Truth for Today 3

The choice for middle-class and low-income families
Over the past four years, President Obama has been dedicated to strengthening the middle class, and making sure everyone who is willing to work has the opportunity to climb out of poverty and into the middle class. But Mitt Romney has a different plan — he’d return us to the same failed economic policies of the past that benefited a wealthy few, let down the middle class, and crashed the economy. Check out campaign policy director James Kvaal’s post about what each candidate’s economic plan would mean for middle-class and low-income families, and pass it along.

Romney’s China hypocrisy
Romney says he’ll be tough on China, but his record shows the opposite. Before he started claiming that he’d stand up to China and its unfair trade practices, he was profiting off of them. He maintained his investment in a Chinese manufacturing company that relied on outsourcing American jobs — even after seeing its poor working conditions, which he described as surrounded by barbed wire and packed with 12 women per dormitory room. When our competitors started a global race to the bottom, rather than placing a premium on creating American jobs and lifting the middle class, Romney dove in head first. Take a look at this new campaign ad that shows how he’s failed to stand up for American workers — then share it with your friends.

Romney’s manufacturing falsehoods
Romney is out with a new ad about manufacturing and trade with China. It lies about the President’s record — and it doesn’t tell the truth about Romney’s, either. It’s the sort of fact-free ad that we’ve come to expect from the Romney campaign, and we have to push back on every single one. I recorded a video to take on the ad’s distortions, and to talk about the President’s real record on manufacturing and China. Take a look, and share it with others.
