Not to mention the roads, clean water, streetlights, police departments, fire departments, clean air, libraries, public transit, electricity, etc. that all came from the government and enabled my mother and I to stay alive and live good, educated, safe and healthy lives.

Mitt Romney came from extreme wealth. He has never once needed financial assistance from the government, as his family had millions and millions of dollars at their disposal. But there are millions and millions and millions of Americans like me who didn’t come from extreme wealth and who needed help with education and food and health care and shelter, but who have gone on to start businesses and pay taxes.
