Speak Out: Mitt Romney on Obama Voters
In secret video, GOP presidential candidate says almost half the nation is "victims who depend on the government."
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is dealing with the fallout over a video - taken at a private fundraiser and leaked to left-leaning Mother Jones magazine - in which Romney said nearly half the country are voters who don't pay taxes and are "dependent on government" and "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing,"
Romney said at the fundraiser in Florida earlier this year that 47 percent of the country is going to vote for President Barack Obama for those reasons. He says it is his job to attract swing voters.
Romney later said his statement was "not elegantly stated" and was "spoken off the cuff."
