What a welcome, what a place this is. My goodness. Who would have imagined pizza could build this, you know that? This is really something. Don’t you love this country? What a home this is, what grounds these are, the pool, the golf course. You know if a Democrat were here he’d look around and say no one should live like this, you know? Republicans come here and say everyone should live like this, all right. This is a real tribute to America, to entrepreneurship.Hey, Mitt, I'd love it if everyone could live well, if every job paid enough that people could not just keep their heads above water on their wages but have enough left over to eat out occasionally, maybe take a vacation. But while I'm actually not sure it would be feasible for everyone in the country to have their own private golf course, what I am sure of is that Mitt Romney's policies make it less likely that everyone will do well. Mitt Romney isn't supporting policies that would help lift up people clinging desperately to the middle class. He's supporting Paul Ryan's plan to massively cut services for low-income people and make 22 million people go hungry. Romney would cut taxes, though, for people who can already afford a pool or even a golf course.
So what Mitt is really saying is not that he wants everyone to have a private golf course. It's that everyone who matters to him is already close to being able to afford it, and he wants to pass policies that would put those people over the top. The rest? Well, he's "not concerned with the very poor," but his policies make clear he's also not concerned with the many, many workers who are getting by now but are just one disaster and less than three months away from poverty.
