Romney For President - New TV Ad: "Failing American Workers"

Boston, MA – Today, Romney for President released a new television advertisement titled “Failing American Workers.” Since President Obama took office, our country has lost over half a million manufacturing jobs, while China has seen a 25 percent increase in manufacturing. President Obama could have stopped China, but each time he refused. It’s time for a president who will stand up to China and protect jobs for the American people.
