    Right-Wing Billionaires Behind Mitt Romney | Politics News | Rolling Stone

    What He Wants To pollute for free. Koch's fortune is tied up in some of the nation's dirtiest industries. He blasts the EPA, which has been trying to crack down on carbon pollution, as "hyper*aggressive."

    What He Wants Plans to store radioactive waste from 36 states in an underground dump in Texas; has been sued repeatedly by the Justice Department for failing to clean up contaminated Superfund sites.

    What He Wants Perry's top issue is "tort reform," which would limit the size of jury awards against homebuilders who do shoddy work.

    What He Wants A lucrative defense contract.

    What They Want Bill has publicly backed immigration reform to create a legal pool of foreign-born workers for their hotels.

    What He Wants To screw taxpayers. Like Romney and many hedge-fund managers, Conard profits from the "carried interest" loophole that allows him to pay half the tax rate that others do on the same income.

    What He Wants Fewer consumer protections. The FDA has rebuked Melaleuca for making "false and misleading" claims about its supplements

    What He Wants No federal restrictions on Wall Street gambling.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    The list goes on and on. Republicans will say, "But Democrats have billionaires".

    Yea, like Gates who wants to end Malaria

    And Buffet who, get this, wants to raise taxes on billionaires.

    See? EXACTLY THE SAME.

    I think the right wing wants to snatch away the "Number One" crown from China. Because of pollution, they are number one in birth defects. Republicans feel we can beat them if we just get rid of that awful EPA.

    The one that wants the leader to sell his soul to the devil is Soros. I'd hate to be indebted to him the way liberals are.

    I sure hope that enough billionaires want Romney in the oval office, enough to get rid of Obama.

    If they didn't care they would be supporting Obama's status quo.
