In Case You Forgot, Mitt Romney Doesn’t Care About Poor People
Mitt Romney used to sort of not hate poor people, back when all the frothy-mawed rabid conservatives were looking the other way. Now, though, Mitt is pivoting like the big-shot management consultant he used to be (before he had to let himself go, for efficiency). This means the time has come for America's underclass to start making some sacrifices,in the form of an even more stagnant minimum wage, for the political survival of their future billionaire overseer. Look, you want a job, don't you?
Cataloging Mitt's sundry spins and flips is very busy (MINIMUM-WAGE?) work but steady:
As recently as January, Romney said he was in favor of a hike in the minimum wage. "My view has been to allow the minimum wage to rise with the CPI [Consumer Price Index] or with another index so that it adjusts automatically over time," he told a staffer for a labor-backed group that supports a raise. And he confirmed that stance last month, telling reporters: "I haven't changed my thoughts on that."
Romney took the same position as governor of Massachusetts, an office he held from 2003 to 2007, and as a candidate for president in 2008.
PIVOT, PIVOT AWAY FROM TAXACHUSETTS!
[A]fter conservative outcry over his support for raising the minimum wage, Mitt Romney quietly reversed his position this week.
"There's probably not a need to raise the minimum wage," the Republican front-runner told CNBC's Larry Kudlow on Monday.
Of course there isn't, that would get in the way of Mitt's mission to win this Game of Thrones. [Yahoo News]
