Wyoming Democrats take aim at GOP Presidential candidates
The Chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party says the country will soon be facing a battle over things that most thought were settled in America. Chuck Herz took the opportunity of Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's visit to the state to attack Romney's lean to the right of the Republican Party and took after other Republican hopefuls as well. Herz says many of the proposals by Republicans concern him.
"Whether we are going to have an extreme approach that considers government almost always the enemy, thus doing away with many, many protections that we have, not only social security, Medicare, but regulations that protect us and protect the natural world that we like to hunt and recreate in here in Wyoming."
Herz is very concerned about the Republican Party's tax strategy that insists that the wealthy make no sacrifice and that the middle class carry the burden of getting the country back on track.
