Special Elevator for Romney, just not for Grandma

What was Mitt Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts? It is not like he told us. Romney used over 800 vetoes as governor.  Buzzfeed has information about two of those vetoes: 

...On June 26, 2006 Romney vetoed an improvement project with the price tag of $40,000 with his line item veto. The project would have allocated the money to Woburn Development Authority for improvements to an elevator to meet the standards set in the ADA.

Also on that day Romney vetoed an additional $25,000 to the Braintree, Massachusetts Council on Aging. The money was again proposed to meet improvements with the ADA....

....As Governor, Romney kept a private elevator in the statehouse locked exclusively for his personal use. The elevator became a symbol of his distance from the press and the state legislature, as veteran lawmakers complained about a lack of access to the Governor. After Romney finished his term, the elevator was reopened...

Romney is sooooooooooooooooo accustomed to having special treatment because he is so rich. Romney probably thought that he was more deserving of his own elevator rather some disabled or elderly people. Can you imagine what he'd be like as President?  He'd probably think he was elected king.

Romney seems to have an obsession with elevators---elevators for cars, no elevators for disabled or elderly, and a special elevator when he was governor.

Today former President Bill Clinton was in Parma, Ohio. President Clinton said to Ohioans,  "....when Ohio was down, when Ohio was out, President Obama had Ohio's back. Now you have to have his back."

Vote for President Obama. He saved Ohio's economy. Vote Democratic because they share your values-- families, equality, justice, fairness.
