In 2010, a year after the last round of Hertz layoffs, Carlyle teamed up with Bain to take $500 million out of another takeover target: the parent company of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins. Dunkin' had to take out a $1.25 billion loan to pay a dividend to its new private equity owners. So think of this the next time you go to Dunkin' Donuts for a cup of coffee: A small cup of joe costs about $1.69 in most outlets, which means that for years to come, Dunkin' Donuts will have to sell about 2,011,834 small coffees every month – about $3.4 million – just to meet the interest payments on the loan it took out to pay Bain and Carlyle their little one-time dividend. And that doesn't include the principal on the loan, or the additional millions in debt that Dunkin' has to pay every year to get out from under the $2.4 billion in debt it's now saddled with after having the privilege of being taken over –with borrowed money – by the firm that Romney built.

If you haven't heard much about how takeover deals like Dunkin' and KB Toys work, that's because Mitt Romney and his private equity brethren don't want you to. The new owners of American industry are the polar opposites of the Milton Hersheys and Andrew Carnegies who built this country, commercial titans who longed to leave visible legacies of their accomplishments, erecting hospitals and schools and libraries, sometimes leaving behind thriving towns that bore their names.

You are a fugging dumbass...
Romney hasn't had control of Bain SINCE THE 90's, and the CURRENT CEO is a HUGE OBAMA SUPPORTER!!

That makes you either an IDIOT, intellectually DISHONEST, or gullible.

Care to explain to the class which one it is, moron?

Ah yeah, Mitt's "retroactive resignation" in which he claimed to the SEC he wasn't running Bain when he actually was.

Whoever the current CEO is, he's not Gordon Gekko running for president.

Now it makes sense. He is successful so he MUST be evil. You are ENTITLED to a piece of the pie huh? He should have his income capped, the rest redistributed to the rest of the entitled Americans right?

This is why we are in a bad place right now, because people like you get as many votes as the informed Americans.
