(Tea Party PAC) – Sen. Mitt Romney is certainly not making very many friends in the Republican Party, especially after being the only member of the GOP to vote in favor of impeaching President Trump on the wacky charges that the House, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, brought against him just a few short weeks ago.
However, it seems that things are about to get a whole lot worse for Romney, as all kinds of dirt on the man is being dug up and flung into the media as a result of his betrayal, things he probably wishes would’ve stayed buried.
Like the fact he made $20,000 for every American that was laid off from Bain Capital.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who supportedconvicting President Donald Trump in the Senate impeachment trial, profited thousands of dollars every time an American worker was laid off from their job after investments by his firm Bain Capital.
While head of Bain Capital between 1984 and 1999, Mitt Romney helped win giant profits for investors that ultimately left small and medium-sized American companies bankrupted and forced to lay off thousands of American workers.
According to a rough estimate by AOL Finance, conducted in 2012, Romney earned about $20,000 for every American worker who was laid off as a result of Bain Capital’s investments:
Romney himself profited handsomely from his time running Bain Capital. Although the exact details of his personal finances are not available, news reports estimate his net worth at somewhere between $190 and $250 million, much of it derived from his Bain Capital days. Very rough math might suggest that Romney made as much as $20,000 per job lost.
And today, Romney continues to rake in millions from Bain Capital, which is worth an estimated $105 billion. In 2011, the New York Timesdetailed Romney’s retirement package with Bain Capital, which he negotiated before leaving the investment firm.
From 2000 to 2009, Romney profited from Bain Capital’s “four global buyout funds and 18 other funds, more than twice as many overall as Mr. Romney had a share of the year he left,” according to the Times.
In 2011, Romney reported 12.4 million to $60.9 million worth of assets from Bain Capital, which translated to about $1.5 million to $9.3 million in income for him. Likewise, Ann Romney’s blind trust secured the couple at least another $4.1 million in income deriving from Bain Capital assets.
Romney has never really been much of what you’d call a conservative. He’s always been a part of the establishment within the Republican Party, sharing much more in common with folks on the left side of the aisle than those on the right.
The fact of the matter is, a lot of folks have distrusted him from the very beginning. And now, thanks to the impeachment vote and other tidbits of information like this mess with Bain Capital, folks are getting a close look at the real Romney. If this guy still had any presidential aspirations, he should probably flush those directly down the toilet, because it’s never going to happen.
Not as a Republican anyway. Perhaps he’ll defect and join the Democrats? He’d probably be more at home among the rats.
