Romney and Republicans continue to insult the intelligence of Latino voters almost everyday, but many of us are rejecting Mr. Multiple Choice Mitt or Mr. RomneyCare for reasons given by By Nicholas P. Cafardi. The story he wrote is a gem and the full story can be read on the National Catholic Reporter. As many of you might know, most Latinos are members of the Catholic Church so this is why I am sharing this bit of news from a Tequila Party leader in Nebraska.
This story is a gem especially for those Tea Party hypocrites who say they loathe ObamaCare yet voted in RomneyCare himself. What a crock. As a registered Independent voter in Arizona, I can assure you that I would rather have 4 more years of Obama than 8 Years of RomneyCare.
Love this story and have to share:
But let’s not stop there. Obama does not financially profit from the abortion industry. Romney does. Bain Capital, in the time Romney was listed as its legal head and even when he was attending Bain board meetings, was an owner of Stericycle, a major disposer of the dead bodies of aborted children in the United States. (See: Romney Invested in Medical-Waste Firm That Disposed of Aborted Fetuses, Government Documents Show.) Bain owned a share of Stericycle until 2004, selling its interest for a profit in the tens of millions of dollars. We can parse what Romney’s 1999 “retroactive retirement” from Bain means, but he still gets an annual payout from the firm. To the extent those dollars are part of Bain’s Stericycle profits, a strong argument exists that Romney is an abortion profiteer. How pro-life is that?
And it has long been known that millions of Bain Capital’s original outside funding, solicited by Romney himself, came from wealthy El Salvadorian clans, some of whom, while they were funding Bain, were “linked to right wing death squads.” (Salt Lake Tribune, 1999; See also: Mitt Romney Started Bain Capital With Money From Families Tied To Death Squads.) Death squads killed tens of thousands of mostly poor people in El Salvador. They also killed priests, nuns and Archbishop Oscar Romero. How pro-life is that? How pro-life is taking the money of these people and doubling or tripling it for them? And did any of their Bain profits fund more death squads? Before we endorse Romney’s “pro-life” claims, isn’t it important for us to know that?
So speaking as a temporary, part-time member of the parallel magisterium, I think that if anyone should be disinvited from the Al Smith Dinner, it is Mitt Romney. Based on the above record, he, and not Obama, is the anti-life, “pro-abortion” candidate.
