This Is What Plutocracy Looks Like: Romney Suggests Obama Bribed Voters


Failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney was caught on tape in another candid moment with big dollar donors. In an attempt to explain his stunning loss, Romney alleges that President Obama bribed the electorate with “gifts”:


What the president’s campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. What the president did was give them two things. One, he gave them a big gift on immigration with the DREAM Act amnesty program. Number two was Obamacare. Which basically is $10,000 a family.It’s a proven political strategy, which is, give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you. The giving away free stuff is a hard thing to compete with. Forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. And then, finally, ‘Obamacare’ also made a difference for them because, as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people.”
