Sheldon Adelson propped up Newt Gingrich's vanity campaign earlier this year, and now he's big into the Mitt Romney business. Is he doing this because he loves America and wants what's best for it? If by "America," you mean "Sheldon Adelson's wallet," the answer is yes:
Adelson has vowed to spend as much as $100 million to help sway the 2012 election. According to a new report by Seth Hanlon, the director of fiscal reform at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, Adelson could turn that investment into a $2 billion tax cut if Romney is elected.
If Romney wins and Adelson gets his tax cuts, that's great news for China. Adelson is investing heavily over there. You know, creating jobs and such.
