Romney's America is no dream for those in middle class

October 14, 2012 12:00 am

Mitt Romney won the first Presidential debate. Not so fast. He is still the man who doesn’t care about 47 percent of Americans.

He is still the man who has elevators for his cars, made his fortune destroying working class jobs and bankrupting companies. He still hides his money in the Cayman Islands. Talk is cheap if it’s not the truth.

Wealth in this country was admired because it provided jobs, benefits and security. Not today. Wealth is only for the wealthy, and Romney is the poster child calling average Americans freeloaders. This out-of-touch characterization dangerously attacks the middle class.

No health care, no jobs, no Medicare, and no Social Security. That’s Romney’s America.
