NAACP says Romney’s Agenda Is ‘Antithetical’ to Black People
The NAACP thanks Mitt Romney for showing up at its convention, but the civil rights group makes clear it is opposed to his message.
Romney, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, was booed today when he criticized some of President Obama’s policies, especially his health care law.
Romney said on Fox News that he “expected” to get the reception that he did, adding that he wasn’t going to change his campaign message.
“While we are glad that Governor Romney recognized the power of the black electorate, he laid out an agenda that was antithetical to many of our interests,” NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a statement.
“His criticism of the Affordable Care Act, legislation that will improve access to quality health care for millions, signals his fundamental misunderstanding of the needs of many African Americans,” Jealous said.
