Do you see the parallels between the NFL referee fiasco and Romney's economic outlook ?
Consider that the NFL referee lockout is not about salary, but more about pensions and the way that loyal and skilled workers are treated. (Shades of Walker in Wisconsin, as well) The citizens (football fans) are shown a much lower quality product as a result of the replacement referees, while still paying top dollar for tickets.
And why? So that 30-some football team owners can get richer.
To me, the parallels are huge. The owners don’t care about the fans, just like Bain didn’t care about the ultimate customers when Romney closed a company.
The owners don’t care about the referees or other football employees – they are just an annoyance that cost money. Sort of like how Romney laid people off without a worry when he LBO’ed a company.
Football, at least in this instance, is a microcosm of politics, and a very good look at what Romney-nomics brings.
