VIDEO: The Truth About Romney Economics: John from GST Steel
During the final night of a Republican convention when Mitt Romney will be extolling his record in the private sector, one group won’t be getting the microphone tonight: the workers who lost their jobs and were devastated by Romney’s singular focus on profit creation for himself and his partners while leading Bain Capital, no matter what the consequences were for the middle class.
To make sure their stories are told, Obama for America will be releasing videos throughout the evening featuring middle-class Americans whose lives took a turn for the worse as Romney and Bain shut down factories, fired thousands of workers, and invested in companies that were pioneers of outsourcing American jobs – while Romney and his investors made millions.
The first video features former GST Steel worker John Wisman, who says: “Bain Capital didn’t care one iota about this plant, about this group of employees. The only thing Bain Capital cared about was a quick buck – make as much money off that plant as they could. They left it a skeleton. Bain Capital left with a lot of money that they made off this plant….We view Mitt Romney as a job destroyer.
