    WASHINGTON -- For a woman with three houses and sixteen grandkids, Ann Romney doesn't have very much help around the house, according to her 2010 tax return.

    IRS forms released Tuesday by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign show that despite reporting income of $21.7 million, the couple paid only $20,603 in taxable wages for household help in 2010. This figure was divided among four women: Rosania Costa ($4,808), Kelli Harrison ($8,667), Susan Moore ($2,238) and Valerie Cravens Anae ($4,890).

    I know this might be very difficult for a leftist like you to understand, but I believe that Ann Romney is incapable of simultaneously staying in two or more of her homes at the same time. If she can, then we can add "magician" to her resume', right below "stay-at-home mother of five sons".

    I also believe that Ann Romney probably does not have all 16 of her grandkids with her at the same time, except maybe for special occasions. I don't believe that the Romney's have a "compound" like the Kennedys used to have.

    So if you took every job and divided it by four, you would never have to pay insurance or anything else. Because all the workers would be "part time". Good deal.

    Yep. It's called PART TIME WORK you moron. Not all jobs come with a big salary, benefits and a 401(K). If you ever ran a business you'd know that.

    I suppose Romney's social responsibility is to hire 4 people to do part time work, but pay them eack 100K with full benefits, right?

    An hour or two to clean 3 houses? I am sure they are all small as well.

    I have one maid/housekeeper. I paid her 25K last year.
    I paid her husband about the same to manage my farm. And helped them both with vocational education tuition. And bought major medical ins for them. And provided them a vehicle. And provided them a home to live in on my property rent free.

    And I sure as hell do not make 12 mil per year.
    And just have one house about 2k sqft.
    And under 200 acres under farm.
