„Look, you can't have any illegals working on our property. I'm running for office, for Pete's sake.“

—  Mitt Romney
Context: Rick, I don't think I've ever hired an illegal in my life... We had a lawn company to mow our lawn, and they had illegal immigrants, and when that was pointed out to us, we let them go... So we went to the company and we said, "Look, you can't have any illegals working on our property. I'm running for office, for Pete's sake. I can't have illegals."

„So, all total, the tax rate is really closer to 45 or 50%.“

—  Mitt Romney
Context: Jorge Ramos: You just released your tax returns. In 2010 you only paid 13% of taxes while most Americans paid much more than that. Is that fair? Mitt Romney Well, actually, I released two years of taxes and I think the average is almost 15%. And then also, on top of that, I gave another more 15% to charity. When you add it together with all of the taxes and the charity, particularly in the last year, I think it reaches almost 40% that I gave back to the community. One of the reasons why we have a lower tax rate on capital gains is because capital gains are also being taxed at the corporate level. So as businesses earn profits, that's taxed at 35%, then as they distribute those profits as dividends, that's taxed at 15% more. So, all total, the tax rate is really closer to 45 or 50%. Jorge Ramos: But is it fair what you pay, 13%, while most pay much more than that? Mitt Romney Well, again, I go back to the point that the, that the funds are being taxed twice at two different levels. interview with Univision

„I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.“

—  Mitt Romney
Context: I want individuals to have their own insurance. That means the insurance company will have an incentive to keep you healthy. It also means if you don't like what they do, you can fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me. You know, if someone doesn't give me a good service that I need, I want to say I'm going to go get someone else to provide that service to me. Speech to Chamber of Commerce in Nashua, New Hampshire, , quoted in
