Satirical Group Advocating Inequality Endorses Romney

Americans for Inequality, a New Hampshire-based citizens’ advocacy group with a satirical edge, announced Monday that it will endorse Mitt Romney’s bid for President.

Timed to coincide with Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan’s visit to the state Monday morning, the group released a press release that wielded comedy to voice displeasure with the economic policies of the presumptive Republican ticket.

Although Americans for Inequality does not have an official website, the group’s Facebook page has become a hotspot of conversation about the Romney/Ryan budget and its cuts targeted at programs serving low-income Americans. The prominent Facebook cover photo fore the group features a quote attributed to President John F. Kennedy that has become associated with the principle of trickle-down economics superimposed over a scene of a New Orleans neighborhood overrun by flood waters following Hurricane Katrina.

The group’s interim chairman, Warren Bancroft, said in a written statement that “the beauty of the Romney/Ryan plan” is that “the higher the income, the higher the tax break. Their budget plan will ensure that inequality will remain with us, as it should, for many years.”
