It might be explained partly by the personal political views of Bain officials. Bekenstein, the director who first donated to Obama, has given to many Democrats and was at one time a member of liberal billionaire George Soros’ Democracy Alliance.

But ideology typically plays a limited role when big companies in heavily regulated industries make campaign donations, said Alexandre Padilla, an economist at Metropolitan State University of Denver who tracks campaign finance issues.

Instead, companies like Bain donate with an eye to the bottom line, hoping to influence rulemakers “to prevent too much regulation or to get regulation that is going to benefit them,” Padilla said in an interview.

“Bain is giving money to lobby to ensure that policies developed by the government won’t penalize them or make it more costly for them to do business,” he wrote in a follow-up email.“Similarly, they give money to both horses in the race.… It’s just a way of diversifying your risk.”

Bain gave to Obama just like the failures that voted for him. They wabt something.

Since 22% of that 47% you Repubs love to talk about are retired seniors do you want to start taxing them? How about those deployed military troops that do not pay Federal Taxes? You want to start taxing them? You"re as dumb as the man that lost the election because of his stupid 47% remarks.

They used to teach economics in high school back in the day. Too bad government dependency is taught now. People could be investing in an annuity for the future instead of that flat screen.

Oh, and even lower income retirees pay for Medicare with a portion of their pension.

Well, thank God you had enough sense to not vote for him and to not be duped by his lies.

I'm glad I don't make over 250,000 dollars per year. I sure don't want to be punished for being rich! On the other hand, I'm sure glad my employer is rich enough to pay me weekly.

No, I'm not a libertarian. But some of their points I do agree with. I just brought up some of their points because the teabaggers like to think they line up with them. The bagger nuts really have no idea what the libertarians stand for.
