The other day I received the email below regarding Romney’s record
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The Washington Post reported this morning that “Mitt Romney’s financial company, Bain Capital, invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.”
This is the same guy that goes around the campaign trail talking a huge game about being able to protect American jobs by standing up to foreign countries like China. But now we know that Romney and his partners made millions while sending American jobs overseas.
Romney’s support of outsourcing didn’t just happen in the private sector. As governor of Massachusetts, he vetoed legislation that would have banned companies from shipping state jobs overseas — and he actually outsourced state jobs to a call center in India.
In contrast, President Obama has a jobs plan that could put up to a million people back to work — including teachers, cops, firefighters, construction workers, and veterans — help small businesses create jobs right now, and help to put an end to American jobs being shipped overseas. He’s also fighting for tax breaks for companies that bring jobs back to America.
Mitt Romney is fighting for tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas — the type of companies he ran in the private sector. This isn’t just a policy position for Romney, it’s his economic philosophy — and it’s his record.
Here’s the video:

And here’s the link to the Washington Post article.
Being an information technology small business consultant for over thirty years, I know the mindset of business is the “bottom line”. It’s what capitalism is all about. Rarely was there any improvement in business processes, product design, or employee benefits unless there was the potential of improved profitability. Romney has a good business mind. And that’s where he needs to stay. Business is all about profit. Government is all about service. Romney feels if business (the 1%) is doing OK, then everything is OK. You know, the “trickle down affect”.
I’m not going to ask if you’ve seen the Romney ad where Obama says “the private sector is fine” because it’s shown probably a 100 times a day. It states that Obama is out of touch. Really? The “private sector” President Obama was referring to is the stock market. And it is actually doing better than fine when you consider how the public sector, the citizens of this country are doing. That’s where President Obama’s focus is.
Romney will maintain the practices that the GOP established which will increase debt, squeeze the middle-class and ignore the poor. Remember Romney stating there’s no need to worry about the poor because they already have a “safety net”? A safety net he plans to cut away at.
Do you trust that Romney really knows how to create jobs? Do you trust what he says about how well he did as governor of Massachusetts when the facts contradict it? Who do you trust more, Romney or Obama?
Keep this in mind when you vote this Fall.
