As reported by Buzzfeed, at a campaign event at Hillsborough Community College’s Dale Mabry Campus in Tampa, Florida, President Obama riffed on a Washington Post article which revealed yesterday that while at Bain Capital, Romney… “pioneered” the outsourcing of jobs overseas:
“We’re going to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion. I have a detailed plan that will cut spending we can’t afford, strengthen programs like Medicare for the long haul, and reform our tax code in a way that’s fair and responsible. My plan will stop giving tax breaks to businesses that ship jobs and factories overseas, and start rewarding companies that create jobs and manufacturing right here in the United States of America. Now, not only does Governor Romney disagree with this plan, today it was reported in The Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were ‘pioneers’ in the outsourcing of American jobs to places like China and India. Pioneers! Tampa, we don’t need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a President who will fight for American jobs and American manufacturing. And that’s what my plan will do.”
On the same subject, Stephanie Cutter shares Romney’s economic plan of eliminating US taxes on foreign profits of US companies and his career of shipping American jobs all over the world.
