    It seems that the GOP candidate Mitt Romney (who started Bain Capitol) has a small problem.

    Bain Capitol bought 51 percent of Sensata (a company in the U.S. that makes car sensors) and then decided (after they posted record profits this year) to sell the company to China. Not only did the workers have to train the Chinese workers flown in, but the U.S. Flag was taken down during their time at the factory for training, and oh yeah...........all of the equipment is being shipped RIGHT NOW to China, after the U.S. workers trained them how to operate it.

    Bain Capitol owns 51 percent of this company. Mitt RobMe owns 8 million dollars worth of shares in that company, and stands to benefit greatly if that company is sold to China (it was).

    Is this how tough Mittens is going to be on China? By outsourcing even more of our jobs there?

    Sensata employees in Freeport reach out to Mitt Romney for help in saving their jobs | The Rock River Times

    Oh yeah..............by the way................when Obama told China that they couldn't sell their tires by undercutting the ones sold in the U.S. and imposed tariffs? One of the factories saved was in the same city.

    Romney wants to send your jobs to other countries. Obama wants to keep them here.

    Are you really going to vote for a vulture capitalist?

    I'm just watching that, people losing their jobs as we speak due to Bain and Romney greed.

    Sad.

    I've been following this. The company was non union also. Romney has a lot of nerve calling himself an American parking his money off shore to evade taxes and selling out American workers. He is disgusting.

    And the really fucked up thing is that this quarter the company posted RECORD PROFITS.

    How can it be good for the country if we sell off the companies that are doing good?

    If this is what Mittens knows about saving jobs, then he doesn't need to be elected president.

    Many Americans are willfully ignorant. They are easily convinced that Romney's needs outweigh their own.

    When Romney was runing Bain, his responsibilty was to do what's best for Bain, not the country. It's a simple concept, I don't understand why the left doesn't get it.
