Addelson to recieve $2 Billion tax cut if Romney is elected. $100 million well spent?

http://images.politico.com/global/20...onc4brief.html

The billionaire has pledged $100 million to defeat Obama. Wonder if its because he is in line to put an additional $2 billion in his pocket.



Here's how:
  • Cut top tax rates, saving Adelson approximately $1.5 million on his annual compensation as chief executive of his casino company.
  • Maintain the special low rates on dividends, potentially saving Adelson nearly $120 million on a single year’s worth of dividends, more than enough to recoup his politi- cal donations.
  • Maintain the special low rates on capital gains, allowing Adelson to make back his political donations in capital gains tax cuts just by selling a fraction of his stock.
  • Provide a tax windfall of an estimated $1.2 billion to Adelson’s company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., on untaxed profits from its Asian casinos, as well as a tax exemption forfuture overseas profits. Adelson’s casinos already enjoy a special foreign tax exemp- tion from the Chinese administrative region of Macau, and Gov. Romney would make those foreign profits exempt from U.S. taxes as well.
  • Eliminate the estate tax, potentially providing a staggering $8.9 billion windfall to Adelson’s heirs.

Doesn't matter who he supported in the primary. He's on Mitt's team now.

I think it would be more accurate to say that Sheldon Adelson would be donating massive amounts of money to the Republican candidate regardless of who the candidate is.
I don't think he trusted Romney as much as he did the Grinch during the primary. However, that's being handled by Romney's advisory team now. They have re-emerged out of the "dark" from the Rs being tossed out, "like cockroaches" to control Romney. Enough money ought to play in as a factor. These guys are not protecting American interests. They are hurting this country.

You can listen to the full podcast here:
Romney's Neocons

These guys ain't pretty.

"Obama wants to rob $2bil from Addelson if re-elected"

Though I don't doubt that Adelson (and many wealthy investors) would financially benefit, to be fair his motive has always been very clear from the beginning.

Sheldon Adelson is a one-issue guy, and that issue is Israel. He's trying to buy a war against Iran. If he just happens to benefit financially, fine.

I know. But how does a tax free china casino ever make it into out tax code? Money. Little money up front , more back in return. And yes, both sides do it. I was just being a smart ass with this whole thread.
