While the U.S. Supreme Court debates the constitutionality of Obamacare over in D.C., GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has made sure to keep his distance from the debate — literally. The former Massachusetts governor, who has been criticized himself over “Romneycare,” traveled some 3,000 miles to the Bay Area, where he hosted a private fundraising event in Redwood City last night.
A Romney reception was at the Hotel Sofitel San Francisco
Bay, where tickets to get in the door started at $1,000 per person went as high as $25,000.
Of course, Romney's presence didn't go undisputed — and that was the entertainment for the night. The fun-loving Raging Grannies and disgruntled occupiers staged an unusual protest outside the hotel, where they mocked the presidential hopeful with their adopted billionaire personas.
