Mitt Romney is only 50 percent on the mark when discussing citizen welfare.

He says, “We shouldn’t measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. We should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job.” There, he’s 100 percent right.

Now, since corporations are people, he never mentions corporate welfare and never says how many banks collected corporate welfare and are smiling and reaping the autumn harvest in the name of huge profits.

Maybe Romney thinks we should continue our compassion and measure corporate welfare by joining the U.S. Justice Department and silently keep letting bankers and robo signers from doing jail time for mortgage fraud and forgery.
