When Willard "Mittens" Romney promises to be the pro-layoffs president, you should take him at his word. He has a long history of laying off people while at Bain Capital of which he is very proud. "I like to be able to fire people."
The ad features Donnie Box, who lost his job of 32 years at Kansas City's GST Steel after Romney's firm took it over. "Romney and Bain Capital shut this place down," Box says in the commercial, standing outside a shuttered factory where he used to work. "They shut down entire livelihoods. They promised us healthcare package, they promised us maintain our retirement program, and those were the first two things to disappear. This was a booming place. And Mitt Romney and Bain Capital turned it into a junkyard. Just making money and leaving."
This new spot is part of a $7 million ad buy, and it will air in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
