Romney really doesn’t care about the Poor—Just look at his Policies

2/1/12 Mitt Romney’s foot landed in his mouth again today when he said, ”I’m not concerned about the very poor.” He was trying to say that his focus would be on helping the middle class. But Romney’s policies represent an all-out assault on the poor and the safety net he said is there to protect the poor. Romney supports the Paul Ryan budget plan, which cuts $700 billion from Medicaid, $127 billion in food stamps and slashes Pell Grants in half for low-income college students. Romney would cut taxes on the rich and raise taxes by 60% on low-income families. So, when Mitt Romney says he’s not concerned about the poor, believe him. He’s telling the truth.
