Meet Mr. Romney’s: Trashman, Auto Repai

Meet Mr. Romney’s: Trashman, Auto Repairman, Sanitation Worker – Straight From “His” Neighborhood http://bit.ly/QTWqnF “My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney’s trash,” the man says to the camera in the 60-second Web ad. “We’re kind of like the invisible people, you know. He doesn’t realize, you know, that the service we provide, you know, if it wasn’t for us, you know, it would be a big health issue, us not picking up trash.” “Picking up 15, 16 tons by hand, you know that takes a toll on your body,” Hayes continued. “When I’m 55, 60 years old, I know my body’s going to be break down. Mitt Romney doesn’t care about that.” The head of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which produced the spot, says it’s a direct response to the Republican presidential nominee’s controversial “47 percent” comments that have dogged him of late. “Mitt Romney’s ’47 percent’ videotape revealed his contempt for tens of millions of Americans,” AFSCME President Lee Saunders wrote in a blog post . “Romney seems only to be relaxed and at ease when he is surrounded by other millionaires and people willing to pay $50,000 to share a meal with him. And it is only those wealthy donors who get to know what is really on his mind. They spend more money than most Americans make in a year to ask Mitt Romney questions and listen to his reckless banter about Americans like Richard Hayes.” – Yahoo News Temo repairs the City of San Diego fire trucks that service Mitt Romney’s $12 million oceanfront villa in La Jolla, Calif.
