Nuevo anuncio de Radio de Romney indica que esta perdiendo en Ohio

“Mitt Romney está perdiendo Ohio y lo sabe. No hay otra excusa por la cual lanzaría un anuncio de radio que es aún peor que el anuncio de televisión lleno de mentiras que el Cleveland Plain Dealer criticó severamente como un “obra maestra para distraer”. Estos son los hechos: Mitt Romney le dio la espalda a la industria automotriz y a sus trabajadores cuando estaban a punto de ir a la quiebra; encabezó inversiones en empresas ‘pioneras’ en la exportación de empleos estadounidenses a países de bajos salarios como China; y propuso un plan de impuestos que podría generar 800,000 empleos en el exterior, incluyendo en China. Los residentes de Ohio conocen la verdad –uno de cada ocho empleos en el estado está ligado a la industria automotriz—y no se dejarán engañar por sus tácticas desesperadas. Siempre hemos sabido que Mitt Romney diría cualquier cosa para ganar esta elección pero porque ahora la ve escapándose en la última semana, el pueblo estadounidense simplemente no puede confiar en su palabra.”—Gabriela Domenzain, portavoz de la campaña

 

UNO DE CADA OCHO TRABAJOS EN OHIO ESTÁN LIGADOS A LA INDUSTRIA AUTOMOTRIZ

 

Center For Automotive Research: The Auto Industry Helps Support Over 848,000 Jobs In Ohio – One Out Of Every Eight Working Ohioans. According to a report by the Center for Automotive Research, the auto industry helps support 848,304 jobs in Ohio – a full 12.4% of the state’s workforce.  [Center For Automotive Research Industry Contribution Report, 4/21/10]

 

EL ANUNCIO DE ROMNEY QUE AFIRMÓ QUE CHRYSLER IBA A CONSTRUIR JEEPS EN CHINA A EXPENSAS DE TRABAJOS ESTADOUNIDENSES  SE MERECE UNA CALIFICACIÓN DE “CUATRO PINOCHOS”  

 

PolitiFact: Romney’s Ad Claiming President Obama “Sold Chrysler To Italians Who Are Going To Build Jeeps In China” At The Cost Of American Jobs Is “Pants On Fire!” False. “The Romney campaign ad says Obama ‘sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China’ at the cost of American jobs. The ad leaves the clear impression that Jeeps built in China come at the expense of American workers. The ad miscasts the government’s role in Fiat’s acquisition of Chrysler, and it misrepresents the outcome. Chrysler’s owners had been trying to sell to Italy-based Fiat before Obama took office. The ad ignores the return of American jobs to Chrysler Jeep plants in the United States, and it presents the manufacture of Jeeps in China as a threat, rather than an opportunity to sell cars made in China to Chinese consumers. It strings together facts in a way that presents an wholly inaccurate picture. We rate the statement Pants on Fire!” [PolitiFact, 10/29/12]

 

Washington Post Fact Checker Headline: “4 Pinocchios For Mitt Romney’s Misleading Ad On Chrysler And China” [Fact Checker, Washington Post, 10/30/12]

 

Washington Post Fact Checker: Romney’s Auto Ad “Shows That We Have Entered The Final, Desperate Week Of The Campaign” – “Four Pinocchios.”  Fact Checker on Romney’s auto ad: “This ad shows that we have entered the final, desperate week of the campaign. The series of statements in the ad individually may be technically correct, but the overall message of the ad is clearly misleading — especially since it appears to have been designed to piggyback off of Romney’s gross misstatement that Chrysler was moving Ohio factory jobs to China. It is also especially strange that the ad touts Romney’s endorsement by the Detroit News, when the editorial actually backs up Obama’s criticism of Romney’s response to the auto industry crisis. Four Pinocchios.” [Fact Checker, Washington Post, 10/30/12]

CHRYSLER NO TIENE INTENCIÓN DE MUDAR LA PRODUCCIÓN DE SUS MODELOS JEEP FUERA DE NORTEAMÉRICA A CHINA Y LA EMPRESA HA DICHO QUE UN CONOCIMIENTO “CUIDADOSO Y IMPARCIAL” “HUBIESE EVITADO FANTASÍAS INNECESARIAS Y COMENTARIOS EXTRAVAGANTES”
Chrysler Spokesman: Reports That “That Chrysler Plans To Shift All Jeep Production To China From North America” Would Require “A Leap That Would Be Difficult Even For Professional Circus Acrobats.”  “There are times when the reading of a newswire report generates storms originated by a biased or predisposed approach. On Oct. 22, 2012, at 11:10 a.m. ET, the Bloomberg News report “Fiat Says Jeep® Output May Return to China as Demand Rises’ stated ‘Chrysler currently builds all Jeep SUV models at plants in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. Manley (President and CEO of the Jeep brand) referred to adding Jeep production sites rather than shifting output from North America to China.” Despite clear and accurate reporting, the take has given birth to a number of stories making readers believe that Chrysler plans to shift all Jeep production to China from North America, and therefore idle assembly lines and U.S. workforce. It is a leap that would be difficult even for professional circus acrobats.” [Chrysler Blog Post,10/25/12]

