Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney ranks top 10 in the wealthiest candidates ever to run for office.
Unfortunately for Romney, he has not done a good job of distinguishing himself as a member of the 1 percent.
After continued pressure by the media and American people, Romney was forced to release his tax returns yesterday. The tax files show that Romney has a large portion of his wealth stashed away in the Cayman Islands.
On multiple occasions, Mitt Romney has said things that illustrate his arrogance as someone who is extremely wealthy.
Just a day before the New Hampshire primary, Romney told a crowd, “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.”
With unemployment reaching record low numbers and Americans becoming increasingly desperate for jobs, this sort of arrogance is unacceptable.
Romney does not appear to be phased by the fact many Americans are extremely unhappy with many members of the 1 percent for showing absolutely no sympathy for average Americans in the midst of an economic slump.
