You People? – What Did Ann Romney Say About Mitt’s Taxes on GMA? – There’s a Debate Online.

Was it – “And we’ve given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how — you know, how we live our life.”

Or was it – “And we’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how — you know, how we live our life.”

Our ruling after reviewing the original audio is that she did not include the “you.”

The Road Argument at a Truck Repair Shop – Mitt Romney went to a truck repair shop today to argue that President Obama was wrong to say businesses rely on the government services like road building.

Today at that truck repair shop, which Democrats would probably argue relies on roads – Romney again stuck on the point:  ”When the president said, If you got a business you didn’t build it, come here and talk to Brian and you’ll learn that in fact he did build this business,” Romney said, signaling to Brian Maloney, the owner of Middlesex Truck & Coach. http://abcn.ws/NB3dkc
