Watch: Romney Defends Writing Off 47 Percent of the Vote
You may have seen the video secretly taken at a Romney Q and A during which the Republican candidate says roughly 47 percent of Americans pay no taxes, depend on the government and will vote for President Obama no matter what.

Below is the original video, which began the controversy, followed by Romney’s lengthy response.
