Let's rewriter the "Romeny Rules"

The online clearinghouse for Democratic Action

Dear James,
Mitt Romney's been playing by a different set of rules from the rest of us. His tax rate is half that of your average American, and he's stashed the difference in offshore accounts from Switzerland to the Cayman Islands. As CEO and sole owner of Bain Capital from '99-'02, he received $100,000 a year in salary for a job now he claims he didn't have at a company whose decisions he refuses to accept responsibility for.
The Romney Rules are a double standard, plain and simple. They let Romney argue that the basic guarantees of healthcare and a secure retirement are "free stuff you don't pay for," then turn around and tell reporters that talking about his six figure non-job is off limits and no, you don't need to see his taxes.
Here's the bottom line: Mitt Romney thinks the country should answer to him. We think our elected leaders should answer to you. When you make a $15 recurring donation to ActBlue, you're preserving a space for Americans from all walks of life to make their voices heard in the corridors of power.
Mitt Romney would prefer to put in a bouncer. So please:
Support ActBlue
From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.
