As Mass Governor, Cartoon Plutocrat Mitt Romney Taxed People For Being Blind

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

There's your markOur good, decent, compassionate brethren on the right are always screaming and wailing about Paris Hilton’s god-given right to never work a day in her life because some fringe Mad Men character made a lot of money once, and taxing her on her inheritance means taxing DEATH ITSELF. We all know that His Lord High Hairgel Mittens of Romney understands wealth’s need to cascade from father to son, down through the centuries. He would never be so gauche as to tax the living for the money of the dead. But if you have to have “money” to run your state, and you don’t want it to come from you, from whose pocket should it justly be yanked? We will go with “blind people.”

Esquire has a lovely find from a 2003 Telegram & Gazette piece:

It now costs to be blind in Massachusetts. The state’s approximately 35,000 blind and legally blind residents must now pay $10 annually for a certificate of blindness and $15 every four years for a blind identification card. Without the formerly-free documents, blind people cannot take advantage of tax abatements, affordable housing programs, health care services, transportation discounts and other benefits. … The fees originated in February, in Gov. Mitt Romney’s budget proposal for fiscal 2004.
—Shaun Sutner, “Advocates Fight Fees For The Blind,” Telegram & Gazette, 8/5/03

Why not just take their tin cups, and cut out the middleman? Come on, Mittens, get your head in the game!

I wonder what Jesus would think of Romney's hundreds of millions and his treatment of poor people and people in need of a little help?

deanbooth August 10, 2012 at 2:15 pm

1. Jesus is Love.
2. Love is blind.
3. ??????
4. PROFIT!!!

GuyClinch August 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

That comment wins, even blindfolded

3. Jesus is Ray Charles

the tone-deaf leading the blind.

Dudleydidwrong August 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Which Jeebus? The one who said "Blessed are the poor"? Or the one who said, "The rich sit at my right hand but the poor are royally screwed"?

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm

The Jesus that said "Blessed are the cheesemakers"; I'm sure at some point Bain bought some manufacturer of dairy products.

Who's the Greek?

zippy_w_pinhead August 10, 2012 at 3:16 pm

Jimmy?

Chet Kincaid_ August 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm

That is the beauty of the Mormon strategy: you retroactively create the kind of Jesus you want.

smashedinhat August 10, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Mittens would probably hire a dozen blind folk on a dime and let them drag themselves around his mansions dusting the floors with their pratfalls.

Chet Kincaid_ August 10, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Jesus made enough money off the poor, the sick and the blind to build a nice mansion for Himself and his wife Mary Magdelene in France, while still retaining controlling interest in Christianity through His equity stakes in Catholicism and the Orthodox Church. Templar Investments LLC has been guarding the financial records on this for centuries. If His descendants had resisted the urge to blab to Da Vinci, the Holy Family could have enjoyed another few hundred years of quiet wealth and influence.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 10, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Jesus was in his 30s when he said all that liberal shit. Once he grew up and got all that gold and stuff you see in the Vatican, he only cared about his rate of return on his investments.

emmelemm August 10, 2012 at 2:58 pm

"If you're under 30 and you're a Republican, you have no heart. If you're over 30 and you're a Democrat, you have no brain."

Fukui-sanYesOta August 10, 2012 at 10:17 pm

That's assigned to many people, and I'm happy to say that – being in sneezing distance of forty – it's bullshit.

Chet Kincaid_ August 10, 2012 at 3:23 pm

After the merger with the Roman Empire that formed Holy Roman Enterprises, and with every schism in Christianity since, the Christs' original equity stake has increased in value by a factor of 10. No member of the Christ family has worked at a job since at least the Third Century. They are incredible Equestrian enthusiasts, though.

bobbert August 10, 2012 at 6:25 pm

But what does Christ's IRA look like?

nounverb911 August 10, 2012 at 2:13 pm

How much for Obama's Birth Certificate?

KotBR August 10, 2012 at 2:36 pm

It's free, unless you need it in Braille, then it's $35

nounverb911 August 10, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Is the $10 fee tax deductible?

noodlesalad August 10, 2012 at 2:15 pm

To be fair, this blind tax allowed him to provide an even bigger tax break to deaf millionaires. (Hearing millionaires may have also benefited).

