Romney education remark favors the wealthy…yet again
by Brian Washington
Once again, Mitt Romney’s words are revealing his true allegiance.
During a campaign stop in Virginia June 27, Romney, the presumed Republican nominee for President, said that he wants to make sure that students get as much education “as they can afford.” (Skip to 9:20 in the video below to hear his comments for yourself.)
For wealthy folks like Romney—who’s estimated wealth is approximately a quarter billion dollars—this isn’t a problem.
But if you’re a middle class family struggling to make ends meet, Romney’s statement carries some very grim implications…especially when you consider that a quality public education is key to the economic outlook of working Americans and the country at large.
The bottom line: Mitt Romney’s out of touch with the values and needs of middle class Americans.
Leave a comment below and tell Romney why education shouldn’t only be available to those who can afford it.
