Mother Jones secured this video of Governor Romney speaking at a private fundraiser in California. In it, Romney tells his wealthy contributors that 47% of American voters are dependent on handouts from the government.
The idea that the 47% of voters polled as supporting Obama do not pay income taxes to the federal government is comical. Moreover, anyone working that does not end up owing federal income tax, still pays local and state taxes and contributes employment taxes.
Apparently Governor Romney wants to be president of the 53%. Not the leaches.
