From a Priorities USA press release:
WASHINGTON, D.C—Priorities USA Action today released a new ad to illustrate Mitt Romney’s record in business, where he and his partners made millions, even when companies they took control of were driven into bankruptcy, employees saw their jobs shipped overseas, and promises for health and retirement benefits were broken.
The ad is the fourth in a series of a $10 million campaign running on television and online in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The first three ads, “Heads or Tails”, “Loris”, and “Donnie” have been airing since early May.
“Stage” features Mike Earnest, a former employee at AMPAD in Marion, Indiana, who was tasked with building a 30-foot stage, on which it was announced that and his colleagues had lost their jobs. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs and promised health and retirement benefits while Mitt Romney and his firm walked away with over $100 million in profit.
“Mitt Romney has made his experience in business his number one qualification to be President of the United States,” said Paul Begala, senior advisor for Priorities USA Action. “Romney will apply the same approach to the Presidency as he did as a corporate buyout specialist, pursuing policies that benefit the wealthiest Americans like himself while cutting promised Medicare benefits and slashing educational and job opportunities for the middle class.”
