I think your remark is condescending and insensitive and echoes Romney’s “47 percent of Americans are government freeloaders who see themselves as victims” comment.

With all due respect, I believe that Romney stated shortly after that remark that he was not referring to anyone receiving Social Security or Medicare as he is well aware that these are things that the people have paid into.
