Mitt Romney's Campaign Cancels Staffers Credit Cards In The Middle Of The Night

The next time you have the misfortune of hearing a Wall Street titan or other one-percenter whine about how their trickle-down contributions are not appreciated by the masses remember this tidbit, courtesy of Garrett Haake at NBC:

From the moment
Mitt Romney
stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

No doubt a whole host of Boston taxi drivers found themselves stiffed when it came to tips early Wednesday morning. That’s what happens when the money trickles up, not down and it’s why healthy economies don’t depend on the trickle down whims of overlords. The minute Richie Rich decides he doesn’t need all that stuff staff … well, that’s that.

In case you are wondering, this did not have to happen. The Mitt Romney for President entity does not end with Romeny’s Tuesday night loss. There are papers to be filed with various federal commissions and bills to be paid ….'

But clearly not the taxi bills belonging to some of those most loyal to Romney. Maybe that’s what you get for taking a job with a multi-millionaire who boasts about the fact that he sneaks popcorn into movie theatres in wife’s handbag, so he doesn’t have to pay inflated concession prices for a snack.

Well at least its his own money or money provided by sponsors.

Contrast with his decision with the BC government paying $7 million for ICBC severance.

That is the difference between the left and right. Money wasted by big government comes out of every taxpayers pocket. There is no accountability by when it comes to money. Businesses on the other hand have a bottom line. If they can't make a profit they go bankrupt. The government just prints more money.

Some of you are simply jumping to this because it's Romney. Let's leave it at this: if I got fired, I'm not expecting my boss to pay my transit ride back home, nor is there an onus for my former boss to do so.

Is there any possibility that there was an automatic cut off date set on the cards? If Romney had won the election, he could have extended the coverage if he wanted to?

Idk, just a thought.
