Romney: ‘I’m not concerned about the very poor’

February 1, 2012

'I'm not concerned about the very poor'

“I’m not concerned about the very poor,” Millionaire Mitt Romney told CNN, “we have a safety net there.”

Mr. Romney tried to explain this away: “But we have food stamps, we have Medicaid, we have housing vouchers, we have programs to help the poor.” That’s, um, rich, coming from a party that wants to cut food stamps and Medicaid and a candidate who would shrink the social safety net to the size of a Gucci bag just when we need it most.
