Sensata: The Reason Romney's Wrong for America


To Romney, and the creature he created – Bain Capital – it’s all about profit. Workers be damned.

Romney has rebuffed entreaties for help from Sensata workers who delivered a petition with 35,000 signatures to a Romney campaign office, workers who went to the Republican convention in Tampa, and workers who sought him out in Iowa during the Republican primary, as well as from Freeport City Council and the governor of Illinois.

Yet this guy wants America to believe he’ll create jobs. He said in the second debate:

“I know what it takes to create good jobs again. I know what it takes to make sure that you have the kind of opportunity you deserve. And kids across this country are going to recognize, we're bringing back an economy.”

The Sensata workers have experienced Romney’s economy and they’re advising against it. In a rally at Sensata headquarters last week, workers chanted:

"We are from Freeport; we are united; we don't want a Romney economy."

Romney brags about being a businessman. That’s what he is, all right, a used car salesman peddling America an economic lemon. The country can't afford four years under a president who claims he'll create 12 million jobs but won't lift a finger to save 170 in Freeport.
