Sanders said, “What really galls me is, we’ve got millions of people in
this country who come from families like my own – working class families
– people who have worked hard their entire lives, working 50-60 hours
per week and now they’re on Medicare — now they’re on Social Security
and they’re being lectured that they have got to take personal
responsibility and care for their lives. Being lectured by him. This
speaks of an extraordinary arrogance on the part of Romney and his
ruling class friends.”
Continuing on Sanders added, “As if people on Medicare and Social
Security are inferior human beings who need guidance — who are not smart
enough to take personal responsibility for their lives and care for
their lives. What does it tell us about his attitude toward the vast
majority of people?”
“People in this country work harder than people in any
other industrialized country on Earth. They don’t need to be lectured by
millionaires and billionaires about the work ethic that the fulfill.”
To be sure, folks who have worked a lifetime, do not need a room full of
elites deeming them to be unworthy. Those divisive comments made by
Romney while in his comfort zone, are even keeping Republicans at bay — distancing themselves over his disdain for half of our country.
To have this Republican candidate as president of our great country is
to have our nation treated as if it’s a business and Romney is the CEO.
The problematic area in this thought is that the people do not work for
the President. The President works for the people — all of the people.
