Romney says 47 percent of the country won’t vote for him, causing yet another record month for the number of Americans on disability
**Written by Doug Powers
Video recently surfaced of Mitt Romney telling attendees at a fundraiser that 47 percent of the country won’t vote for him because they feel entitled to a handout. The economy reacted swiftly and negatively:
The Social Security Administration has released new data revealing that 8,786,049 American workers are collecting federal disability insurance payments in September. That sets yet another record for the number of Americans on disability.
The 8,786,049 workers taking federal disability in September is a net increase of 18,108 from the 8,767,941 workers who took federal disability in August.
Also, Romney saying 47 percent of the country won’t vote for him because they feel entitled to a handout seems to have caused the unemployment rate to stay over 8 percent for the 43rd consecutive month — more time over 8 percent than the last 11 presidents combined — as the poverty rate shot up to the highest level since 1965.
Additionally, Romney said 47 percent of the country won’t vote for him because they feel entitled to a handout at approximately the same time the national debt climbed over $16 trillion, the deficit topped $1 trillion for the fourth straight year and the US credit rating was downgraded yet again. Coincidence? No way!
Apologize for your offensive comments, Mr. Romney, or we’ll all be out of work and our kids and grandkids will be condemned to a lifetime of insurmountable debt and misery.
Romney in the video: “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.”
