After Mitt Romney said that we should let the foreclosure crisis “run its course and hit the bottom,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:
“Mitt Romney’s comment to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that we shouldn’t try and stop the foreclosure crisis but should let it ‘run its course and hit the bottom’ is appalling and wrong. Romney demonstrated yet again just how out of touch he is with Nevadans—a statement so extreme that even right-wing Republican Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller was forced to condemn it.
“While Romney’s comments are appalling, it’s not unexpected from someone who made a fortune firing workers and sending jobs overseas. It should come as no surprise that he wants to let Wall Street write its own rules and thinks that corporations are people. Romney’s not advocating for any policies that would get Americans back to work; he supports doubling down on the failed policies of the past that caused the economy downturn.”
