Mitt Romney has gotten rich through his past work with Bain Capital. Newt Gingrich labeled him as a “vulture capitalist” during one of the Republican debates. Romney outsourced jobs and eliminated people’s livelihoods to attain his wealth.

He hasn’t told the public how he plans to create jobs, other than to cut teachers, firemen, police and other public sector employees (along with the Public Broadcasting Service). He proposes giving more tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires.

His plan for Medicare — turning it into a voucher program — will leave a lot of people destitute. He passed Romneycare in Massachusetts but wants to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, leaving many Americans without health care insurance.

He insulted many veterans, along with senior citizens and disabled people on Social Security and Medicare, when he stated that 47 percent of Americans don’t pay taxes and feel entitled.

Mitt Romney is the problem, not the solution.
