Why Romney really lost

I am tired of hearing from the media outlets that only rich, old, white, men voted for Romney. I am a 40-year-old middle-class housewife and I voted for Romney. Obama was re-elected because he gave people what they wanted. Free comes with a price. You can’t just tax the rich and fix the deficit.

Democrats and Liberals are all in a fuss because small businesses are going to have to raise their prices to pay for the free healthcare. They can’t afford it. A business is not a service people get into out of the goodness of their heart. They want to make money if they don’t make enough money they go out of business and people lose their jobs. It is not hard to understand.

The car companies that took that bail out money they went to China, it is fact. The Chinese love GM. GM built 13 factories with your money in China. The unions you think help you, well your Twinkies may become a thing of the past because Hostess can’t afford to pay what the union is asking, and more people lose their jobs. Obamacare is going to cost jobs, there are a lot of Christian organizations that simply won’t operate under all that regulation, and they will close, more people out of work. Small business won’t hire full-time workers.

Beautiful, red Utah didn’t count and our votes didn’t count and now we all will pay for the freebies.
