    Remember this quote (above) from yesterday by Marie Antoinette Romney?
…
Well, Ann, we bet you do “love” women who don’t “have a choice” whether to “go to work” and still raise kids. Here’s some very enlightening information from the article, 12 Things We Could Learn From Previous Romney Tax Returns about how much Mitt and Ann Romney actually value “those people” who scrub their numerous toilets:

7: How many additional household workers did Romney employ? Did he pay them fair wages?
Romney Paid $20,603 Total In Wages To Four Household Workers In 2010. According to the Huffington Post, “IRS forms released Tuesday by Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign show that despite reporting income of $21.7 million, the couple paid only $20,603 in taxable wages for household help in 2010. This figure was divided among four women: Rosania Costa ($4,808), Kelli Harrison ($8,667), Susan Moore ($2,238) and Valerie Cravens Anae ($4,890).” [Huffington Post, 01/24/12]
Romney Paid Only Half Of The Lowest Range Of An Average Housekeeper’s Salary For Only One Of Romney’s Three Houses. According the Huffington Post, “According to a number of Boston-based domestic staffing agencies, the salary range for a housekeeper is between $20 and $30 an hour, which adds up to an annual salary of $40,000 to $50,000 based on forty-hour weeks and two weeks of paid vacation a year. But this number is only for one house, and the Romneys have three houses — a 2,000 sq. ft. townhouse in Belmont, Mass., a 5,400 sq. ft. lake house on 11 acres in Wolfeboro, N.H., and a beach house in La Jolla, Calif., that is undergoing renovations to double its size. Even if the Romneys avoided spending time in La Jolla in 2010, they spent plenty of time in New Hampshire, with regular visits in the summer from five sons and their families. Yet the Romneys still paid only half of the lowest range of an average housekeeper’s salary, which raises the question of who cleaned the Romney houses the other 50 percent of the time.” [Huffington Post, 01/24/12]

We should all aspire to be Ann Romney: being born into privilege, marrying a man also born into privilege, living off investment income while in college, buying four homes and paying the household help less than the national average to clean them, dressage competition as a hobby… HARDEST JOB IN THE WORLD, PEOPLE!
Ann Romney: “…we value those people too” (unless by ‘those people’ you mean the women who scrub her toilets)
