How Mitt Romney Pays So Little In Taxes
[Nation of Change] Mitt Romney and other plutocrats like him won’t like any economic reforms because they’d eliminate the humongous profits they’ve enjoyed at the expense of the rest of us.
Reich explains how Romney and his ilke use private equity funds to bankroll their bets on the stock market. Win or lose these fund managers win and win big at the expense of ordinary people who invest their hard-earned salaries.
