    Why don't you ask Mitt's people about Acusphere and Spherics Inc. Both Companies received State Funds from Massachusetts under Romney, both companies were run by heavy Romney Campaign donors and both companies ended up in bankruptcy and never paid back the loans. If we are going to be fair, why don't we ask Romney's people about this?
