Harriet Vane

47 percent (!)

Dear friends and readers,

It's the 47% that's troubling. Mitt Romney thinks 47% of Americans are deadbeats, freeloaders, people who see themselves as victims and with a right to food, shelter and health care. More than half of the US population.  The other day he said middle class people were people with $250,000 a year.

Of course this includes all older people on social security, It has to or how make the numbers up to 47%. Their decades of work and contribution count for nothing.

What universe does this man live in? It's a little worrying when he says he's not gonig to pay any attention to the 47%. They are no concern of his as none of them will ever vote for him.

To be fair, he also said that no one, no one has the right to food, shelter and health care as a human right. No one.  People who can't make access to these things for whatever reason should be left to freeze or live on the streets, starve and die if they are sick of whatever.
