Romney Promised to Create 12 Million New Jobs and Claims Obama has no Jobs Plan What Romney Said, And unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. The Truth: This is a double whopper on Romneys part, and one that he is fond of repeating on the campaign trail. First, President Obama does have a plan to create jobs. Its called the American Jobs Act, and it was killed by congressional Republicans. The second part of Romneys lie was a bit more devious. Romney promised to create 12 million new jobs, because he and his campaign know that independent economic forecasts show that if nothing is done, the economy will create 11.8 millionjobs on its own. Mitt Romney is suggested that America should elect him because his leadership will be 200,000 jobs better than doing absolutely nothing. That is the kind of leadership that Mitt Romney is promising America. Knowing that Romney is a pathological liar, I would like to see him tell us specifically what his program is.
