Watch as gubernatorial candidate Mitt Romney explains what he learned as head of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games: how to get money from Washington to pay for local projects. In all, Romney claims that the Federal government chipped in over $410 million to help fund the games, a "huge increase over anything that was done before." This included a scheme where the Department of Education purchased $1 million worth of tickets to the Paralympic Games, with the idea of allowing children to attend the games.
The take-away line:
The whole Winter Games was a combination of Federal, State and local governments along with private enterprise.I guess Romney didn't build the Olympics all by himself.
