Thom Hartmann: Mitt Romney say's he's "Not concerned with the very poor?"

Thom plus logo
No surprises - Mitt Romney on the Florida primary last night by 15 points over Newt Gingrich. The Romney campaign - with the help of SuperPACs funded by Wall Street billionaires - carpet-bombed the state with TV ads - airing 13,000 TV ads, compared to Newt Gingrich who only aired 200.
But if Romney thought the race would be over soon - he thought wrong. Last night, Gingrich gave a speech to supporters in front of a sign reading "46 states to go." And thanks to the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision - Newt CAN keep running until the end of the primary race - as long as he has casino millionaires cutting him checks.
Meanwhile - in a victory interview with CNN last night, Romney admitted that he's "not concerned with the very poor" in America because they have a "safety net there." Of course, it's a safety net that Romney and Republicans in Congress are trying to get rid of. Currently - almost half the nation is in poverty or low-income - meaning the Republican front-runner for President just admitted he's not considered with half of all Americans.
