Is Mitt simply so blinded by his own well-born existence and personal ambition that he cannot or chooses not to see or know 47 percent of America?

As I’m sure you know by now, Romney said (during a private fund-raiser which was secretly taped) that the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal income taxes are people who are "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it".

He also said: "My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

I have some questions for Mitt:

* Is a medically fragile 77 year old who relies on Medicare to pay for her doctor visits and hospital stays a “dependent victim” you shouldn't worry about? Should that patient be deprived of the guaranteed coverage of Medicare so that she can instead “take personal responsibility” by seeking insurance in the private market courtesy of a voucher program?  Should an 81 year old with dementia be denied the Medicaid she needs to pay for nursing home care, because she [wrongly?!] "believes government has a responsibility" to care for her?

* Are our service members who return home from Iraq or Afghanistan with physical, mental, and/or emotional injuries that necessitate the use of the Veteran’s health benefits or disability compensation failing to “take personal responsibility”

* Is the parent who works two minimum wage jobs yet still needs food stamps to make ends meet and Medicaid/CHIP, to ensure her child has health care, failing to “take personal responsibility”?

* Is the young enlisted soldier who doesn't make enough money to pay federal income taxes and whose family needs food stamps to get by failing to "take personal responsibility”?

* Is the young adult who uses federal student loans to be the first person in her family to attend college failing to “take personal responsibility”?

* Is the senior citizen who uses his Social Security benefits to help him be able to afford to stay in his own home failing to “take personal responsibility”?

* Is the laid off factory worker who collects unemployment benefits to make sure her family does not become homeless while she is looking for a new job failing to “take personal responsibility”?

* Are the two parents in a household who make less than 32K a year with two children, and after deductions owe no federal income tax, failing to "take personal responsibility"?

These are just some of the people Romney was disparaging, who he believes do not "care for their lives", and therefore are not his "job to worry about"

are your parents, your children, our soldiers and your neighbors; the Americans that Romney is not concerned about. 

Romney doesn't see any of them.
