Bush was responsible for a loss of 800,000 jobs per month in the presidential transition period. The effects of that Bush job-loss-hangover lasted over 1 1/2 yrs. Obama has created since March 2010 5-million new jobs, with 2.2-million created in the last year alone. Moody predicts 12-million additional new jobs under Obama in the next four years.
Romney was 47th of 50 states (lowest 3) in “job creation” and his State LEAD the nation in adult-age worker exodus–as there were effectively no jobs being created–less than 3/8 of 1% per year for 4 years. And, that dismal performance was in GOOD times.
Ask yourself, why didn’t the Republican agree to vote on the tax cut for
the middle class separately–let it take effect and help spur the
economy? The reason is that they wanted to hold the middle class tax
cut HOSTAGE–as well as the economic welfare of the nation–for a tax
cut for the RICH.
Unless you are one of those who hold disdain for the 47%, you are just being lulled into another Bush-type economic agenda with Romney.
Romney: As governor, taxes (state and local) rose from 9.6% to 10.2%–at 3 TIMES the national average. Romney’s sky high new “FEES” were actually taxes in disguise. Romney’s 20% FUNDING CUTS to communities
devastated them and they were forced to cut services and hike
fees–while laying off teachers, police officers, and other municipal
workers; plus they were forced to raise property taxes by 22%.
Romney’s Record: “Job Approval” as Governor
IN 2003: Approved: 56% Disapproved 23%
IN 2006: Approved: 39% Disapproved 59%
Romney devastated local communities in cutting funds to them by 20%; plus new & higher “Fees” = taxes-in-disguise.
No surprise that even his own State does not support him–they know too well his predator strategies (against working people) and his double-faced lies and bad math.
Romney wanted the auto industry to go bankrupt–with no private money available to bail it out. That’s his approach–based upon his Bain leveraged-buyout strategy: which was to load up companies with debt, extract huge fees (often $100m+), and let them go bankrupt. The workers’ jobs, pensions, medical benefits, and basic livelihood and retirement were thrown under the Bain-bus. He and Bain walked away with millions-their millions.
Those dollars were the hard earned wages of common, decent folks.
He’s not to be trusted.
Just listen again to his disdainful comments about the 47% who feel entitled.
Romney targeted job losses for teachers, police officers & other
municipal workers. As Governor, his 20% funding cuts resulted in
communities laying off these city-county workers; plus resulted in a
22% increase in property taxes. Don’t be fooled by Romney “bad math”
Romney has been disingenuous with Obama’s
He tries to put Bush’s responsibility for a loss
of up to 800,000 jobs per month during the presidential transition
period on Obama–when this 2 1/2 million-job-loss-degradation was
already in effect, due to Republican policies. The effect of that Bush
“job-loss-hangover” lasted over a year and a half. Don’t be fooled by
those who try to put Bush’s job-loss-hangover on Obama’s ledger.
Obama has created since March 2010 5-million new jobs, with 2.2-million
created in the last year alone. Moody predicts 12-million new jobs under
Obama in the next four years.
Romney was 47-of-50-states in “Job Creation”–the lowest 3 states in the
NATION. At the same time, The LARGEST exodus of working-age
adults/workers from any state was during Romney’s tenure as governor.
Clearly, he was not producing the jobs–esp at a rate of less than
3/8-of-1% job growth per year for four years.
And, Romney’s dismal record at job producing was during GOOD economic times.
Make’s one appreciate how well Obama has engineered a recovery during the most challenging of times SINCE the Great Depression. And, with the world economies in shambles.
