Romney's Numbers Job
Mitt Romney might not be able to settle on the jobs number he finally means to lie about to the American people, but you can be sure about some numbers he is absolutely firm about as will be the Republicans in Congress who will have his back... Number of women who can end an unwanted pregnancy? ZERO. Number of lesbian and gay folks with the same rights as other citizens? ZERO. Number of people who can get insurance if they have anything that might be construed by some executive as a "pre-existing condition" or who can count on their insurance being there for them if they actually get sick? ZERO. Likelihood that financial fraudsters whose recklessness brought about the world recession will have any regulatory oversight at all? ZERO.
