Citáty Mitt Romney

„Je s ním 47 procent lidí, kteří jsou závislí na vládě, kteří si myslí, že jsou oběti, kteří si myslí, že vláda se o ně má postarat, že mají právo na zdravotní péči, na stravu, na bydlení, na všechno. Nikdy je nepřesvědčím, že mají mít osobní odpovědnost a postarat se o svůj život.
-- o Obamovi“

„I'm not concerned about the very poor.“

—  Mitt Romney
2012, Context: I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich — they're doing just fine. CNN Interview, quoted in

„I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.“

—  Mitt Romney
2012, Context: I want individuals to have their own insurance. That means the insurance company will have an incentive to keep you healthy. It also means if you don't like what they do, you can fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me. You know, if someone doesn't give me a good service that I need, I want to say I'm going to go get someone else to provide that service to me. Speech to Chamber of Commerce in Nashua, New Hampshire, , quoted in

„Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom.“

—  Mitt Romney
Faith in America speech, 2007, Context: Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom. Freedom opens the windows of the soul so that man can discover his most profound beliefs and commune with God. Freedom and religion endure together, or perish alone.

„Look, you can't have any illegals working on our property. I'm running for office, for Pete's sake.“

—  Mitt Romney
2011, Context: Rick, I don't think I've ever hired an illegal in my life... We had a lawn company to mow our lawn, and they had illegal immigrants, and when that was pointed out to us, we let them go... So we went to the company and we said, "Look, you can't have any illegals working on our property. I'm running for office, for Pete's sake. I can't have illegals." CNN Republican presidential debate, Los Angeles, , quoted in

„So, all total, the tax rate is really closer to 45 or 50%.“

—  Mitt Romney
2012, Context: Jorge Ramos: You just released your tax returns. In 2010 you only paid 13% of taxes while most Americans paid much more than that. Is that fair? Mitt Romney Well, actually, I released two years of taxes and I think the average is almost 15%. And then also, on top of that, I gave another more 15% to charity. When you add it together with all of the taxes and the charity, particularly in the last year, I think it reaches almost 40% that I gave back to the community. One of the reasons why we have a lower tax rate on capital gains is because capital gains are also being taxed at the corporate level. So as businesses earn profits, that's taxed at 35%, then as they distribute those profits as dividends, that's taxed at 15% more. So, all total, the tax rate is really closer to 45 or 50%. Jorge Ramos: But is it fair what you pay, 13%, while most pay much more than that? Mitt Romney Well, again, I go back to the point that the, that the funds are being taxed twice at two different levels. interview with Univision

„So my campaign is about the 100% in America, and I'm concerned about them. I'm concerned about the fact that over the past four years life has become harder for Americans. More people have fallen into poverty, more people we just learned have had to go onto food stamps. When the President took office 32 million were on food stamps, today 47 million people are on food stamps.“
