‘Political Payoffs and Middle Class Layoffs’


GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign hit back at President Barack Obama with a new TV spot hitting the president’s cozy relationship with donors.

The Romney campaign said Obama’s record is one of “political payoffs and middle class layoffs.”

More than half of Obama’s 47 biggest fundraisers, who each collected at least $500,000 for his campaign, have been rewarded with administration jobs, and nine more have been appointed to presidential boards and committees.
