Mitt’s Marxism

CREDIT:

Mitt Romney, apparently forgetting for a moment that he’s running as a psychotic rightwinger, slipped back into the Reasonable Moderate mode I recall from his winning 2002 gubernatorial campaign and told a Davenport audience “I like the idea of linking the level of support that we’re able to provide to young people going to college to the contributions they’re going to make to our society.”

Needless to say, Cato’s Neal McClusky fired back with the suggestion that Romney may be a “closet Marxist.” We all know, after all, that before Stalin had consolidated power fully he greased the skids for the Gulag system by proposing a student loan forgiveness program.
