Romney not interested in improving lives

Mitt Romney’s negative response to the approval of the Affordable Care Act was a slap in the face to all working people. His reply was similar to the cut-and-run policy used when he was CEO of Bain Capital. It clearly reflects his belief that blue collar and under employed employees are not worthy of improvement to their standard of living; but are to be treated as pawns for profit.

It is his way of improving our economy. I don’t think so and I doubt if the millions of Americans under 65 without or limited medical coverage do either. Why is it so difficult for Republicans to give some help to the 99 percent of us trying to provide a decent living for our families?
