Is that the platform Romney is supposed to be running on? More food stamps, more Medicaid, more public housing, more unemployment extensions and more wealth transfer? The MSM sure seems to think so.
In an interview with CNN Wednesday morning that should have been a Florida victory lap, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney made a fumble that could give rivals an attack ad sound bite.
Asked about his economic plan, Romney said repeatedly that he was not concerned with very poor Americans, but was focused instead on helping the middle class.
Romney explained that he was confident that food stamps, housing vouchers, Medicaid and other assistance would keep the poor afloat — he pledged to fix holes in that safety net “if it needs repair.” He repeated past statements that his main focus is the middle class because those people, in his opinion, have been hardest hit by the recession
If claiming that he is going to focus on the middle class is wrong, I don’t want him to be right.
