This Should Be an Eye-Opener – Van Jones Group and Unions Putting Up Anti-Romney Billboards… Why? Because They Know They Can Beat Gingrich

Rebuild The Dream (Van Jones) Putting Up Anti-Romney Billboards!

I just received my email from Rebuild the Dream and it looks like they are going to give Newt Gingrich and all other NON ROMNEY candidates a helping hand. How and Why? Well, take a peak at this newsletter and perhaps you will get as big of a chuckle out of this as I did. I am still laughing! Go put up the billboards RTD and we will thank you for it later! 🙂

Wow. Just hours before the president called for fairer taxes in the State of the Union address, millionaire Mitt Romney released his tax returns, revealing that he paid a tax rate of just 13.7% on more than $45 million of income.

That is grossly unfair, but these kinds of outrages disappear from the headlines after a few days all the time. We can’t let the Romney Loophole become old news, and we need to keep the pressure up on Congress.

Rebuild the Dream is planning to put up billboards in Washington, D.C. with bold headlines proclaiming, “CLOSE THE ROMNEY LOOPHOLE.”

The billboards will help keep this tax fairness issue at the center of the debate in Washington. But to get them up, we need to raise $50,000 in the next few days. There are thousands of us reading this email. If we chip in just a few dollars each, we can reach our goal. Can you help?

Hours after we all learned about Mitt’s low tax rate (and his Swiss bank account), the president called for fairer taxes including a new minimum tax for millionaires and no higher taxes for 98% of Americans.

That is good, but the tax debate is going to be as tough this year with the Tea Party in Congress as it was last year. We can put the opponents of fairer taxes on defense if we all do our part. Can you chip in?

Thanks,
Natalie, Van [Jones], Billy, Jim, Ian, Somer and the rest of the Rebuild the Dream team

Wake-up Peeps… Team Obama is afraid of Romney and are creating this whole Gingrich phenomenon because they know Newt has too much baggage and the the independents won’t vote for him and we are playing right into their hands.

This is another one of of these “the truth doesn’t matter” campaigns  on Team Obama’s part.  They want to run against Gingrich… not Romney!

The Truth About Romney’s Taxes:

As Dennis Miller explains:

Romney (the wealthy) pay 35% corporate taxes. Then they pay 15% capital gains taxes (again, a second bite of the apple on that same money) if it is invested, plus money given to charity and his church. And then when he dies they hit his family with a huge estate tax.

50% of Americans now pay ‘no’ taxes at all. So who is not paying their fair share. Think about it… don’t let the muckrakers convince you of things that aren’t true… or it will hurt our country and economy in the long run.

Also: Gingrich admits ABC claim was false

After nearly a week on the defensive, CNN’s John King reports tonight that Newt Gingrich’s claim about offering witnesses to ABC News in his defense — to rebut the network’s interview with his second wife, Marianne Gingrich — was not true. “Tonight, after persistent questioning by our staff, the Gingrich campaign concedes now Speaker Gingrich was wrong — both in his debate answer, and in our interview yesterday,” King said on tonight’s edition of John King USA. “Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond says the only people the Gingrich campaign offered to ABC were his two daughters from his first marriage.” An important victory for John King in his ongoing effort to justify last Thursday’s confrontation.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
