That is what your employer told you? Or just other employees. It's been my experience that employees talk a lot, which means they get a lot of things wrong. If your employer said that, it would be another story. Perhaps it's only a rumor. If not, I would seek another job in a more stable company.

It takes more and more shouting to convince yourself these days because you haven't convinced anyone else.

On the campaign trail, Mitt Romney has been a man who has been highlighting his executive business experience at the investment firm, Bain Capital. Romney touts the success he has had investing in companies like Staples, but the other side of the coin shows massive jobs losses while Romney and others have been able to make a profit.

The newest reports about Mitt Romney's financial holdings point to Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors Ltd, which is a company based in Bermuda that has been previously missing from past financial disclosure reports. One account alone is reported to be worth nearly $2 million questioning whether Romney is worth more than the $250 million reported by his campaign.

The Associated Press reports that Sankaty was transferred to another trust owned by Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, just one day before Romney was sworn in as governor of Massachusetts in 2003. The offshore company was used prominently over 10 years ago when Romney's former company, Bain Capital, took over Dominos Pizza and other outlets for over $1 billion. The offshore company was kept relatively silent until Romney was forced to release his 2010 tax returns following political pressure.


“A Swiss bank account. A dozen funds in the Cayman Islands. And now, a Bermuda tax shelter he failed to report...How many of these revelations will it take for the media to demand a full accounting of Mitt’s tax returns and finances?”

According to a report by Vanity Fair, Mitt Romney is hiding at least $30 million in offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands in addition to millions of dollars in Swiss bank accounts and others.

I'm a lot less concerned about how much Romney has in offshore accounts to keep the government from wasting it, then I am about what Holder and Obama are hiding in the documents that Obama claimed "executive privilege" over. No one Americans citizens were shot and killed because Romney opened offshore accounts.

Show us something positive Obama has done. Obama is reluctant to show college records, birth certificates, etc and you begrudge Romney's reluctance to provide anymore than the law requires when it comes to Rex returns, is that not a little hypocritical?

In an editorial published online last night, the Journal slams Romney and his staff for their inability (or unwillingness?) to stick it to President Obama over the "penalty vs. tax" debate when it comes to the health care and the individual mandate. The paper says that by siding with the President and calling it a penalty, he gave the Obama campaign a "gift" that undermines Republican arguments and turns the unpopular Supreme Court decision into a "second defeat." Then by flipping his strategy and calling it a tax — as Romney did multiple times on Wednesday — "the campaign looks confused in addition to being politically dumb."

Wall Street Journal revealed that 75 percent of Obamacare’s new taxes will be paid for by American families making under $120,000 a year. Among the taxes that will hit the middle class are the individual mandate, a 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices, a 10 percent excise tax on indoor tanning, and an increase of the floor on medical deductions from 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income to 10 percent.

I guess you will give Obama a pass on this? If American voters had known this was Obama's idea of transparency in 2008 he would not have been elected. What will he promise this time around? All he has done so far is point out others faults and pit American against American with his class warfare. What he hasn't done is talk about his total failure of a record. I suspect he won't.

Given Obama's record, the threshold for voting for Romney is pretty low for this election.

None of this is illegal and none of this has cost the American public a dime of their own money. Give it a rest. Given Obama's record on jobs lost, I don't believe I would be spouting off about Romney's record. I would bet that Romney's overall jobs creation vs jobs lost number is in the black by a significant margin. Obama can't say that. Not even close.

If that's the best Obama's got, then he's in trouble considering Obama's staff couldn't even agree on how many jobs they've supposedly "saved or created."

Hell a 5yr old that has graduated kindergarten would make better decisions than Obama. I just pray its not him again. They say it can always be worse but I really don't see how as long as we get someone new in there.

Obama’s public-equity record is the real scandal
&#9679; Raser Technologies. In 2010, the Obama administration gave Raser a $33 million taxpayer-funded grant to build a power plant in Beaver Creek, Utah. After burning through our tax dollars, the company filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012. The plant now has fewer than 10 employees, and Raser owes $1.5 million in back taxes.
&#9679; ECOtality. The Obama administration gave ECOtality $126.2 million in taxpayer money in 2009 for, among other things, the installation of 14,000 electric car chargers in five states. Obama even hosted the company’s president, Don Karner, in the first lady’s box during the 2010 State of the Union address as an example> of a stimulus success story. According to ECOtality’s own SEC filings, the company has since incurred more than $45 million in losses and has told the federal government,“We may not achieve or sustain profitability on a quarterly or annual basis in the future.” CBS News: the company is “under investigation for insider trading,” and Karner has been subpoenaed “for any and all documentation surrounding the public announcement of the first Department of Energy grant to the company.”
&#9679; Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP). Obama gave NGP a $98.5 million taxpayer loan guarantee in 2010. The New York Times reported last October that the company is in “financial turmoil” and that “[a]fter a> series of technical missteps that are draining Nevada Geothermal’s cash reserves, its own auditor concluded in a filing released last week that there was ‘significant doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.’&#8201;”
&#9679; First Solar. Obama provided First Solar with more than $3 billion in loan guarantees for power plants in Arizona and California. According to a Bloomberg Businessweek report last week, the company “fell to a record low in Nasdaq Stock Market trading May 4 after reporting $401 million in restructuring costs tied to firing 30 percent of its workforce.”
&#9679; Abound Solar, Inc. Obama gave Abound Solar a $400 million> loan guarantee to build photovoltaic panel factories. According to Forbes, in February the company halted production and laid off 180 employees.
&#9679; Beacon Power. Obama gave Beacon — a green-energy storage company — a $43 million loan guarantee. According to CBS News, at the time of the loan,“Standard and Poor’s had confidentially given the project a dismal outlook of ‘CCC-plus.’” In the fall of 2011, Beacon received a delisting notice from Nasdaq and filed for bankruptcy.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. A company called SunPower got a $1.2 billion loan guarantee from the Obama administration, and as of January, the company owed more than it was worth. Brightsource got a $1.6 billion loan guarantee and posted a string of net losses totaling $177 million. And, of course, let’s not forget Solyndra — the solar panel manufacturer that received $535 million in taxpayer-funded loan guarantees and went bankrupt, leaving taxpayers on the hook.
Amazingly, Obama has declared that all the projects received funding “based solely on their merits.” But as Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer reported in his book,“Throw Them All Out,” fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to “individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.” Collectively, these Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion. Obama said this week it’s not the president’s job “to make a lot of money for investors.” Obama sure seems to have made a lot of (taxpayer) money for investors in his political machine. All that cronyism and corruption is catching up with him. According to Politico,“The Energy Department’s inspector general has launched more than 100 criminal investigations” related to the department’s green-energy programs.
