Breaking down the bullying business

Dear MoveOn member,

It's official: Mitt Romney is a bully.

He bullied classmates as an entitled high school senior,1 and he bullied workers by wrestling away their jobs and benefits to make himself a millionaire.

We've got a great video from Robert Reich that explains how Mitt Romney's Bain Capital, and other private equity firms, stomp on workers and skip taxes to fill their wallets. It's so good that a group dedicated to defending Wall Street firms like Bain has attacked Reich over the video. 

So let's hit back at them by sharing this video even further to let your friends and family know who Mitt Romney really is, and how he really got rich.

Professor Reich explains that when people in the 1% like Mitt Romney and his fellow private equity raiders scheme to fire people, cut benefits, and duck taxes, the 99% has to foot the bill.

But we can change that. The first step is making sure that as many people as possible know the problem. That's why sharing this video in your social network is so important. Will you share it today?

Thanks for all you do.
