Romney’s 18 Lies of the Week…

Steve Benen, over at the Rachel Maddow Blog, has been documenting Romney’s lies for 16 weeks. You can see this week’s list HERE.

My 2 favorites:

9. In New Hampshire, Romney said Obama is “focused on taking away from those who have the least.”

That’s blatantly untrue in an ironic sort of way. Romney’s tax plan calls for higher taxes on those at the lowest end of the income scale. He also intends to cut food stamps, Medicaid, and educational spending, which benefit those who have the least.

10. Romney also vowed, “I want to help the poor.”

First, see #9. Second, he specifically said earlier this year, “I’m not very concerned about the poor.”

I know the poor are thrilled that Romney wants to help them…help them right out of society.

  1. aw, don’t you know he was just kidding about the poor. He already knows they have a good safety net. Okay, I am being sarcastic.
