WASHINGTON -- Sensata Technologies is a healthy manufacturing company that employs nearly 200 workers at a factory in northern Illinois. The company has become the focus of national attention because it has been taken over by Bain Capital, which plans to shut the factory down, lay off the workers, and outsource the production to China before the end of the year.

The workers have pleaded with GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the founder of Bain Capital, to exert his considerable influence to save their jobs. Romney still makes millions each year in income from Bain. So far, he has declined to weigh in, and the factory is scheduled to close by the end of the year.

While the workers and the town may suffer, Romney himself has done well as a result of Bain's work with the company. According to his recently released 2011 tax returns, Romney transferred $701,703 worth of Sensata stock to the Tyler Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit controlled by Romney. The gift is listed on page 323 of the pdf, on form 8283 (below).

Moving the stock to his nonprofit brings Romney twin benefits. First, he gets to deduct the full value of the stock. At a 35 percent tax rate, that's nearly a $250,000 benefit. At 15 percent, it's just over $100,000.

Second, Romney is able to avoid paying capital gains taxes on the stock price increase. Romney's returns list no cost for the stock, and indicate he obtained them as part of a partnership interest in Bain. Avoiding capital gains taxes on the full increase would save an additional $100,000. In 2010, Romney gifted $170,000 worth of Sensata stock to his charity, saving $25,000 in capital gains taxes that year.

Cheryl Randecker, a Sensata worker facing an imminent layoff, said, "I could pay off my house with that [$25,000], and he doesn't need it anyway."

Randecker received her 60-day layoff notice shortly after Labor Day. She and other Sensata employees have tried in vain to pressure Romney and Bain to keep their jobs in the U.S., going so far as to create a "Bainport" encampment across the street from their plant in Freeport, Ill. Billed as the "home of the Romney economy," the site highlights what some Sensata workers describe as corporate greed squeezing the middle class.

Because this isn't a relevent story.

So since I own some stock in Walmart, does that mean that I have "considerable influence" over that company too? Fyi troll - Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to run the Olympics and has had absolutely no involvement with the management or investment of the company since. Take your BS liberal propaganda somewhere else...

From the article:

Looks like Romney is still reaping the benefits from Bain in 2011 and very much connected to them.

BTW, has this story appeared on Fox News yet?

From Fox's own attorneys they say they don't have to tell the truth.

"The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves.

In its six-page written decision, the Court of Appeals held that the Federal Communications Commission position against news distortion is only a “policy,” not a promulgated law, rule, or regulation. Fox aired a report after the ruling saying it was “totally vindicated” by the verdict."

Again - So what?

I own stock and invest in Walmart, am I responsible for every move that Walmart makes? Am I responsible for all the jobs destroyed by them? Should I not make profits off of my investment risks? More class warefare, anything to distract from Obammie's HORRENDOUS record, mousiepoo! Lol...

Yeah, you can google "Obama is a child molester" and see how many stories pop up to that too. Does that mean those stories are all true as well?

This is on Fox News though...

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/28/vi...

It's a headline story about the criticism of the free "Obama Phone," a low-income entitlement program.

However, they waited until the end of the story to mention that the program was created by President Ronald Reagan.

Yeah, but this thread is "You wont see things like this on Fox News". And Fox reported it! So what is your complaint here, that they didn't put the proper liberal slant on story for ya?

I would have preferred honesty, but Fox doesn't do that...

Instead, they call a Reagan-created welfare program the "Obamaphone," and proceed to use the word "Obama" 14 times in the story.

But, you know, whatever... Facts, schmacts.

Well, here's a few "schmacts" you neglected to mention yourself -

"Lifeline is an extension of a program that has existed since 1985."

"The site does, however, clarify that Obama did not start the program and that there's no such thing as an "Obama phone."

"It’s true that government provides free cellphones to the poor and disabled people," the site reads. "But the Obama part is not true as Obama didn’t initiate this program. It’s on the run [sic] since the administration of Reagan."

Sooo, "schmact" #1 - It was mentioned at least 3 times in the article that the ORIGINAL program wasn't started under Obama, and Regan was mention well above the mid portion of the article, not at the "end of the story" as you falsely claimed.
