During last week’s presidential debate, Mitt Romney fired Big Bird. He said that Big Bird was dependent on government funds and thus part of the 47 percent — therefore he would be part of his budget cuts.

Now Big Bird will be unemployed. He will have to get unemployment, but Romney also wants to cut that from his budget.

Big Bird could apply for food stamps, but that also will be cut.

Without a job, he can’t pay his mortgage, so Big Bird could lose his house. Without a job, he won’t be able to pay for health insurance, which he will also lose.

Because Romney fired Big Bird, he would be homeless, hungry and have no health insurance.

Poor Big Bird.
