Skip to comments.Romney: $40 Would Make a ‘Substantial Difference’ to American Families (Romney covers for Zero)
Posted on 12/23/2011 12:08:47 PM PST by rabscuttle385
LANCASTER, N.H. Mitt Romney today said that the $40 many Americans would lose if the payroll tax holiday isnt extended would make a very substantial difference to those who would be without it.
Itll be the difference between having a meal that includes meat or just Hamburger Helper, said Romney in an interview with ABC News John Berman aboard his new campaign bus in northern New Hampshire. It could be the difference between being able to take your family to McDonalds at the end of the week. It means the difference between being able to go to a movie or not going to a movie.
It makes a real difference to the American people, he said.

Mitt is an undercover liberal democrat
He just makes my flesh crawl. Being patronized is bad. Being patronized by a hologram is worse.
Romney is an idiot, but that doesn’t mean that the republican house had the power to force their way with the democrats over this payroll tax thing. They simply didn’t. The dems control the senate and the presidency.
Apparently Mitt isn’t aware that Hamburger Helper requires the addition of ground beef. His family obviously didn’t eat it.
How would Romney know what $40 dollars would do , he has never needed 40 dollars in his life.
I hate when rich people try to tell me how bad off the poor are.
What a laughable farce the GOP is.
$40 only buys ONE tank of gas. Whoopee. Mitt IS out of touch.
Sounds like Mitt does not put meat in his Hamburger Helper. Wasn’t there a Chevy Chase vacation movie about that once?
It’s dangerous posting anything on here that in any way can be seen as pro-Romney, but I must say, it looks like he’s trying to distance himself from the “Rich Mitt”, vs. “working class stiff Obama” battle that may very well take shape.
my two cents.
Wait until January when those people start thinking they’re going to have $40 MORE in their paychecks and don’t! Soon they’ll be protesting that they are being cheated.
Itll be the difference between having a meal that includes meat or just Hamburger Helper, said Romney
More proof that Wee Willie Mitty wouldnt be seen dead at Walmart where hamburger/ground beef costs much less than $40 a pound...
Hes thinking of the $40 steak he gets at the resturant in the $5 BILLION mall...
and who talk him to say “Hamburger Helper” ???
I wonder how many people will care when SS goes belly up that much earlier because of this “tax cut”?
What is wrong with hamburger helper Mitt? I cannot stand Mitt.
Yes, Clearly that is what he is doing. This shows how dangerous it would be to have him be the nominee.
We already had 8 years of that sort of defensive behavior and the results were terrible and left us with a economic mess and a Obama/Pelosi controlled country and Obama-care.
Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."
Chihuahua Romney - the One and the Only "Magic RINO(TM)":
Milt Romney in 2007
Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
and who TAUGHT him to say Hamburger Helper ???
$40 = one change of discount Magic Underwear to stop bullets. Who can beat that?
ROTFL....Mitt would have a hard time trying to convince anyone he isn't a silver spoon baby, even with the false stories about his hardships in the mission field...there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Mitt and Obama other than the fact that Mitt has that false grin on his face when he sticks the knife into the other candidates.
we’re in deep doo-doo. But no matter who, even Alfred E. Newman I’m in!! Anyone but Zero
President Romney, Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Boehner .......now doesn’t that just scare the hell out of you. We better stop fighting over which candidate is going to run against Obama and start working for our state senators and representatives. If Conservatives control the house and senate, it will not make any difference which one of the candidates (excluding Paul and Obama) is president.
From the first line of the story:
Mitt Romney today said that the $40 ... would make a very substantial difference to those who would be without it.
That will be eaten up and more in the higher electricity and fuel oil, and natural gas costs resulting from Hussein’s policies:
“Energy prices will necessarily skyrocket.”
It’s only dangerous to pretend he is either honest or conservative. You can post all day long about the truth but you cannot push his lies. Mitt could have been a great (D) politician. Could have written his own ticket. Like Bill Clinton. The “any guy” at parties who will say anything to get along with every clique in the room. His core beliefs do not exist. maybe within his religion they do. But in politics he has taken every side of most key issues. That’s his biggest problem and it only works if there is a (D) behind your name. He’s in the wrong party.
So I guess Mittens thinks the average American lives on Hamburger helper and McDonalds. yuck.
With Obama’s Hope and Change that $40 really helps.
it will buy: 1/4 tank of Obama gas.
one small Obama holiday Turkey
Enough grocerys to serve dinner for 2 1/2
Four small steaks.
Enough lumber to build a cozy house for a pet
Barack Hussein Obama never worked enough in his life to earn an honest forty dollars. The only real job he ever had. Scooping ice cream when he did that he gave away $40 dollars worth of ice cream to his friends every day.
I can’t believe how many people are buying into that $40 crap. It’s not “$40 per paycheck” unless you make over $50,000 per year.
A lot of people are going to be disappointed when they don’t see another $40 in their takehome pay in January.
It's true. You get to look forward to going alone to a MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME where you sit in fair territory and don't eat much. (Parking is extra.)
I think he is referring to the federal government, which obviously cannot do without adding more to the deficit, especially while removing our own money, representing our own labor, from our own locked boxes for our own retirement.
I think is yet again a mitt romney “you don’t have anything to fear from a nobama presidency” moment (ala mclame). Sheesh... Merry Christmas!
Well, to be fair to “poor” Mitt, they don’t make Filet Mignon Helper.
Lower gas prices and fuel oil would help me a lot more then 40 bucks which I have not noticed in my paycheck since they began the so called tax cut.
If it’s $40 a week, than you’re making over $100,000 a year. Bite me....you’ll only make $98,000.
Shows the eltist attitude - a $10K bet is inconsequential to such as he, but $40.00 is a boon to the unwashed.
Purposefully underfunding Social Security in exchange for temporary pizza money for people, most of whom pay little in the way of taxes to begin with, all so that the other party can excoriate you for being mean-spirited either way? What a plan. If Republicans were any stupider, you’d have to water them twice a week. They deserve Romney. We don’t.
“Wait until January when those people start thinking theyre going to have $40 MORE in their paychecks and dont! Soon theyll be protesting that they are being cheated.”
—That’s what I was thinking. The casual newswatcher probably thinks they are getting a $40 raise in their paycheck. Not only will there be no change, but their health insurance probably went up.

Was he supposed to say “ let them eat cake”?
Do you have a point?
The sooner, the better!
Stupid is as stupid does. What a jerk.
