Every so often Mitt Romney shares with the American people his observations on the world and its leaders. He recently offered opinions on the behavior of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Mitt is upset because Putin spent over $50 billion to put on an Olympic event while he did the same Olympic event for about $3 billion. According to Mitt, “all that money could be used to do some important things in terms of fighting poverty or fighting disease.” Mitt believes instead of allowing wealthy people in Russia secure billions from creating an Olympics that money should have been spent on ending poverty.
This is an interesting observation from someone who is uninterested in 47% of Americans who do not have much money. This is an unusual comment from someone who believes wealthy people need lower taxes and lower taxes which results in less money to fight poverty or create jobs for those without!
