    In his speech Romney essentially called upon workers, already reeling from high unemployment and losses of net worth approaching 40 percent, to make more sacrifices by accepting cuts in Medicare benefits, and Pell Grants and by accepting fewer firefighters, cops and teachers in their communities. In the same speech he advocated more tax breaks for millionaires like himself and for corporations already hated for shipping U.S. jobs overseas.

    "It is clear that Mitt Romney has entered and remains in a fact free zone and has put forward a package based on lies, distortion and deception," declared Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee.

    "How can he ask Americans who have lost so much of their wealth to sacrifice more while in the same breath call for more tax breaks for the few who are doing fine already in this economy?," Van Hollen demanded to know. "For him to say President Obama doesn't have a clue when it is the President, over Republican opposition, who put through a $700 billion stimulus program and rescued the auto industry, creating or saving millions of jobs, is beyond me. In addition, although it's far from enough, we've had 27 months of private sector job growth. Under the last president, whose policies Romney is advocating that we return to, we were losing almost 800,000 jobs a month."

    But they aren't doing that because the problem is not regulation, the problem is that the demand isn't there because the American people can't afford to buy what they would produce."

    "Oct 11,– 2011, U.S. corporations have record domestic cash assets of around $2 trillion,"

    Obviously that's not enough. So Obama must be bad for business.
