In Her Own Words: Mitt Romney’s Mother Says Mitt’s Father Lived Off Welfare Handouts [Video]

In a new video unearthed by BuzzFeed, Mitt Romney’s mother, Lenore Romney, is caught on video telling a reporter that her husband was on welfare during the first years of his life.

This is not the first time it has been revealed that Mitt Romney’s father was on welfare. In July, Kulture Kritic published a video of George Romney, Mitt Romney’s father, admitting that his family returned to America with nothing after having fled the Mexican revolution, and had to be fed and housed by the U.S.  government.

In a contentious run-in with a reporter, George Romney said, “I know what’s it’s like to be poor. My family was fed and housed by the United States government.”

Addicting Info reports:

You see, George Romney arrived in El Paso, Texas, as part of 4,000 other refugees fleeing the Mexican Revolution. Once they arrived, the United States did not just wave them by, to let them fend for themselves. Instead, it opened up its arms, welcoming them not only into the United States, but granted to them $250 each, equal to just under of $6,000 today. On top of that, the US provided food, clothing, and supplies. George Romney grew up with his food, housing, and schooling taken care of by the US Government.

So while the right wing calls Obama the “Food Stamp President”, they’re ignoring the fact that the Romneys were sustained by welfare when they returned to America. George Romney’s life and wealth were all made possible by the generosity of American hand-outs. Had it not been for welfare, Mitt Romney wouldn’t be here.

      He used welfare as it was meant. To temporarily carry him through until he was able to get back on his feet. Today’s welfare recipients uses the welfare system as a way of life or a “career”. Big difference…

      Todays system needs to be changed so lazy people cant rely on it for the life blood for their entire life.

        So the hardworking people laid off by big companies who end up on welfare use it as a career?

          Nice attempt to try and spin it. You are obviously a Democrat. Unemployment & welfare were set-up as temporary means for those who fall on hard times. I am not against those who were laid off receiving assistance while looking for work. Thats what it was meant for along with those who truly need it. There are too many who did not get laid off or lost their job through no fault of their own that are abusing the welfare system by being irresponsible parents or just flat out lazy! Matter of fact, one of my closest friends was laid off and was on unemployment and food stamps with his young daughter for 4 months. He told me that we were idiots for working 50-60 hours a week to get by when he was recieving more in aid than he could use. He was a true american and took the first job he was offered even though it was below his qualifications. He later moved back up to where he was.

          Just saying, the Senior Romney used it as a temporary lifeline until he could get it going. That is the way it was meant to work. Not for lazy degenerates having 8 kids so they dont have work because they receive too much in aid to make it worthwhile to go back to work.

          Our welfare system needs to be revised or it will bankrupt the country. Bottomline.

            Not before subsidising the rich. They dont spend the money back into the economy. The rich send the money out of the country and dont pay taxes. Pray and Vote Obama 2012

      These rich racist crackers are the people, who are riping off the welfare system, along with chili chokers and poor crackers! Did you know a meth head cracker, can receive welfare because a methhead is considered a ‘SICKNESS’ and DIS-EASE!!!

      DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE WELFARE CHECKS O’DRAMA GAVE THOSE RICH BANKERS, INSURANCE COMPANIES, AND MORTGAGE COMPANIES, WHO ARE STILL RIPING OFF BLACK AND POOR PEOPLE!!! By the way…they partied with the money, and didn’t help NOBODY, except themselves.

      These methheads receive assistance to go to programs, while getting food stamp cards and insurance!!! While, a Black person, who may be on crack is DENIED benefits because that is called a HABIT!!!

      These slant eyed niggas from asia, also receive benefits, while they keep 10-20 people in a household to receive MORE benefits!!! Once they save enough money, they open up businesses, such as the weave shops, and begin to take negroid’s money, who support them!

      I DON’T GO THERE FOR NOTHING!!!

      Newt said, that more crackers are on welfare, than Blacks!!! I know people, who work for the system, and what old boy Newt said, is correct. These honkeys know, they are the MAIN
      perpa(traitors) on welfare, because they always reverse shyt, so don’t let them fool you!

      The welfare system FIRST BEGAN IN eu(rope) for the poor caucasoid peasants and ex-slaves, the euroPEEans enslaved. Yepper, they WERE THE FIRST TO ENSLAVE THEIR OWN PEOPLE, not Afrikans…that is the LIE they tell us in THEIR his-story/his-LIE books!!!

