Early this week, hurricane Sandy brought havoc and devastation to several Northeastern states. As President, Barack Obama quickly sprang into action along with FEMA coordinating the relief effort. And although as a candidate Mitt Romney does not have the same resources as his opponent, it does not mean he is staying on the sidelines. Here are 10 ways how Mitt Romney has helped those affected by the hurricane.
1) Called for emergency 50% tax cut for the rich.
2) Mailed out letters to all registered Democrats in Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire informing them that if they are too busy with hurricane cleanup work, they could go to the polls on November 8 instead of November 6.
3) Donated 12,000 campaign ads to Red Cross.
4) Found several lost pets, tied them to the roof of his campaign bus and personally transported them to the nearest shelter.
5) For sports fans who had lost electricity and Internet due to the storm and are unable to get the latest sport scores, set up a phone hotline so that they could check the latest results of the horse dressage competitions.
6) Convinced Donald Trump to continue blowing hot air to help dry off the flooded streets of New York.
7) Refrained from holding any campaign rallies in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts in order not to interfere with the cleanup work, and scheduled make-up events in Ohio and Florida.
8) Offered a temporary tax shelter in Cayman Islands to all the money that could not be invested until Wall Street had reopened.
9) Bought $5,000 worth of food and asked for it to be donated it to his supporters, so that they could donate it back to the campaign, so that campaign could donate it to Red Cross, thus effectively tripling the donation activity of the campaign.
10) Called for employers to allow women to leave work early this week so that they can get home in time to cook dinner for the tired 1st responders.
Hopefully, you did not get affected by the storm… and if you did, hopefully, some real help is getting to you quickly…
