By now we've all seen the video about how Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney blatantly disses almost half of American citizens (47 percent to be exact) at a closed-door fundraiser, calling them dependent on the government, victims, and not worth his time. As you can imagine, these 47 percent are in an uproar. Posted on a Tumblr account called We Are the 47 Percent: A Project of Tomorrow Mag, the 47 percent show their concern:
"Racked up 50k in debt on locally made craft projects, artisanal canned goods and medical marijuana. Where’s my bailout Obama? WE ARE THE 47%!!!"
"What do you mean I have to give up my unemployment checks just because I got a job? What sort of fascist society IS this? We are the 47 percent."
"I’m stuck w/ Obama because he sends me gov't design checks. WE ARE THE 47%"
"Bought too much kale @ the co-op. Went bad in the fridge. OBAMA!!! WE ARE THE 47%"
"My unemployment check is late so I can’t afford to continue my Kiehl’s skincare regimen. Dry. Flaky. FED UP! WE ARE THE 47%!!!"
"Spent all my $$ on coke and condoms, can’t afford to re-up on my anti-anxiety candy. Where’s my Obamacare? WE ARE THE 47%"
"$20k in debt after associates’ degree in holistic healing. Can barely afford to keep basics in fridge. Haven’t gotten new glasses in years. Where my government @? WE ARE THE 47%!"
