Have you seen this? Outrageous!
Americans for Inequality endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, in a New Hampshire event on Monday, according to a press release issued on its Facebook page.
In the 2012 Presidential campaign, Americans for Inequality has been the first organization to educate voters about the benefits of vast inequalities. Americans for Inequality has been a pioneer in changing the narrative away from the costs and perils of inequality---and toward a new appreciation of how inequality plays an important and beneficial role in our economy.
“For far too long the poor, unemployed, and elderly have been coddled by America’s generous welfare system and exempted from contributing their fair share in taxes, while banks and companies have suffered under an oppressive regime. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan’s budget plan will mostly rely on ending the era of entitlement and providing tax relief for upper-income households. That’s the beauty of the Romney/Ryan plan: the higher the income, the higher the tax break. Their budget plan will ensure that inequality will remain with us, as it should, for many years,” said an Americans for Inequality spokesperson, who calls himself Warren Bancroft.
“Class mobility and opportunity are declining as inequality becomes entrenched, and that’s what we want to see. But there is room for improvement. Job creators do 100% of the work, but from 2009-2011, they only received 88% of the national income. And companies such as Exxon Mobil pay as high as 2% in federal taxes—they need relief.”
"After analyzing the Ryan budget plan as well as other aspects of the social and economic policies of both presidential candidates, we support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan because they will ensure that inequality will remain for some time -- as it should,"
During its first three days of existence, the group's Facebook page has obtained nearly 500 supporters.
And although some of the advocates are in on the joke, others haven't picked up on the satire and are serious endorsers of both inequality and the Romney-Ryan ticket, Bancroft said.
Something tells me this group only intends to "appear" satirical.
