When Mitt Romney says that 47 percent of the people in this country accept and expect government handouts, he should be including himself and many of his party in that 47 percent. He's ignoring all the corporate welfare he and his wealthy cronies have received. He's also forgetting about all the tax loopholes that are in place — some in very gray areas — to ensure he has a much lower tax rate than salaried people do. Tax returns, Mitt?
Then there is Michele Bachmann's family who happily accept hundreds of thousands of dollars in farm subsidies.
