayer. Each year, municipalities establish as "Overlay Account" which is funded by taxpayer $ and used to pay for rebates to property owners who get abatements. So Mitt got $ from folks probably a lot less well of than he is. Also, the next year after the abatement, the municipality would have to raise more tax $ from taxpayers to cover the reduction in value of Mitt's home. This guy is sucking off the public tit.
