Moby has penned an editorial on the topic of Mitt Romney’s “47% speech.” In it, Moby makes the case for his membership in that 47%, and that whatever “handouts” him and his mother received were paid forward and in full. You can read the piece at The Huffington Post:
I was the only child of a single working mom. We struggled a lot economically, and there were times when we lived off of food stamps, social security and government assistance. And then when i went to the University of Connecticut and SUNY Purchase, I received Pell grants and student loans.
So, according to Mitt Romney, I was part of the 47 percent “who are dependent upon government… who pay no income tax.” He made clear that his “job is not to worry about those people. [He]‘ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
