Hiram College professor Jason Johnson was interviewed by Kerri Miller for The Daily Circuit on Minnesota Public Radio. They discussed the hidden camera footage of Mitt Romney discussing the 47 percent of Americans who do not pay income taxes.
As the presidential race heads into the major push for November, Republican nominee Mitt Romney is battling to frame his comments leaked yesterday from a private fundraiser about his thoughts on Obama voters and their dependence on government. On The Daily Circuit Tuesday, Kerri Miller looked at what role the government should play in our lives.
