Working families are welcoming Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at his campaign stop in Stratham tomorrow with a few pointed questions about his campaign's claims that taxpayers want him to lay off more teachers, firefighters and police officers.
New Hampshire workers – who are, let's face it, taxpayers too – will show their suport for the public employees that Romney would love to fire and ask him a few simple questions:
1) What ideas does Romney have for fighting crime with fewer police officers?
2) Are classrooms of 40 middle school students acceptable?
3) Who will terrified homeowners call when their houses catch on fire?
It isn’t just public workers who should be worried about Romney’s taste for firing people. A new ad up on the New Hampshire airwaves reveals Bain’s little known role in triggering layoffs in the Holson Burnes’ plant in Claremont, NH.
Bain doubled its 10 million dollar investment into the clock and photo supply company. But workers in NH lost their jobs as the company consolidated its operations overseas.
Overall, about 100 jobs were lost at Holson Burnes Claremont plant, according to the Associated Press.
Romney may try to peg Obama as out-of-touch with the American people tomorrow in Stratham. But if these recent revelations about Romney are right, then working Granite Staters should worry about Romney’s concern for them – regardless of whether they work in the private or public sector.
