Romney's $10,000 Bet

During the Republican debate in Des Moines, Iowa, last night, Mitt Romney challenged Rick Perry on his assertions regarding Romney's health care record.

"I'm just saying, you're for individual mandates, my friend," Perry said to Romney.

"You've raised that before, Rick, and you're simply wrong," Romney responded, extending his hand toward Perry. "Rick, I'll tell you what: 10,000 bucks?"

Perry laughed it off: "I'm not in the betting business."

Romney is now drawing more fire for his privileged life and personal wealth. The Democratic National Committee has already created an ad stating that $10,000 is almost three times more than what an average family spends on groceries in a year and more than a year's worth of mortgage payments for the typical American home purchased today.
