Mitt Romney: Wrong for Wisconsin in Every Way
By Adri Viswanatha
Mitt Romney’s recent visit to Janesville showcased once again his overconfidence and arrogance as he claimed he would “win the state.”
Here’s a reminder of exactly why Romney is wrong for Wisconsin in every way:
The promises Mitt Romney made as governor of Massachusetts were as false as the ones he’s making today on the campaign trail. Instead of delivering on his pledges of job creation, less debt and lower taxes, Romney reduced his state to one of the weakest in the nation with little job creation and enormous debt.
He hiked taxes and fees by $750 million per year while continuing to cut taxes for the wealthy and loosen the rules for Wall Street. As he benefited the rich, he ignored the middle class’s needs, instead removing their protections, and telling us the market will work itself out.
Romney bragged that he would win Wisconsin after visiting Janesville, but we know that’s not true, because we know exactly why Mitt Romney is wrong for Wisconsin.
The people of Wisconsin have seen their state torn apart by Gov. Scott Walker’s efforts to curb the rights of teachers, workers, women and countless others. They won’t elect a candidate as president who also supports cutting jobs for teachers and first responders to help pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.
Now is the time to look to President Obama to continue to lead us forward. By re-electing President Obama, we invest in quality teachers and education for our country’s students.
We invest in getting away from foreign energy consumption, instead advancing cheaper, cleaner sources of power.
By re-electing Barack Obama, we ensure the middle class and average worker keep their jobs and are not exploited, not only in Wisconsin, but the entire country.
And by re-electing President Obama, we invest in American innovation and infrastructure, ensuring that we remain a leader and example of progress in the world.
Wisconsin doesn’t want a president like Mitt Romney who will cut taxes for the wealthy while ignoring the needs of Wisconsin’s middle class families. They don’t need a president who endorses big business and exploits the middle class.
Exit polls after the recall election showed Wisconsin’s strong support for Barack Obama even now. It just goes to show, Wisconsin knows Mitt Romney won’t take our state, because we know he is wrong for us in every way.
