Someone Claiming to Be Ann Romney's Nanny Says Ann Romney Really Did Never Work a Day in Her Life

Posted by Paul Constant on Fri, Apr 13, 2012 at 2:44 PM

Please, let's do keep this ridiculous narrative going for another day, shall we?

“Juanita” calls into Current TV claiming she worked for Ann's wealthy family as a cook and babysitter. Says she and Mitt were “nice,” but confirms she “never worked a day in her life.”

There's video of the, uh, phone call, right here. Let me state this as plainly as I can: The issue, here, isn't whether anyone works hard. The issue, here, is whether people are paying their fair share. If I pay 20% of my income and Mitt Romney pays 20% of his income, that's a vastly different burden. Just because the numbers are the same doesn't make it fair. And when you throw in the fact that Romney pays far less than 20% of his income in taxes and I probably pay more than 20%, it becomes even less fair.
