47% Not Victims, Yet

Mitt Romney said 47% of Americans "believe they are victims". That statement is premature, those 47% of Americans will only be victims if Mitt Romney is elected president.  Romney wants to replace Medicare with a voucher system, privatize Social Security, cut Pell grants, cut Planned Parenthood,  Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for poor elderly and disabled individuals, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps), school lunches and other child nutrition programs, and unemployment compensation.  Romney wants to give himself and his 1% friends a 20% tax cut (on top of the Bush Tax Cuts), and pay for it by eliminating our social safety net.  Car elevators for the wealthy, while the poor, the elderly and children get the shaft.

Romney Budget Proposals Would Necessitate Very Large Cuts in Medicaid, Education, Health Research and Other Programs