Generation[redacted] August 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm

tone deaf millionaires.

ChernobylSoup August 10, 2012 at 2:15 pm

I didn't see that one coming.

LesBontemps August 10, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I've never *said* that, but I have *thought* it when you guys run pictures of Newt and/or Rush.

viennawoods13 August 10, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Well, to be fair, the money for Anne's tax write-offs for her horses as medical expenses had to come from somewhere.

GuyClinch August 10, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Does Romney have to pay for his Moral Blindness card?

sharethegrief August 10, 2012 at 2:49 pm

That's on a chip implanted in his corneas.

x111e7thst August 10, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Damn blind freeloaders. When did they ever create any jobs?

nounverb911 August 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Some one has to train the seeing eye dressage horses.

nounverb911 August 10, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Don't tell Grover that Mittens raised taxes.

Callyson August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I used to say that a person had to be blind to support Mittens. I stand corrected: even blind people can see through him now…

bumfug August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

But they had to get rid of the tax because people just couldn't see paying it.

Sue4466 August 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

This is so wrong. So is the fact that I can't stop laughing.

Oblios_Cap August 10, 2012 at 2:40 pm

They had eye problems.

sharethegrief August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I don't even want to know what he did to Seeing Eye Dogs.

He strapped them to the bottom of the car.

That is so bad, but I can't stop laughing.

deanbooth August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I worried that blind guy is going to fall into the snark pit below.

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Why don't those blind people just pull themselves up by their own bootstraps and start seeing?

GunToting[Redacted] August 10, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Maybe they can borrow some eyes from their parents and start seeing.

Tundra Grifter August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

"$15 every four years for a blind identification card." The state just keeps sending them the same one.

HogeyeGrex August 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Blank, no doubt.

Boojum August 10, 2012 at 8:10 pm

When I lived in Tennessee, the back side of my voter registration card contained printed "Instructions for the Blind Voter."

And no, they were no in braille.

Goonemeritus August 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

It’s only fair those canes for the blind just tear up the sidewalks.

Tundra Grifter August 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Little Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles didn't need any help. Why would anyone else?

Jus_Wonderin August 10, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Would Sammy Davis Jr. get a 50 percent discount?

Tundra Grifter August 10, 2012 at 4:05 pm

I've just never been a big Sammy Davis, Jr., fan. Maybe it was the gold medallion. Maybe it was the Richard Nixon hug. Just never did it for me.

tessiee August 10, 2012 at 7:42 pm

"Little Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles didn't need any help."

Old National Lampoon cartoon:

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Hey, Matt Murdoch is blind, and he's incredibly successful as both an attorney and a costumed vigilante; therefore blind people have it easy and all should be able to afford the blind tax.

miss_grundy August 10, 2012 at 2:31 pm

He's also incredibly wealthy…….

Gratuitous World August 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Mitt can't see the forest for the trees. But he sure as shit will note the height of those trees.

Oblios_Cap August 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Without the formerly-free documents, blind people cannot take advantage of tax abatements, affordable housing programs, health care services, transportation discounts and other benefits.

What – no one could tell they were blind if they didn't have their papers?

It's kinda like a Mormom Miracle – you can see! It'll only cost you $25 to be blind again!

zippy_w_pinhead August 10, 2012 at 2:20 pm

stealing them blind…

SoBeach August 10, 2012 at 2:20 pm

It's about time someone made blind people put some skin in the game.

Tundra Grifter August 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Aye, aye!

deanbooth August 10, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Hey, buddy, want to buy a certificate of blindness for $5?

IndianaKevin August 10, 2012 at 10:43 pm

I do, and I'm not even blind!

SmutBoffin August 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm

What other infirmities and near-infirmities can we tax?

$11 for having one arm?
$4 for not being able to tell the difference between coffeehouse coffee and Folger's crystals?
$8.50 for having "length but not girth"?

sewollef August 10, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Wait a minute there Smut….

'length not girth' …. is an infirmity or a near-infirmity, which is it, I need to know?

