Bite the hand that feeds?

By From page A6 | November 02, 2012

Not too many months ago, Mitt Romney was photographed, as were some wait staff, and recorded at a $50,000-per-plate fundraiser. “There are 47 percent of the people … who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims … (and) my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” These words from a multi-millionaire.

The folks who prepared and served the food at this event, low-wage service workers, are part of that 47 percent whom Romney disdains.
