Reich writes: "Now that Mitt Romney is the presumed Republican candidate, it's fair to ask how he made so much money ($21 million in 2010 alone) and paid such a low rate of taxes (only 13.9 percent)."

We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

Excellent simplified analysis of a horrendous manipulation of money that makes me dislike Romney even more -- if that's even possible.

Mitt is used to taking businesses, squeezing the profits from them, and then tossing them aside like a piece of rind! He didn't help repair them, he swooped in like a vulture and picked at the bones until nothing was left! He tossed people from their jobs with great glee! He even said "I like firing people!" He is a cold, callous jerk! He should pay, and pay for more than just taxes; he should pay for the lives he ruined!

Robert Reich's lecture on private equity tricksters was illuminating. I must admit that had I known at the outset that was its sponsor, I should have passed it up. Move-on is, in my view, a trickster, too! It poses as an independent, grass-roots, political organization. I think it is an adjunct of the Democratic Party, for which I have nothing but contempt. The Democratic Party is part of the corporate take-over of our government, its imperialism and its devastation of our democratic (small "d") institutions, such as the Bill of Rights.

I just saw a video of the NYC parade. We will prevail.
