Romney the freeloader

Mitt Romney says the 47 percent of Americans who support President Barack Obama “are people who pay no income tax … believe they are victims … (and) my job is not to worry about those people … I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

Romney is a tax freeloader who rides the wave of a rigged tax system from which he directly profits. Frankly, Romney makes orders of magnitude more money than I do, yet my income tax burden – my income tax rate – is more than twice as much as Romney’s.

To accuse Obama supporters like me of not taking personal responsibility and care for our lives is insulting, and reveals his disdain for hardworking Americans. Romney is the one who does not pull his own weight, does not pay his fair share, and then has the audacity to accuse me and others of being parasites.

I challenge Romney to disclose the last 10 years of his tax returns and let the American people decide just who is the tax freeloader.
