Portland's Mayor Apparently Gave You All Plenty to Complain About This Year
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.
