Romney won’t protect poor and middle class

Despite Gov. Mitt Romney’s policy reversals and disavowal of previously stated positions, the choice in the presidential election should be clear. Regardless of who wins the White House, the next administration must and will address the debt and deficit by a combination of measures, including tax reform and spending cuts.
The question is: Who do you trust to reform the tax code and cut spending in a balanced, fair manner while protecting the poor and the middle class? Do those who support Romney and Paul Ryan realize they’re voting to end Medicare; block grant Medicaid; privatize Social Security; voucherize education; restrict women’s rights; decimate regulations protecting the environment, consumers and investors; and endorse tax breaks that will disproportionately benefit the wealthy while eliminating tax deductions popular with the average American?
