Romney on a strong America

“What makes America so strong is not the geography of our land. It’s the geography of the American heart,” said former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Romney spoke March 30 about the values he believes make America strong — hard work, education, family — and his concern that “these elements of our culture are weakening and are under attack.

“The attitude of government entitlement, as it spreads through our society, weakens the sense of self-reliance and independence that’s always been part of the American culture.”

During a Q&A, Romney discussed the newly passed health care legislation, addressing its similarities with his plan in Massachusetts and arguing against tax increases, cuts to Medicare and price controls.

“I’d like states being able to do what we did, not the federal government.”