Boojum August 10, 2012 at 8:12 pm

$150,000,000 for lacking compassion or any shred of human decency?

widestanceromance August 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Good. I'm sick of these Cane Queens fumbling around in my pockets for free stuff.

Dudleydidwrong August 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Getting this country working again ("Jerbs," he said) means that the damn blind people have to get outta the way or contribute to the process. No freeloaders. Unless they own dancing horses.

Sue4466 August 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm

He's cartoonishly evil at this point.

Romney/Mr. Burns 2012.

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Romney still hasn't denied stealing candy from a baby.

It's not safe for babies to have candy – you're actually doing a favor by taking that candy away from the baby.

Gotta do something to top the humiliation of running them into doors

MissTaken August 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Blind people are always getting screwed. Homeowners want blinds that perfectly fit the custom windows in their cute little breakfast nooks and bedrooms with no thought of how hard it is to make a new blind mold every time for each individual window. Blind people get no respect.

redarmyzombie August 10, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Don't forget the Blahs and the Yew People.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm

But the joke is on the blind, as the state just sent them blank paper every time.

IncenseDebate August 10, 2012 at 2:24 pm

By the way that fringe Mad Men character was creepy. Do you think he was after Don's wand? He had that old lecher look in his eyes.

MissTaken August 10, 2012 at 2:28 pm

he was very upset that Don wouldn't give him the moon. And by moon I mean his butt.

IncenseDebate August 10, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Chet Kincaid_ August 10, 2012 at 2:38 pm

His sex tape was even worse.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 10, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Scott Brown will come out against this, as the government should not let the blind have identification or otherwise they will vote against him.

johnnyzhivago August 10, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Romney needs to lighten his image as a people screwing, job exporting, money grubbing, private jet flying, tax cheating, election losing monster.

Carly Fiorina for VP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

salt_bagel August 10, 2012 at 2:25 pm

And to think Romney's Certificate of Blandness cost nothing.

johnnyzhivago August 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm

And don't even get started on Romney's Orphan Tax!

Chet Kincaid_ August 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Isn't Braille one of those countries down by Mexico?

sewollef August 10, 2012 at 4:25 pm

It sounds French 'cos it is French. Louis Braille invented it some time around the early 1800's. I believe the clever bastard invented it after he went blind himself.

bobbert August 10, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Self-centered asshole.

DerrickWildcat August 10, 2012 at 2:35 pm

And they totally have the braille on the ones in the drive-up window at the bank!

Pithaughn August 10, 2012 at 3:16 pm

True fact: the sign in the clubhouse for the umpires locker room has braille on it.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 11, 2012 at 12:52 am

They would self-deport, but they can't find the way.

johnnyzhivago August 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Even more awful: Mitt's favorite dinner – Kitten Pot Pie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IncenseDebate August 10, 2012 at 2:33 pm

At least they clean the pussy really well before it's cooked.

sewollef August 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Maybe, but I believe dessert is 'Spotted Dick'.

Hey, I just report the facts…

snackypants August 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Well, the blind do get an additional $1,000 tax deduction, so they are still coming out $975 ahead!

WhatTheHeck August 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm

If only the poor had the vision to hide their monies in a blind trust, they’d be able to see their way in retirement.

mlle_derp August 10, 2012 at 2:30 pm

"There are none so blind as those that will not see."

So we should tax Mitt for each & every instance of his failure to realize what an unimaginative, arrogant, greedy bastard he really is. Debt problems solved!

actor212 August 10, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Nice guy. He should have taxed people with Alzheimer's because they'd forget. Motherfucking asshole

Oblios_Cap August 10, 2012 at 2:37 pm

They would forget to pay. Or to put stamps on the envelopes.

DerrickWildcat August 10, 2012 at 2:34 pm

There might be a lot of blind people faking it. They just close their eyes and walk around and bump into things and have strangers help them across the street and stuff.

mlle_derp August 10, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Mitt used to do that for spare change after he got tired of collecting 'speeding fines' from motorists while wearing his Michigan highway patrol outfit.

