Romney: 'Great divide' exists over tax philosophy


Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says there's a "great divide" in the country between those who want to take wealth and pass it around and those who want to earn money for themselves.

In an interview Tuesday with Fox News Channel, Romney said redistributing wealth is "an entirely foreign concept."

Romney is trying to quiet criticism after a secretly recorded video captured him saying almost half of Americans don't pay income taxes.

He says Americans want the privilege of having good jobs and solid incomes.

Romney says people who receive government benefits are likely to back President Barack Obama's re-election because Romney's message of lower taxes won't matter to those who don't pay income taxes.
