Well, I happen to disagree. Yes, there are plenty who would disagree with Romney’s remarks.
However, there is a true national security issue with so many people not being productive enough to earn and improve themselves. The people who take nearly outnumber those who don’t.
What will become of these people who have not learned to be their own masters when the money runs out? They have been parasites on the national largesse and taxation. Many are functionally illiterate. Some are ignorant. Some are infirm. Some are just plain lazy. Some are thieving from the rest of us. What will these people do with themselves? Even if they loot and kill and do other violence, what will they do when the money really and truly is gone?
Actually, there are a lot of people who work but don’t make a lot of money and because of the tax rates and EIC, do not pay income taxes. Just because you don’t end up paying income tax doesn’t mean you are lazy and dependent on the government. He insulted a lot of voters and I don’t think it helped him.
