I see the Obama ass-kissing, leftist media in America are enraged at Romney. And the Amateur in the White House is ''shocked!'' at Romney telling the truth about about how the people on welfare, attached to the teat of Obama's socialist government, aren't likely to vote for him and boy, aren't there a lot of them!
The reality is that there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. And Romney spoke the unmitigated truth when he was at a fundraiser and voiced his appraisal of the true nature of the presidential campaign. He stated; ''There are 47% who are with him, who are dependant upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. These are people who pay no income tax.''
In a one-minute video clip now being touted by those hostile to Romney as a blow to his campaign, it turns out that Romney has the same opinion of Obama's supporters that Obama does, as demonstrated by his campaign's infamous Julia cartoons: Obama, too, thinks his supporters are a bunch of helpless dependents. Welfare was always a winning issue, but it seemed to become moot at the federal level, after Clinton's welfare reform in 1994. Now, as government dependency has skyrocketed during the Age of Obama, it is back on the table. Romney should be ready to recite the dependency numbers at the drop-of-a-hat, especially now that Obama cancelled, last May, the provision to find work as the welfare cheques were going to come for a limited time.
Romney must regularly point out the millions of long-term unemployed, the millions more who have left the labor force, the untold number of young people who never got into the labor force, the one-sixth of Americans on food stamps, an astonishing 8.7 million now on permanent and total disability! Romney shouldn't be at all defensive about the video clip. Whenever he is asked about it, he should say that the most fundamental difference between him and Barack Obama is that he wants people to have jobs and Obama wants them to be dependent on the government....Commie-style. Then he should should reeling off statistics. He should conclude by saying that we need more people paying taxes because they have jobs and fewer collecting benefits because they don't. If he responds aggressively a few times, reporters will stop asking. Far better to pick up the argument and run with it.
The Way I See It....according to the Census Bureau, 49% of Americans in the second quarter of 2011 lived in a household where at least one member received a government benefit. That's up from 30% in the 1980s and 44% in the third quarter f 2008, a recent growth in art attributable to the bad economy of President Obama's first term.
Mr Romney implied that anyone receiving government benefits wouldn't likely be one of his voters. But there's no clear partisan split among the beneficiaries, especially for broad-based federal retirement and health-care programs. He is also correct in stating that nearly half of Americans pay no federal income tax. Roughly half of U.S. households that pay no federal income tax are exempted because of basic provisions such as limitations on tax for low-income earners. The other half benefit from from targeted breaks (known as ''tax expenditures'' such as assistance for the working poor, seniors and for children in moderate income families. On thing to remember is that Socialism is great.....until you run out of money! Ask Greece!
