Mitt Romney on Taxes: It Didn’t Work Then, It Won’t Work Now

Mitt Romney in 2002: “I’m going to reduce taxes.”

As Governor, Mitt Romney did cut taxes…on millionaires like himself. But he raised taxes and fees on everyone else: $1.5 billion.

Over a thousand fee hikes: On health care. On school bus rides. On milk. On driver’s licenses. On nursing homes. On lead poisoning prevention. On meat and poultry inspection. On fishermen and gun owners. On nurses. On electricians. On hospitals. On funeral homes. On mental health services. On hospice care. On elevator repair.

Romney Economics didn’t work then. And won’t work now.

Romney Economics: Outsourcing Jobs

Running for Governor, Mitt Romney campaigned as a job creator. “I know how jobs are created.”

But as a corporate raider he shipped jobs to China and Mexico. As Governor, he did the same thing. Outsourcing state jobs to India. Now, he’s making the exact same pitch. “I know why jobs come and why they go.”

Outsourcing jobs. Romney economics: It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.

“Romney is Wrong on What Drives a Recovery”

Writing in The Detroit News yesterday, former Clinton administration official J. Bradford DeLong set the record straight about Mitt Romney’s plan for the economy. He stressed that President Obama is the only candidate with an effective plan to keep the recovery going:

“Our economy faces two urgent needs: jump-starting growth and job creation now, and boosting the U.S. economy’s potential to generate growth, jobs, and rising living standards in the years to come.

“But the economic proposals advanced by former Gov. Mitt Romney would do nothing to advance the recovery. They could actually slow its pace.”

Teachers, Firefighters, and Police Matter

Last week on the campaign trail, Mitt Romney introduced a plan to cut back on teachers, firefighters, and police officers and mocked President Obama for trying to put public workers back on the job.

Now, teachers, firefighters, and police officers are speaking out and standing up to Romney. So are those who have benefited from the care of a good teacher, who were moved by the courage of a firefighter risking his life to save theirs, and who value the unique sense of security that police offer their communities.

Watch and share this video of a teacher, a firefighter, and a police officer as they each call out Romney for proposing “fewer of me.” Then read the stories that Americans from all walks of life have submitted to Romney—powerful tales of why teachers, firefighters, and police matter.

Romney Economics: First in Debt, 47th in Jobs Creation

When Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts was number one. Number one in state debt: $18 billion dollars in debt, more debt per person than any other state in the country.

At the same time Massachusetts fell to 47th in job creation; one of the worst economic records in the country. First in debt, 47th in job creation. That’s Romney Economics. It didn’t work then. It won’t work now.
