Romney’s plan will create 800,000 jobs – overseas

Via: Yahoo

President Barack Obama blasted Mitt Romney’s economic plan during a stop in the pivotal swing state of Ohio on Monday, saying the blueprint would create 800,000 jobs—just not in America.

“Today, we found out, there’s a new study out by a nonpartisan economist that says Gov. Romney’s economic plan would in fact create 800,000 jobs,” Obama said at a town hall-style event in Cincinnati. “There’s only one problem. The jobs wouldn’t be in America.”

“They would not be in America. They’d be in other countries. By eliminating taxes on corporations’ foreign income, Gov. Romney’s plan would actually encourage companies to shift more of their operations to foreign tax havens, creating 800,000 jobs in those other countries,” the president added.

“This shouldn’t be a surprise because Gov. Romney’s experience has been investing in what were called pioneers of the business of outsourcing,” Obama said, reprising one of his core arguments against the Republican standard-bearer.

personsal thought:

1. The 800,000 jobs will NOT be limited to low paying ‘call-center’ and ‘sewing machine operators’ jobs, but good paying jobs as well.

I understand why you might not like President Obama because he’s a black man, or you believe he’s a Muslim. Well fine.

But the fact is, Romney will outsource American jobs, possibly even yours.

2. The Tea Party wants to end the deficit, well so do I.  But eliminating American jobs will make the problem worse, much worse.

So do the right thing, Re-Elect Obama/Biden!

“Quote of the Day”

“Now I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company Bain Capital with all the jobs that they killed, I’m sure he was worried that he’d run out of pink slips.

There is something inherently wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business and I happen to think that’s indefensible.

If you’re a victim of Bain Capital’s downsizing, it’s the ultimate insult for Mitt Romney to come to South Carolina and tell you he feels your pain, BECAUSE HE CAUSED IT.”

Romney Suggests Releasing Additional Tax Returns Could Be Politically Damaging

Via: Think Progress

Mitt Romney appeared on Fox & Friends Monday morning to respond to the growing number of conservatives who are calling on the former Massachusetts governor to release more of his tax returns.

At least EIGHT Republicans have urged Romney to publicize the records and put the issue behind him, but the candidate is sticking to his guns. The public will see just two years of returns and no more, Romney said, before appearing to admit that the records may contain something politically damaging:

ROMNEY: “The Obama people keep on wanting more and more and more. More things to pick through, more things for their opposition research to try make a mountain out of and to distort and to be dishonest about. We’re going to put out two years of tax returns.”

~

The fact is, there are a couple of years he may not have paid any taxes.”

“Maybe he’s concerned about that. But if it’s going to come out, he needs to get it out now so he has a couple of months to explain it.”

( a couple of months to explain paying ZERO TAXES; yeah, good luck with that)

personal thought:

What I believe what would really be tough to explain is the millions in the foreign bank accounts (Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Bermuda, >>>).

Q: Did Bain deposit the money in these accounts between 1999 and 2002 for ‘services rendered’?
