"Help Is On The Way?" You're Making Me Laugh, Mitt
The hollow man makes another hollow promise. After winning the Northeastern primaries, Mitt Romney, heir apparent to the Republican Crown, suggested that once he was president, "Help would be on the way."
Why was what Romney said so odd? Romney referenced a single woman during his victory speech. She had two children and worked two jobs. Mitt Romney said he could empathize with her plight. He said he could understand how difficult her life was and that he wanted her to know, that, " Help is on the way."
What kind of help? Maybe Romney was referring to the Ryan Budget Bulldozer that would clear a path to a "third job" for this struggling mom.
Romney recently agreed that student loan interest rates shouldn't go up right now. He admitted that there were few jobs for college grads and the interest rates should remain low. That's the first empathetic thing Romney has expressed during his campaign.
Republicans say they want to help people to do more more for themselves.
Who are the people Republicans want to help the most? The middle class. Right?
Romney and the Teapublican Party think every middle class person should have the opportunity to work three jobs. Cutting Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security for Americans should give them the incentive to work harder.
Will Romney and Paul Ryan take away the rich's entitlement programs? Now I'm laughing because many people think they shouldn't. Some believe those rich people work harder than the rest of us.
As long as Citizens United allows unlimited money to influence our elections and pay for these kind of messages, we'll not have a "fair shot and a fair shake" in America.
