Romney: Government Shouldn't Redistribute Wealth

Except for, of course, the many things the right wants to subsidize, like defense contracts


Mitt Romney today defended comments he made in a leaked video where he's heard saying nearly half of Americans are "victims" who rely on government handouts.

In his first extended interview since a controversy erupted over comments made to donors, Romney told Fox News that his intent was to highlight a "great divide" facing voters in the election.
