Attention “nail ladies” and babysitters: You just don’t understand!
On the day before President Obama stood up for an extension of the middle class tax cut and the expiration of tax cuts for the wealthy, Mitt Romney was holding three fundraisers in the Hamptons on Long Island, New York.
At one point, country’s ultra-rich, who drove their Bentleys, Porsches and Mercedes-Benzes to the events, had to sit idle in a line of 30 cars long.
“Is there a V.I.P. entrance?” one woman shouted. ”We are V.I.P.”
With no such entrance available, they were forced to sit waiting to get in, providing the perfect opportunity to pass the time talking to waiting journalists.
That’s when anonymous female passenger in a Range Rover with East Hampton beach permits complained to the Los Angeles Times that ”nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.”
“We’ve got the message,” she said. ”But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies – everybody who’s got the right to vote – they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income – one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”
Where is the V.I.P. entrance, indeed.