Apparently, you can make good money if you look clueless enough, and Mitt does 'clueless' to perfection…

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Well Julia-Louis Dreyfus' prosecutor on Arrested Development faked being blind to get sympathy from judges and juries; so therefore it must be rampant in real life.

The other weird thing about the blind tax is the part where they had to pay at the State House and Gov. Romney kept closing the doors in front of them so they would walk into them. Then he would cackle that awful laugh.

At least Rosemary's Baby is gone.

natoslug August 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I had a dream about Meghan McCain last night, which put to rest any fears of stubby boobs that I might have ever had. Unfortunately, it quickly switched from dream to nightmare when I questioned her father's integrity. She ended up switching from sitting on my lap in a short skirt to screaming at me about how much Chicago sucks. I think I need to work harder on my wet dreams. Why does dream Megs McCain hate Chicago so much? I think it is quite nice and am not inviting her back into my fantasies again.

bobbert August 10, 2012 at 6:23 pm

There was no screaming about the back of her throat?

natoslug August 10, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Sometimes I envy the blind. At least they don't have to see all these political shitheads.

Bitch bitch bitch….perhaps they should have thought of this before they chose to be blind.

Wilcoxyz August 10, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Mitt later hired them to audit his blind trust. So his taxes should be legit.

SorosBot August 10, 2012 at 2:49 pm

His taxes aren't just legit; they're too legit, too legit to quit.

Jus_Wonderin August 10, 2012 at 2:49 pm

I hope I can be forgiven for sitting beside a blind lady, asking what she was "reading", then taking the text and turning it upside down. She did reprimand me with a long stare.

Blunderthing August 10, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I guess they just gave up trying to tell the deaf people about their tax.

pinkocommi August 10, 2012 at 2:52 pm

I am waiting for the next story to come out that Romney made a blind person ride strapped to the top of the roof of his minivan on the family vacation.

Katydid August 10, 2012 at 2:55 pm

I just hope he didn't take away the blind people's God-given rights to own – and shoot – a gun.

a_pink_poodle August 10, 2012 at 3:03 pm

This was what Jesus was working on; he'd heal the blind then come back and ask for favors or he'd blind them again. Nothing like the good ol' Judeah Racket.

bobbert August 10, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Nice miraculously-restored eyes you got there ….

a_pink_poodle August 10, 2012 at 9:46 pm

It would be a shame if this two pronged pitchfork were to… oh, I don't know… INJURE you in some highly unlikely way.

It's like they're being robbed blind!

wmichaelsears August 10, 2012 at 3:21 pm

The fee was just the start…
Mitt then told the blind people that they only gave him a 5 dollar bill instead of a 10 spot.

zippy_w_pinhead August 10, 2012 at 3:21 pm

that'll teach all those freeloaders not to fap so much- they were warned…

Stevie Wonder mentions all kinds of things that only a sighted person would understand in his lyrics, which, quite frankly, makes me suspicious. We should double his taxes, just to be safe.

"The state’s approximately 35,000 blind and legally blind residents must now pay $10 annually for a certificate of blindness and $15 every four years for a blind identification card."

It's even worse than it sounds.
Romney takes the blind guy's money and *tells* him he's giving him a certificate of blindness and a blind identification card, but it's *really* just a blank sheet of paper and a playing card.

A few years back, I worked in Student Services, which included Disabled Student Services. One of the legally blind guys who worked there told me that he had taken a cab and lit a cigarette (this wsa when you could still smoke pretty much anywhere).
Cabbie: Hey, you can't smoke in here!
Guy: Oh, sorry.
Cabbie: There's a sign right there! What are ya, blind?
Guy: Actually, yes. [he didn't have a seeing eye dog or anything] I *am* blind.
Cabbie [shocked and mortified]: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't know.
Guy: That's OK.
[pause]
Cabbie [shouting at the top of his lungs]: SO. ARE… YOU… FROM… AROUND… HERE?

Of course, the punch line is that for their money, all they get is a blank piece of paper. "After all, how will they know the difference?" – quipped one insider.

If you don't keep up you blind license, will your blindness be revoked?
