Quick, which Presidential candidate had a rich daddy pay for his Harvard education?
Which candidate broke companies apart, created layoffs for his fellow Americans and became rich in the process ?
Romney’s campaign slogan “Putting Jobs First” is a joke of epic proportions. Romney isn’t someone who knows about putting jobs first. He is a business man and a very successful one. For that he deserves credit. However; you CAN’T run the government like you run a business.
Business people care about profits and that runs contrary to creating jobs. Businesses don’t create jobs for the sake of creating them. They create jobs when there is a need.
What creates need? Demand. Demand for your products or services creates the environment that causes companies to higher.
Profits DO NOT create jobs. Take a good hard look at the profit and lost sheets of nearly every major company in the country. You will find that most of them – the majority of them – are making higher profits now then before the 2008 crash.
Then, take a look at their hiring. See any job creation? Not a lot.
Think tax cuts are the answer? Think again. Taxes on the upper one percent and corporations are lower now than they were in the 1950s. And, still, very few jobs.
Is our economy improving?
Yes it is, but if we make cuts in government spending now – like Romney supports – and we further cut the taxes on the rich – like Romney wants – we’re repeating 1937. And, we all know what happened in 1937.
Romney is the wrong man at the wrong time. We don’t need a business man who only knows profits. We don’t need a man who spent his professional career laying people off. We don’t need a man who asks his country what can you do for me and then hides his money in the Cayman Islands. We don’t need a man who believes that “Corporations are people, my friend.”
We need a man who has had student loan debt. A man who knows our communities. A man who understands that the road to success is paved with hard work and dedication.
We need President Obama for another four years.
