I’m not concerned about the very poor.
– Mitt Romney, yesterday morning, during a CNN interview. To be fair, he followed up the above comment with the following: “We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich; they’re doing just fine.”
I would like to ask Romney about his detailed plans to repair the “safety net” and whether limiting unemployment insurance if a part of that terrific plan.

… Rest assured that Mitt Romney is not going to be spending a single second fretting about the problems of really, really poor people. His supporters can breathe a sigh of relief. Now all they’re going to have to worry about is the fact that he’s going to keep talking like this for the next nine months.
