United Auto Workers Rally Against Mitt Romney and His Lies About The Auto Industry

Source: New Hampshire Labor News

By Matt Murray

Today workers from multiple unions gathered around Sen Jeanne Shaheen, Sen John Kerry, and UAW President Bob King to talk about why we need re-elect Barack Obama. Many of the workers were United Auto Workers (UAW) whose jobs were saved by the ‘auto industry bailout’. That stimulus money helped more that “23,000 jobs here in the Granite State”. Sen Shaheen continued to say that the auto rescue has let to a “17% increase in car sales here in NH”. When people are buying new cars this means that workers are getting paid and that money continues to spread throughout our towns and communities. Second to speak is long time friend of NH, Sen John Kerry. He talked about portraying Mitt Romney in the debate practice with President Obama. Sen Kerry even jested that he became so good at being Mitt Romney that he even “closed a couple of factories, sent the jobs overseas, and then left the debate practices with his dog strapped to the roof of his car”. Sen Kerry continued by saying “Mitt Romney is not telling the truth“. The lie that is being spread around in states like Ohio is that Jeep is going to move it production facilities overseas. Sen Kerry stated “the head of the company (Jeep) has told him that he is not telling the truth”. Mitt Romney is continuing to lie his way into office. Making statements are false or misleading. He commonly refers to his record as Governor of Massachusetts. Sen Kerry tells the truth about a Romney Massachusetts. Currently Romney is loosing Massachusetts by 20 points. Sen Kerry asked “what does it tell you that the man who governed our state can’t win his own state?” Kerry continued, “the people who know him the best, trust him the least“. Here are some of Romney’s shining moments as Governor by Sen Kerry

He lost 45,000 manufacturing jobs

He left a 1 billion dollar deficit

Raised 700 million dollars in taxes and fees on the middle class while he gave 278 of the wealthiest families a “great big tax cut”

He cut education and turned his back on infrastructure investments

4. Solidarity

 

as a former UAW member, I highly applaud this.

the UAW and other unions have to stand up to the wealthy class; the job/factory destroyers like Mitt Romney.

8. GOP-group is using Delphi Retirees' pensions as a political issue

Salaried pensioners had their salaries reduced when turned over to the PBGC.
A group that is backing Romney supplies this agi-prop.
They never say that Sherrod Brown introduced a bill to set their pensions to right
