Romney may cut entitlements for the poor, the elderly and veterans but he won't touch one hair on the heads of those who know how to milk the tax payers for the big bucks like he did.

Romney used taxpayer dollars for the 2002 Salt Lake winter games. More taxpayer dollars were used at Salt Lake than all of the previous U.S.hosted Olympics combined; a heart stopping $1.3 billion dollars. The total cost of the SLC Olympics was around $2.7 billion. That means taxpayers footed about 68% of the bill.(Using tax dollars not for the Olympic Events but to rebuild the infrastructure of the Mormon mecca. Surprised?)

2002 games in Utah- 1.3 billion
1984 games in L.A.- only received $75 million
1996 games in Atlanta - only received $609 million.

Romney used $1.3 billion taxpayer dollars appropriated for Olympic security after 9-11 for:

$161 Million for safety and security services
$30 million for parking lots,
$2 million for sewer systems
$33,000 for an Olympic horse adoption program. <<(wth)

Now if you believe Republicans always tell the truth, will you believe what they are saying, on record, about Romney? Google McCain on 2002 Olympics

John McCain called this a "ripoff of the taxpayers" and "an incredible pork-barrel project for Salt Lake City" was "outrageous" and "a national disgrace. "This figure [$1.3 billion] is breathtaking. The American taxpayer is being shaken down to the tune of nearly a billion-and-a-half dollars for Salt Lake City to host the Winter Olympics. No one would dispute that the federal government should provide whatever support necessary to ensure that the Games are safe for everyone. However, the American taxpayer should not be burdened with building up the basic infrastructure necessary to a city to be able to pull off hosting the Olympic Games."

Romney even bragged in a 2002 debate about the “record amount of money” he received from taxpayers.“That’s the same thing I’ll do as governor of Massachusetts,” he said.“Get more money from the federal government.”