ROMNEY LE DIO LA ESPALDA A LA INDUSTRIA AUTOMOTRIZ Y DIJO EN REPETIDAS OCASIONES “DEJA QUE DETROIT QUEDE EN BANCARROTA”

ROMNEY OP-ED HEADLINE: “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” [Romney Op-Ed, New York Times, 11/19/08]

 

Romney Said Of The Auto Bailout: “That’s Exactly What I Said. The Headline You Read Which Said ‘Let Detroit Go Bankrupt’ Points Out That Those Companies Needed To Go Through Bankruptcy.” [Early Show, CBS News, 6/3/11]

 

Romney: President Obama “Said That I Said We Should Take Detroit Bankrupt, And — And That’s Right.” Romney: “And one thing that the — the president said which I want to make sure that we understand — he — he said that I said we should take Detroit bankrupt, and — and that’s right. My plan was to have the company go through bankruptcy like 7-Eleven did and Macy’s and — and — and Continental Airlines and come out stronger.” [Presidential Debate, Hempstead NY, 10/16/12]

 

Detroit News Editorial: Romney “Was Wrong In Suggesting The Automakers Could Have Found Operating Capital In The Private Markets.” “The president stepped up with the support the two automakers needed to keep themselves and their suppliers in business. We have said in past editorials that while Romney rightly advocated for structured bankruptcies in his infamous ‘Let Detroit Go Bankrupt’ New York Times op-ed, he was wrong in suggesting the automakers could have found operating capital in the private markets. In that article, Romney suggested government-backed loans to keep the companies afloat post bankruptcy. But what GM and Chrysler needed were bridge loans to get them through the process, and the private credit markets were unwilling to provide them. Obama put a rescue team to work and they were true to the task.” [Editorial, Detroit News, 10/25/12]

 

Associated Press Fact Check: Romney’s Approach To Saving The Auto Industry Was “An Improbable Course… Without Hefty Government Aid, The Assets Of Both Companies Probably Would Have Been Sold In Liquidation Auctions.” “It’s true that Romney didn’t preach liquidation of GM and Chrysler and that he saw his approach as a way to save the auto companies. But his was an improbable course. Opposing a government bailout, Romney instead favored private loans to finance the automakers’ restructuring in bankruptcy court. His proposed government loan guarantees would only have come after the companies went through bankruptcy. At the time, however, both automakers were nearly out of cash and were bad credit risks. The banking system was in crisis and private money wasn’t available. So without hefty government aid, the assets of both companies probably would have been sold in liquidation auctions.” [Associated Press, 10/23/12]

 

Washington Post Fact Check: “Many Independent Analysts Have Concluded That Taking The Approach Recommended By Romney” For Rescuing American Automakers “Would Not Have Worked In 2008.” “Ultimately, along with getting nearly $80 billion in loans and other assistance from the Bush and Obama administrations, GM and Chrysler did go through a managed bankruptcy. But many independent analysts have concluded that taking the approach recommended by Romney would not have worked in 2008, simply because the credit markets were so frozen that a bankruptcy was not a viable option at the time.” [Washington Post, 10/23/12]

Economist Kim Clausing: Under A Territorial Tax System “The Tax Incentive To Locate Jobs In Low-Tax Countries Would Increase Significantly” Which “Would Increase Employment In Low-Tax Countries By About 800,000 Jobs.” “What would the effects be if the United States shifted to a pure territorial system? … it would encourage job creation abroad instead of at home. Based on my research and that of other experts in international taxation, it is possible to estimate how many jobs are at stake in this debate. In 2008 U.S. multinational firms employed 10 million workers in affiliated firms abroad. Under a pure territorial tax system, the tax incentive to locate jobs in low-tax countries would increase significantly, which I calculate would increase employment in low-tax countries by about 800,000 jobs.” [Kimberly A. Clausing, A Challenging Time for International Tax Policy, Tax Notes, 7/16/12]

 

  • ·         Economist Kim Clausing: Under A Territorial Tax System, The 800,000 Jobs Created Overseas “Could Displace Jobs At Home.” “Under a pure territorial tax system, the tax incentive to locate jobs in low-tax countries would increase significantly, which I calculate would increase employment in low-tax countries by about 800,000 jobs… If U.S. unemployment rates are low, jobs abroad need not displace jobs at home, although the composition of jobs may change (and multinational corporate jobs are often good, high-wage jobs). In this economy, however, those new, low-tax-country jobs could displace jobs at home. With high unemployment rates, why further tilt the playing field in favor of jobs in low-tax countries? And given today’s budget climate, avoiding further erosion of the corporate tax base should be a priority.” [Kimberly A. Clausing, A Challenging Time for International Tax Policy, Tax Notes, 7/16/12]
