Equal Pay for your Vote

Just a couple of quick examples of how Republicans believe business should behave during this election cycle.

Mitt Romney in a conference call to the ultra-conservative National Federation of Independent Business:

I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope — I hope you pass those along to your employees. Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and your kids as well.

Vote for me or lose your job. Nothing illegal about that.


Citigroup (one of Romney’s small businesses) CEO Vikram Pandit resigned last week and walked off with a nice retirement package of $261 million. During his tenure, Citi lost 88% of its value.
