Romney on Money in Politics: Then and Now

Posted on July 16, 2012



During his 1994 Senate campaign, Mitt there is *far* too much money in politics and that campaign spending absolutely needs to be limited. He called for the elimination of PACs, the elimination of special interest groups, and the elimination of corporate donations to politicians.


In 2002, Romney said “I believe in getting money from where the money is. The money’s in Washington.”


Today, Romney beams and brags that his SuperPAC connections and corporate donors will allow him to collect nearly $1 Billion in campaign donations.


And why does this go unchallenged?  Well, Romney summed that up pretty effectively in his May 2012 New York Times opinion when he said in 2002, “Rich people are more intelligent than poor people. That’s why they’re rich.”
