It turns out Mitt Romney’s tax plan actually would create jobs—overseas.
Independent economists say Romney’s plan to eliminate U.S. taxes on companies’ foreign incomes could create up to 800,000 jobs in foreign countries. It’s a good deal for American multinational corporations to be sure, but it would be devastating to American workers.
This news isn’t surprising when you consider Romney’s long and colorful history of creating jobs overseas instead of in America. As a corporate buyout specialist for two decades, he profited off investments in companies that the Washington Post called “pioneers” of the practice of shipping American jobs to countries like China and India. And as governor of Massachusetts, he outsourced state jobs to a call center in India and vetoed a bill that would have prohibited state jobs from going overseas.
