Connie Mack comes to Romney's side on '47 percent' comments



Don't count Connie Mack among the Senate candidates trying to distance themselves from Mitt Romney's 47 percent comments.

"Clearly Mitt Romney was discussing our economic system, which because of excessive government interference, often hurts the very people it's meant to help and creates a tax system that is wildly disproportional across our economy," Mack said in a statement to the Buzz. "Government must be restructured to be effective and efficient, with a tax system that is more simple and fair."
