We Are The 47 Percent: Government-Dependent Citizens Make Whiny Signs

Mitt Romney

By now we’ve all seen the video about how Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney blatantly disses almost half of American citizens (47 percent to be exact) at a closed-door fundraiser, calling them dependent on the government, victims, and not worth his time. As you can imagine, these 47 percent are in an uproar. Posted on a Tumblr account called We Are the 47 Percent: A Project of Tomorrow Mag, the 47 percent show their concern:

“Racked up 50k in debt on locally made craft projects, artisanal canned goods and medical marijuana. Where’s my bailout Obama? WE ARE THE 47%!!!”

“What do you mean I have to give up my unemployment checks just because I got a job? What sort of fascist society IS this? We are the 47 percent.”
