Somerville, MA - Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren issued the following statement on Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's comments dismissing 47% of Americans:
"Mitt Romney just wrote off half the people in Massachusetts and half the people in America as deadbeats. Mitt Romney doesn't understand that millions of people are working their hearts out, and paying plenty in taxes. He just doesn't know what people's lives are really like.
"There's a clear choice in the 2012 election and Mitt Romney just made it clearer. It's between those who say "I've got mine and the rest of you are on your own,' and those who say "We're all in this together.'
"Scott Brown is strongly supporting Mitt Romney for president of the United States. I'm strongly supporting Barack Obama."
