Dear Mr. Romney,
1) The major reason why so many people owe no federal income tax is because of Republican insistence on tax cuts for the wealthy. In order to artificially, unfairly reduce taxes for the wealthy, everyone’s taxes had to go down. It is far more offensive that wealthy American pay too little taxes than that poor Americans do. Obviously.
2) Everyone is entitled to health care, food, and housing. Everyone is. Everyone.
3) If you fail to understand #2, you are not only unfit to be president, you are also doing a pretty crappy job of being human.
