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?

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.
