One of the most notable parts of the first presidential debate was what wasn't mentioned: Mitt Romney's now-famous remarks saying that 47 percent of the American public is "dependent on government."

I was so pleased to hear Joe repeat, on several occasions, what Mitt thinks of 47% of Americans. He brought up the saving of the auto industry and even brought up Grover Norquist's tax pledge --which I'm sure many Americans are not even aware of. His knowledge and experience were evident. The Republicans can laugh at him all they want --but this man knows of what he speaks because he's lived it! There was nothing Ryan brought up that Joe wasn't able to effectively rebut --and his years of first-hand experience and wisdom were evident.

The 47% comment by Romney is not unique amongst the wealthy. I have heard the words "don't overpay the help cause it'll spoil them " for decades. The rich and their corporations pay low wages and won't share their profits the workers help to create unless they are forced to. Then they mock people for being poor. Apparently, Romney & the rich who are like him have no idea Poverty isn't because of a lack of character ...its a lack of money due to a lack of opportunity due to a lack of investment . It is a time when society turns its back and makes you invisible like they were trying to do so at that particular fund-raising of $50,000 a plate in the richest community in the USA.


that if people are poor
