|" I'm Not Concerned About Poor People..."|
What is in that everything else. Well, if the family is lucky, they have an old piece of shit car that hopefully is fairly reliable, but still needs gasoline at around $3.60 a gallon. Think it a fair assumption that said family would use ten gallons of gasoline a week running kids around, going grocery shopping, and driving to and from a minimum wage (or just above it) job at Walmart. Four weeks is forty gallons of gas means another dip into that tight budget of $144. Not to worry, they still have another $50 left for the incidentals like soap, shampoo, toilet paper and the rest....OH FUCK...one of the kids gets sick, comes home early from school with a very bad cold, or even worse the flu. Have you priced cough medicine lately, not to mention the cost of a visit to the doctors. Two kids...they run through things like SHOES...hello, they are growing like weeds, and even sneakers at Walmart these days are going to set you back $20-$30 bucks a pair. Socks, underwear, and the occasional new pair of blue jeans because the old ones don't fit any more.
Your callous remark Mr. Romney shows average Americans just how out of touch with our reality you really and truly are. Yet, you want us to trust you to turn this country around, want us to believe that you both know and feel our pain. I don't think so. You may show up at campaign stops wearing a pair of blue jeans, doing your best to act like one of us, but lets be honest, YOU ARE NOT, and NEVER WILL BE.
