From CNN's Carol Costello:
According to a CNN/ORC poll, the majority of Americans think Wall Street bankers are dishonest, greedy and overpaid. Rick Perry capitalized on this sentiment yesterday on CNBC when he called Mitt Romney a "fat cat," a term that is toxic these days.
Although Romney is not a banker, with an estimated net worth of up to 250 million dollars, he's as rich as one. However, just because he's rich, doesn't mean he's heartless. Romney says his business savvy can create what working Americans need the most.
At a town hall meeting in Iowa, Romney told supporters, "For me, one of the key criteria in looking at tax policy is to make sure that we help the people that need the help most, and in our country, the people who need the help most are not the poor, who have a safety net, not the rich, who are doing just fine, but the middle class."
