But try telling that to this guy, who worked at a company that Bain Capital acquired. “When Mitt Romney came in with Bain Capital and took it over and eventually shut it down, we lost our jobs – they made millions.”
In his platform statement, Romney says he’ll pass five new orders on his very first day to address the subject of employment, including institution of an open trade agreement and removal of environmental protection regulations.
He also promises a reduction in corporate taxes, which he claims will result in new jobs. Apparently, the extra money they’ll have will be used to pay the salaries of new employees, Romney swears.
But if that was the case, then why haven’t the major financial institutions, which paid little if any taxes to begin with in recent years, created new jobs?
If having the extra in money via reduced taxes is supposed to create jobs, then why are these banks – these six individual banks, which gave their executives $143 billion (yes, BILLION) in bonuses, and many of which paid no federal taxes in consecutive recent years – still laying off hundreds of thousands of workers?
Sorry, Mitt. Your campaign statements are false, and your campaign promises are foolish.
Just like the guy in the video says: “Mitt Romney doesn’t care about jobs. He cares about money.”
