Mitt Romney has done it again. According to the website MotherJones.com, he was caught secretly holding a millionaire donor fundraiser in which he told attendees what “this Romney” holds to be the truth about how he feels regarding those he refers to as “the 47 percent of President Obama’s voters.” You can even watch the video here.
In the video he practically calls the 47 percent of the voters (or 150 million Americans, according to MSNBC ) who back President Obama freeloaders who want to live from government-funded programs, such as health care (the seniors?), food stamps (poor white families and minority groups?), housing, etc. This 47 percent Romney refers to as “victims,” he adds via Mother Jones, are people who will vote for the President “no matter what.” He goes on disparaging these percentage of Americans by further proclaiming that they “don’t pay income tax.” Lastly, he closes his door to the 47 percent of Americans with needs by saying that his “job is not to worry about” them, because he’ll never “convince them [that] they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” Instead, he says he has to focus on the independent voters.