      CHECK: The origins of the Welfare State in the United Kingdom go back to Elizabethan times. The introduction of the Poor Laws was the first legislative attempt to ensure that the poor had the means to live. This method continued until the Industrial Revolution, when provision for the poor changed. This introduced things such as the Workhouse.

      The unuted snakes of assholes, took on this system…and the rest is his-story!!! REAL TALK! Why do you think amerikkka is OWNED by england?

    These people were also refugees forced to flee Mexico due to the Mexican Revolution and the US helped. Today, millions of illegals are sneaking across because the know they can recieve much more than $6000, all on the US Taxpayers bill. They abuse the system set up to help US citizens on a temporary basis. But then again, so do a lot of sorry ass Americans….

        @dorothy:

        chili chokers ARE NOT NATIVE to amerikkka!!! The Black Afrikan Olmecs are the FIRST AND ORIGINAL people, here in amerikkka!

        CHECK: The earliest people in the Americas were people of the Negritic African race, who entered the Americas perhaps as early as 100,000 years ago, by way of the bering straight and about thirty thousand years ago in a worldwide maritime undertaking that included journeys from the then wet and lake filled Sahara towards the Indian Ocean and the Pacific, and from West Africa across the Atlantic Ocean towards the Americas.
        According to the Gladwin Thesis, this ancient journey occurred, particularly about 75,000 years ago and included Black Pygmies, Black Negritic peoples and Black Australoids similar to the Aboriginal Black people of Australia and parts of Asia, including India. [Paul Barton, Black Civilizations of Ancient America]

        I get tired of listening to these LIES! I would like for you negroids to go to a Black book store and buy some books, and start reading about YOUR True OURstory!!!

        If you are Black, I’m pretty sure there is a Black bookstore near you! If you are a caucasoid, go buy some Black books, too because your his-story/his-LIE, is a LIE!!!

    Some time we forget where we came from and where we got our help from or those that help us along the way.

    Listen to those who are trying to get off Welfare. The system is set up where it’s next to impossible to get off. Granted the system need great improvement. I made the statement once about how lazy people were who receive welfair and that person sat me down and showed me the whole story include the Arithmetic.

      I get what you are saying; I am not saying it should be eliminated. I am saying it is abused by millions everyday. It should audited deeply!!!!

      And those whose abuse it should be jailed. There will always be those who need it and they should get it. But there needs to be an action plan that helps those on it get off it. The govt blindly gives away ungodly amounts of money without proper checks & balances.

      There are grants, loans and other means to help people get their crap together. But why should they when working to make it check-to-check is harder than sitting around waiting for a check funded through the work of others.

    CORPORATE WELFARE IS THE WORSE WELFARE BECAUSE NO ONE TALKS ABT THE RICH WHEN THEY BEG 4 HELP. EVERYONE ALWAYS FOCUS ON THE LITTLE FISH, THE POOR INSTEAD OF THE BIG SPENDERS WITH A LOT OF MONEY WHO STEALS FROM THE POOR 2 FATTEN THEIR ALREADY OVERFLOWING POCKETS. NEVER GO 2 JAIL WHEN CAUGHT. JUST A SLAP ON THE WRIST UNLESS IT MAKES BIG NOISE AND PROTEST, OTHER THEN THAT MOST TIMES FAT RATS RARELY GET CAUGHT WITH THEIR PANTS DOWN WITH UR MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS

    I feel like if you put into the system, you should be able to draw from it if you need to…the way I understand it…there is a cap on how much you can receive and a time limit on how long you can receive it…no matter how many babies you pop out. BTW…has anyone helped out anyone on welfare lately by helping them find a job, resume writing or hired someone…just asking?

    Help, help. I just got out of Northern Mexico — you know the Southwestern states which we know today as the US — after the Mexicans lost it during the war. I need some welfare. It seems they didn’t like us gringos being down there trying to tell them what to do. What? I have to be willing to serve in the US military and risk dying for the right of US based multi-corporations to have access to the natural resources of foreign countries like Vietnam, Irag, Afghanistan, including the oil rich gulf region off the eastern coast of Mexican. No problem. Oops, I forgot. I’m a Mormon and don’t believe in active duty military service for myself and my kind. So I guess I will have to get welfare AND a military obligation exemption. God bless a welfare hand-up, draft exemptions, and Utah the Home of Mark Furman of the LAPD.
