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. Thatâ€™s what happens when the money trickles up, not down and itâ€™s why healthy economies donâ€™t depend on the trickle down whims of overlords. The minute Richie Rich decides he doesnâ€™t need all that stuff staff â€¦ well, thatâ€™s that.
In case you are wondering, this did not have to happen. The Mitt Romney for President entity does not end with Romneyâ€™s Tuesday night loss. There are papers to be filed with various federal commissions and bills to be paid â€¦.
But clearly not the taxi bills belonging to some of those most loyal to Romney. Maybe thatâ€™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 wifeâ€™s handbag, so he doesnâ€™t have to pay inflated concession prices for a snack.
The theater I worked for allows you to bring drinks (no cans, no glass, no liquor) and snacks (just no actual food). No sneaking necessary. I'm not paying $8 for a bucket of popcorn or $6.50 for a large drink. Lol even if I had the millions, I wouldn't pay those prices.
