ROMNEY OFFENDS POOR PEOPLE? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Romney said he was concerned about the middle class, the new poor and not the long standing poor, who are the elderly, disabled and poor for other reason than the economy who have a safety net and he was absolutely right. If the middle class is not working they will not provide any revenue that provides for the long standing poor. But the also said in the same sentence that is there are hole in provision for the poor he will fix them. The poor have medical care, housing subsidies, food stamps and welfare or SSI monetary grants. Included in this is the elderly and disabled. They dont work, dont have credit cards and paying mortgages. They would not have these if not for working middle class. And the went on to say he does not have to worry about the rich. He was absolutely right and even his own tried to twist his words and take them out of context. It is not Obama who is pitting republicans against republicans it is other republicans. Again the poor Romney was talking about was the new poor, the middle class who are the working class that is unemployed and losing their healthcare and their homes and dont have a safety net. Nanny state was create by Bush and just another name for Radical Right Wing Extremists screw up. Obama is not the one beating up on republican candidates, republicans eating their own are doing a great job themselves.
