Will They Defend Mitt?
Pinnell, Bridenstine, and Mullin Agree with Romney’s Statements?


Oklahoma City – Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has now stated that he does not care about 47 percent of Americans.

Do Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell and congressional candidates Markwayne Mullin & Jim Bridenstine agree that 47 percent of the national population does not matter? Do they believe that that middle class starts with those making $250,000 a year?

“The Republican Party is out of touch with the middle class in Oklahoma. They claim to be the party of family values, but have a disclaimer that your family must make at least $250 thousand a year,” said Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Wallace Collins.

Does Markwayne Mullin a Republican who takes $370,000 from the Federal government stimulus believe like Romney that the middle class starts with families that make $250,000 per year?

Does Jim Bridenstine, Republican candidate in Congressional District 1, support a 30 percent tax increase on the middle class, or does he only want to tax the 47 percent that do not matter to him?

Matt Pinnell, the leader of the Republican Party in Oklahoma needs to explain Mitt’s comments to Oklahomans.
