| by Michael Allen

GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney appeared on CNN this morning to say that he was not concerned with the very rich or the very poor, claiming the latter had ample social safety nets (video below).

But he failed to mention his proposed tax cuts favor wealthy investors, while the number of impoverished Americans grows.

Romney said: "I’m not concerned with the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich, they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of the America."

"The challenge right now, we will hear from the Democrat party the plight of the poor. And there’s no question it’s not good being poor. And we have a safety net to help those that are very poor, but campaign is focused is on middle-income Americans. My campaign, you can choose where to focus. You can focus on the rich, that’s not my focus. You can focus on the very poor, that’s not my focus."
