The scoop on Romney's Massachusetts
Mitt Romney has said that if we want to know how he'd govern as president of the United States, we should just look at his record as governor as Massachusetts.
Well, we've got the scoop on Mitt Romney's record -- and we agree, it's something every voter should see.
Romney made a lot of promises when running for governor (a lot of the same ones we're hearing today). Once in office, he failed to deliver.
Watch this short video about what happened in Massachusetts under Romney's watch, then pass it along to folks you know:
Mitt Romney ran for governor promising to use his experience as a corporate buyout specialist to create jobs. Instead, Massachusetts ranked 47th out of 50 states in job creation during his four year term.
He promised to bring down the state's debt. It ballooned by more than $2.6 billion. Romney left Massachusetts taxpayers with more debt per person than any state in the nation.
And, despite promising not to raise taxes, he raised fees on the middle class and small businesses more than 1,000 times. By the end of his term, the tax burden in Massachusetts had increased $1,200 per person.
As Democrats, we need to get the truth about Romney's record out in front of voters, well before November, so they can compare his claims and the facts, side by side.
We need voters to understand that Romney Economics is the last thing our country needs -- it didn't work for Massachusetts then, and it won't work for America now.
We're counting on Democrats like you to get the word out.
So take a look at this short video introducing Romney's real history, read up on the record he's running on, and then share it far and wide:
