Mitt Romney opened up: http://nyti.ms/OAWXvG
“47 percent of the people” who will vote for Mr. Obama “no matter
what.” They are, he says, “dependent upon government, who believe that
they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to
care for them.”
Right now, 47% refers to the polling numbers for Obama. What makes me
mad is the current conservative commentary that 51% of Americans pay
no federal taxes. However, they do pay income taxes. Here is a break
down of a portion of that number that don't pay federal taxes:
25% pay payroll taxes.
10% are retired.
6% are people who earn below the limit of federal tax limit.
The above I saw on CNN.
Here's a nasty statistic that Romney forgot: Candidate Obama got a
majority of the white, college educated vote in the last election. I
acknowledge President Obama has lost a lot of that support.
