It's from Willard's interview with 60 Minutes, to be aired Sunday.
"...I want to make it very clear, I want to help 100 percent of the American people."
Astonishing. Simply Astonishing. The hypocrisy, the dishonesty of such a statement, is simply breathtaking.
THIS IS FROM THE SAME MAN WHO SAID THAT ANY PERSON WHO DOESN'T PAY FEDERAL INCOME TAX IS SOMEONE WHO REFUSES TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR LIFE, THINKS THAT THE GOVERNMENT OWES THEM EVERYTHING, AND CONSIDERS THEMSELF TO BE A VICTIM.
So here are some of the 47% of the American people Willard says he can't worry about, accompanied by what would be Willard's assessment of them:
Refuses to take responsibility for his life. [Vietnam vet.]
Expects everything to be provided to him. [Appalachian man at an employment office]
Sees himself as a victim. [Marine in Afghanistan]
Should get a job and start contributing. [85 year-old disabled woman]
Just want to be dependent on the government. [Middle class family where parents both work but are hard-pressed]
Oh, and by the way, here are the states that have the highest percentage of non-payers (in red) and the states that have the lowest percentage of non-payers (in blue):
Mitt Romney said that those who do not pay federal income taxes are basically bums and freeloaders. Never mind that almost all adults pay some form of taxes. Never mind that even the poorest fifth of Americans pays about 17% of its income in various taxes. Never mind that almost half of those who have no income tax liability are elderly people WHO PAID INTO SOCIAL SECURITY ALL THEIR LIVES.
According to Willard, they want everything handed to them, all of them.
Nothing could be more obvious than the fact that Willard basically despises almost half the American people. And now he wants us to believe that he cares about everyone?
How stupid does he think we are?
