Response to Don’t Blame Mitt Romney:
After all that we have learned about Mr. Romney, anyone who is still making the conscious choice to vote for him is making a fatal mistake. A man who has kept secret his “plan” to add “twelve million” jobs to the economy and who’s policies set back some of the most profoundly important social equality hurdles we have finally managed to overcome is simply not fit to be a President. Women, people of color, any minority: we have all come too far. As a nation, we have come too far. And we are moving forward.
Romney really is just a terrible embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America. Also, anyone attempting to argue that Romney’s plan is “better for people with pre-existing conditions” is fatally mis-informed. There have been major, international, independent studies that not only prove this to be untrue, but show that Mitt Romney’s overall proposed health care “plan” would leave 72 million American people without *any* insurance coverage whatsoever by the year 2020. When you pile this on top of his Racist/Homophobic/Anti-Woman policies it is truly astonishing to imagine that anyone in their right mind would actually think it justifiable voting for him. He and Paul Ryan have voted actually voted, on-record, *against* American women being able to be paid the same rate as American men for the doing the same work. It is 2012. In fifty years he will be looked back on as a major embarrassment for human/civil rights; not to mention, decency.
