By Mitt Romney’s logic, it should also be also be unthinkable to downsize government, because government is also made up of people. I’m talking about the EPA, the IRS, Housing and Urban Development. I’m talking about government agencies that employ people. What do Republicans think civil servants are? Little men from Mars? When they cut government, people lose jobs.
Mitt Romney: “Businesses are comprised of people. I’m talking about repair shops, and gas stations, and beauty salons, and restaurants. I’m talking about Apple computer, and Facebook, and Microsoft. I’m talking about businesses that employ people. It’s really astonishing to me that the Obama folks would try and argue that businesses aren’t people. What do they think they are? Little men from Mars? But when they tax business, they tax people.”
