Put another way, we all want and benefit from cheap goods and services. To that end, society creates millions of low paying jobs to support our many businesses and institutions. These jobs rarely provide a living wage, yet someone has to fill them. They are filled by the working poor. Without their contribution our society could not exist.


Mitt Romney's comments about the 47% of Americans who pay no federal taxes were more than just a gaffe. They reflect a complete lack of respect for the contributions made in our society by those less fortunate than he. Some would argue that he was just pandering to his millionaire contributors. But the beliefs that he expressed would never have occurred to me. No matter how he tries to spin it, the comments he made reflect a core belief system that, in my opinion, disqualifies him from being President of the United States.
