Orthopedic Group in Philly lays down big bet for Romney

PhillyDeals: Small-business owners plan to delay hiring process until after election

Rothman for Romney
Doctors who staff the Philadelphia-based Rothman Institute chain of orthopedic clinics were, as a group, the "top contributors to Mitt Romney's Republican campaign for the third quarter of 2012," the Washington Post reports, citing Federal Election Commission data.
Contributions to a pro-Romney fund from 65 Rothman doctors on Sept. 17 totaled $751,000. The second-largest Romney-donor employer group for that period worked for private-equity investors Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, which gave $480,000.
Why do these bone men want to dump President Obama? Rothman spokesman Richard Cushman declined to comment when my colleague Harold Brubaker asked.
I know, I know! They have huge incomes and don't want them to change one little bit.
