Firefighters saved my best friend’s life. On a cold, rainy evening, my friend hit a patch of black ice on the road. His truck flipped off the overpass he was on and fell onto the roadway below. He had broken both legs, an arm, and his jaw, and had gashes on his head and neck. The doctors told him he would have bled to death in less than 3 minutes if help didn’t arrive. Had there not been a fire and rescue squad nearby, he wouldn’t be here.
Mitt Romney thinks we can afford to lay off teachers, firefighters, and police officers. How about letting him know just how wrong he is?
