Mitt Romney ran for governor of Massachusetts promising more jobs, less debt, and smaller government. Here’s what Massachusetts got instead:<quoted text>
You know we shouldn't be fighting all the time. There are less than 5 months until election day when the people will decide who will be the next President of the United States. The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Democrats or the Republicans.
It’s time that we all need to come together, Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike.
So in a bi-partisan effort for America:
If you will be supporting Mitt Romney, please drive with your headlights ON during the day.
If you support Barack Obama, please drive with your headlights OFF at night.
Together, we can make it happen.
*Jobs: 47th out of 50 states in job creation
As the nation’s economy grew and the median income rose, under Romney, Massachusetts plummeted from 36th to 47th out of 50 states in job creation, and the median income declined.
*Taxes and fees: Increased by $750 million per year
As governor, Romney increased taxes and fees by as much as $750 million per year.
*Long-term debt: Increased more than $2.6 billion
Governor Romney left behind a $1 billion budget deficit for the next governor and saddled Massachusetts taxpayers with more debt per person than any other state.
*Outsourcing: State jobs outsourced overseas
as CEO, Mitt Romney advised companies that were “pioneers” in outsourcing jobs overseas. As governor, Romney drew from the same playbook and outsourced state jobs. And today, Romney has proposed eliminating all taxes on companies’ foreign profits—which would actually encourage companies to send jobs overseas.
*Manufacturing: Jobs declined at twice the national rate
Under Romney’s leadership, Massachusetts manufacturing declined by double the national rate, and was the third-worst overall in the country.
Romney Economics didn't work then, and won't work now.
I'd like to see if any conservatives wanna comment on this?
