Tampa - A discarded copy of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's acceptance speech from Tampa shows that he would pursue the creation of a new One Million Dollar Bill if elected President.

A copy of the speech, found in a dumpster outside the Tampa convention center by a homeless person, referenced the new bill as "walking around money," although that line was crossed through in red ink and ultimately was not delivered in his acceptance speech.

A spokesman for the republican candidate said the line was in the original speech but admitted it was deleted at the last minute as it might be seen as uncaring by some.

"A million dollars is only good if you know how to use it," said the spokesman, "and lets face it, even if some poor slump were to find a lost wallet with a couple of million dollar bills in it, I mean, what good would it be to them. It's not like you can get change for it at a Seven Eleven or Burger King."

The spokesman added that the main purpose of the new bill would be to move money around quietly. "Look," he said, "it just a measly million dollars, no big deal."
