Matt Taibbi Explains Why You Should Hate Mitt Romney Even More Than You May Have Hated Him Yesterday

by Kris E. Benson

Hello, Matt Taibbi, how are you making us hate Mitt Romney even more today than we did, say, yesterday (which is saying a lot since we had to sit through his forty minute speech about himself yesterday and also a slide show about him and his kids, blagh). But as you will soon discover, making us hate Mitt Romney even more isn’t terribly difficult!

 You just begin by explaining the nuts and bolts of how Bain Capital destroyed several companies by loading them up with debt, and then you go into detail about how Bain partners made tons of money, much of it off government “handouts” even while laying off thousands of workers, and then you top it all off by pointing out that political and financial journalists have been unwilling or unable to explain any of this to the American public.

Thank you, Matt Taibbi, for exposing not only the incompetence of the American pundit class, but also the features–rather than bugs–of the corporate tax code that allow people like Mitt Romney and Incorporated Americans like Bain Capital to happen to all of us.
We should first say that we love Taibbi’s entire article and encourage you to trot on over to Rolling Stone and read the whole thing (and then come back here, of course). But the main point of it can probably be extracted from these gems:

[When taking over a company] Romney and Bain avoided the hostile approach, preferring to secure the cooperation of their takeover targets by buying off a company’s management with lucrative bonuses.
Once management is on board, the rest is just math. So if the target company is worth $500 million, Bain might put down $20 million of its own cash, then borrow $350 million from an investment bank to take over a controlling stake.


But here’s the catch.
When Bain borrows all of that money from the bank, it’s the target company that ends up on the hook for all of the debt. Now your troubled firm – let’s say you make tricycles in Alabama – has been taken over by a bunch of slick Wall Street dudes who kicked in as little as five percent as a down payment. So in addition to whatever problems you had before, Tricycle Inc. now owes Goldman or Citigroup $350 million.
With all that new debt service to pay, the company’s bottom line is suddenly untenable: You almost have to start firing people immediately just to get your costs down to a manageable level. “That interest,” says Lynn Turner, former chief accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission, “just sucks the profit out of the company.”

“The thing about it is, nobody gets hurt,” says [former KB toys employee] Lenny Patnode. “Except the people who worked here.”

Luckily, Mitt likes firing people who provide services to him, so this isn’t a big deal. HA! HA! HA! Seriously though, it does underscore the fact that Mitt’s primary private sector experience has been in an industry where he takes none of the risks and reaps all of the gains. Also, it should be worth nothing that even though he was a Job Creator, there is no mention of Job Creating in Bain’s mission statement. But that’s ok!
 Because Mitt didn’t so much make his fortune off firing people; he made it off evading avoiding taxes:

But the way Romney most directly owes his success to the government is through the structure of the tax code.
The entire business of leveraged buyouts wouldn’t be possible without a provision in the federal code that allows companies like Bain to deduct the interest on the debt they use to acquire and loot their targets.

This is the same universally beloved tax deduction you can use to write off your mortgage interest payments, so tampering with it is considered political suicide – it’s been called the “third rail of tax reform.” So the Romney who routinely rails against the national debt as some kind of child-killing “mortgage” is the same man who spent decades exploiting a tax deduction specifically designed for mortgage holders in order to bilk every dollar he could out of U.S. businesses before burning them to the ground.

Because minus that tax break, Romney’s debt-based takeovers would have been unsustainably expensive. Before Lynn Turner became chief accountant of the SEC, where he reviewed filings on takeover deals, he crunched the numbers on leveraged buyouts as an accountant at a Big Four auditing firm. “In the majority of these deals,” Turner says, “the tax deduction has a big enough impact on the bottom line that the takeover wouldn’t work without it.”

Oh how nice. So basically, this tax deduction means that the government incentivizes the kinds of leveraged takeovers that made Romney into a millionaire and costs thousands of people their jobs. But don’t worry! Given that debt is such a pressing concern for people who aren’t Mitt Romney or in the business of private equity, he has a running mate with a plan. And the plan is that you people all retire a few years later and give up your Medicare, and people like Mitt will plug on ahead, job creating.

Romney is a Wall St corporate looter.  Wall St jews let him get a little bite of the pie, just enough for him to establish credit as a "successful businessman".  But note (in re my post from yesterday) that Romney not only refused (in foreign policy debate) to promise that 'an attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the US' & also refused to promise to support an Israeli attack on Iran.

Now Maybe my English isnt quite as good as yours, as I just graduated from a public high school,  but I think when Romeney said:    ‘If Israel Is Attacked, We Have Their Back Not Just Diplomatically, But Militarily’  That means/implies full support to attack Iran if IsraHell is attacked.

The overseas blood diamond traders will expect something in return for their 156M, he's got the backing of the Las Vegas mob. The other one has the Chicago mob behind him, these puppet shows can be hard to follow. I see the purple gang playing every side, everywhere! One thing for certain, the fix is in, what ever it is.

"Have their back" is street slang & in top-level diplo-speak means little.  Romney didn't give the NATO-style pledge, didn't offer Israel any new weapons systems etc.  Sure he would probably go along with an Israeli-instigated war, as would Obama, but nonetheless both resisted Bob Schieffer's goading into blanket pledges to Israel.

Both candidates trying to simultaneously placate jews/zios & somewhat skeptical public.  But I find it interesting that in the Prez debates there was at least that hint of reluctance to "fully" support Israel but OTOH on Fed/banksters there was zero talk other than Obama's lame fussing about Warren Buffet's low tax bill.

Buffet's and Romney's incomes come from interest, not from labor; they are both bad examples(1% of the 1%) for the new law to tax investment income at a higher level. Why is it bad? Because it means that all investment income will be taxed at a higher level and that includes all of the middle class.

What's going to be left after it's been double and triple taxed? It was taxed once as earnings and again on the corporate level, and now it will be taxed a higher level as interest income.

Yes, all this tax crap helps to create layers of class warfare & distract from bigger picture.  More taxes and/or inflation won't dig us out of the mess of FIRE-based economy.  Romney completely ignores our decrepit infrastructure & Obama gives mere lip service--his London-directed "green energy" policy is worse than doing nothing.

They trot out two hand picked zio-puppets for us to pretend to choose between, and then they run the pretend votes through their pre-programmed computer voting machines.

Why would they have to do that? Romney and Obama are both acceptable choices.

Because they like to make plans in advance and properly train the next puppet president to be - probably the mulatto with the inkjet printer birth certificate, Malcolm X Jr aka Barry this 'n that, the long legged mack daddy, again.

They wouldn't even let Ron Paul participate in their ersatz election.  They wouldn't even count his votes.

Not to mention that they changed the rules ON THE SPOT at the GOP convention. Was a big deal for all of 5 minutes, when it should really be enough to warrant a revocation of any campaign financing to the GOP. (Not that the Democratic[aka Communist] Party is any better.)

Anybody else amused by the ostensible "party unity" behind Romney? Lots of (phony)conservatives, TeaPartiers, and whack jobs like Rush Limblow couldn't STAND this guy a few months ago. I just have to laugh.

Obama has proved his worth to the bankster overlords thru massive Wall St bailouts, creating many new wars esp in Pakistan.  Romney seems to be no better but as far as Wall St/London goes, "if it ain't broke...".  Plus having a "black" Democrat helps push the austerity better.  Dumb po' folks can convince themselves he's trying but mean Repub congress won't let him.
