Putting the lie to one of Romney’s ridiculous arguments

Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is becoming notorious for peddling preposterous falsehoods along the campaign trail. (There’s a whole bunch of such stuff HERE.)

The chart above (from Jared Bernstein’s BLOG) deals with just one of Romney’s ludicrous arguments — his claim that federal low-income programs are administered so inefficiently that “very little of the money that’s actually needed by those that really need help, those that can’t care for themselves, actually reaches them.”

Doesn’t Romney realize that the easily refutable nonsense he dishes out to gullible Republican audiences is going to come back to diminish his credibility in the long run? The man is a fact-checker’s dream come true.
