Liberal Regressives won't be laughing for much longer when the labor force continues to shrink and welfare programs dry up because of less tax receipts and Chicago union thuggery looking for even MORE money.
Maybe then this President will finally accept this as HIS economy.

What Mitt Romney said is factual and it has only gotten worse under the self-serving marxist man-child b. h. obama...Those who are working and paying for the blood suckers know what Mitt Romney was saying...
By the time the obama media propagandists are done with Romney he will have murdered another woman and Ryan will have pushed another granny in a wheelchair over a cliff...preposterous.
Never mind the incompetence of obama/hilliary ignoring warnings in Libya that resulted in the horrific deaths of 4 Americans...That's an obamanation.

Like me, he belongs to the half supporting those that don't pay any taxes.

"Victims" entitled to extensive government support like Sandra Fluke invited as a DNC speaker who is past 30 already and thinks the government should fund her entertainment with free contraception and free abortions?

He's right. It's not just welfare anymore. 47% of Americans want the other 53% to pay higher taxes than they ALREADY PAY and pick up their tab. MSNBC is one of the 47%, they paid 0 taxes in 2010 and agitate for Barack to stay on by farting gas ALL DAY.

According to a 2007 Campbell Public Affairs institute survey (PDF),“Democrats are more likely to have used government programs, and much more supportive of government doing more about inequality (74.9 percent) and using government as the vehicle to take action (37.9 percent).” Given a choice between the two parties, 63 percent of welfare recipients go Democratic, 67 percent of food-stamp users, 74 percent of those on Medicaid, and 81 percent of those in public housing.

How 'bout we get the 47% to pay their 'fair share'? just for one tax season. We take the US budget and divide it by adult Us citizens and, since we all get the same amount of gov't, that would be the 'fair share'.

let's see after that year where most Us citizens would not be able to even come close to their fair share if we hear that pathetic whining again.

maybe those of us pulling the cart would even forgive their debt for that yeat if they would just shut the flock up!

I guess you really don't understand the truth when you hear it. You must be one of the 47% sitting on your ass doing nothing but sucking up good air. Romney is correct most of those voting for bozo are the uneducated, be they black, white,or brown that want the government to give them everything, food, clothing, shelter and money in their pockets for doing nothing. Because they feel it's owed to them for being born. Well for my part I have nothing but disgust for them and you.

Come now, that's incorrect. The Islamic Autumn is the result of an obscure 13 minute anti-Islam YouTube video that no one watched, including the Obama administration liars.
