Romney the rich guy pretends to feel your financial pain.
Mitt Romney and his $13.4 million dollar a year pension plan want you to know that they feel your pain and suffering. The middle class is hurting and Romney wants them to know that he really really cares. Romney is against President Obama's payroll tax cut which passed the Senate and is dying today in the House. Romney called that $1500 tax cut a "Band-Aid."
Someone should tell Romney that $1500 is a larger amount than $167. Also, someone should tell Romney that saying things about his plan to allow "middle income folks to participate in making a brighter future for themselves" sounds like a bunch of hogwash. Have you ever heard a more meaningless sentence?
Well, I guess it's better then when he said "167 is not zero." Seriously, he said that. If Romney is President Obama's opponent in the general election expect a flurry of attacks on how out of touch Romney is with average Americans who don't make enough money to benefit from his cuts to capital gains taxes.
