    Romney says he was 'completely wrong' on '47 percent' comment - The Hill's Video

    “The gap between the rich and the poor has gotten larger. The rich will probably do fine if he is reelected,” Romney said. “It is the middle class that is in real trouble. And the poor. I want the poor to get into the middle class. So many have fallen into poverty by virtue of his policies. So this for me is all about the 100 percent.”

    Romney pays 14% on his taxes.

    I pay 23%.

    This is the real redistribution of wealth in America.....welfare for the wealthy.

    Explain how this is redistribution.

    The masses consume an ever increasing share of the wealth in America, not less.

    Asshole.

    He pays millions in federal income taxes alone, you pay alot less than that.

    Will his paying a few more percentage points help you in any way? Do you think the government will give you back tax money if he pays more? No, they will keep spending and spending.

    You can spend more on the military and cut government if you cut out federal programs that should be funded and operated at the state level.

    When you put the comment "“The gap between the rich and the poor has gotten larger." through the Romney to English dictionary it becomes "our wealth continues to be redistributed from the lower and middle class's to the very rich. And no matter how well the rich are doing, improving the speed and efficiency of our upward redistribution will always have the rich doing even better"
    We also learn that when Romney says "middle class" he doesn't mean 'middle class U.S. citizens " like everyone else. Mitt redefines "middle class" as people making a 1/4 million dollars a year or more.
    But it is about the 100% with Mitt, and how he can get it ALL into the pockets of the 1%

    no you are correct, but its not just military that will grow under him.
    Romney is pushing back to the center and the base won't do anything to stop him.
