Re "Romney: 47% of Americans 'believe they are victims,' 'dependant on government'" (Tribune, Sept. 18):

So, now that we know how Gov. Mitt Romney feels about the 47 percent of Americans who don't pay federal income taxes — including the elderly, disabled vets, people with large families, etc. — I propose he uses the proven techniques he honed at Bain Capital: Outsourcing.

Just ship those 47 percent, the ones he admitted he doesn't worry about, to China and India.

The costs to maintain those leeches on society will drastically drop once they are overseas.

Problem solved, plus, out of sight, out of mind. Winner!
