"Restore Our Future!" Whose Future is Romney and His SuperPAC Talking About?
Restore our future! Romney wants you to believe he's talking about your future. Right? Rather..Correct? I'm sure.
That's why his SuperPAC, "Restore Our Future" is taking millions in donations from America's wealthiest people.
Their future may not be as prosperous if Obama gets 4 more years.
The wealthy like things the way they've been. They pay nothing and they dump the burden of paying for services and roads on the middle class.
After all, wealth has many privileges, especially when you can buy your own legislators and pass the "laws" that benefit you by increasing your wealth.
Romney knows that the Presidency is for sale.
He asked America after Scott Walker's win in Wisconsin, "Didn't America learn anything?"
For those of us that keep fighting for fairness,apparently not.
The most recent Forbes' article reveals who supports Romney's "Restore Our Future" SuperPAC.
Count 'Em: 30 Billionaires Now Backing Romney's Super PAC
"When the Supreme Court handed down its historic decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission on January 21, 2010, some legal analysts and political commentators warned that it would, in effect, open the floodgates for unlimited campaign contributions from corporations. Others championed the decision as a victory for free speech.
Democratic congressman from central Florida, Alan Grayson, said that following this decision, “only huge corporations have any constitutional rights... They have the right to bribe, the right to buy elections, the right to reward their elected toadies, and the right to punish the elected representatives who take a stab at doing what's right.”
"Restore Our Future is a political action committee (PAC) created to support Mitt Romney in the 2012 U.S. Presidential election. A so-called Super PAC, Restore Our Future is permitted to raise and spend unlimited amounts of corporate, union, and individual campaign contributions under the terms of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision."
These "Kings" don't want to share power with their subjects.
Restore Our Future, Mr. Romney? Whose? Ours or Yours and your billionaire contributors?
