Before now, I have had a hard time figuring out why a business background like that of Mitt Romney would be useful in the White House. It has recently become clear, however.
Business is all about efficiency. Romney, who loves to fire people who aren’t doing what he needs done, plans to fire the 47% of Americans who are not producing. Those drones can then self-deport, leaving us—well, them—a nation of producers.
Of course, some of those 47% are now working for the 53%, so some of the people whose tax rate is only 15% may have to begin doing actual work. But I’m sure Romney has a vision of how this will work out in the end.
