Mike Fitzpatrick got caught on tape echoing Mitt Romney’s nutty Makers vs. Takers worldview in front of some Tea People:
In the recording, Fitzpatrick talks briefly about a group he meets with in Lower Bucks County on a couple of Sundays each year called the Committee for Common Sense, and then explains what the group believes in.
“One of the principles is that we need to support people who have a history and know what it is like to sign the front of a paycheck, not the back of a paycheck,” Fitzpatrick says in the recording. “The front of a paycheck also includes you took a risk and you build a business on your own — without the federal government standing next to you as you’re signing a personal guarantee. It’s just you and your wife and your banker; you know that’s it.”
The crowd laughs as Fitzpatrick says “not the back of the paycheck.”
The remarks, released Monday by the Democratic Party, were made at a fundraiser for Kitchen Table Patriots, a tea party group, that included Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Smith.
