insourcing

  1. The latest from the Obama campaign this week is a 30-second spot calling Romney’s former company, Bain Capital, a pioneer in outsourcing jobs.

    The contrast piece highlights Romney’s tax cuts for companies who ship jobs over seas, while playing up on Obama’s desire to keep jobs at home and give tax cuts to businesses who do the same. It also mentions Obama’s fight to save the automotive industry.

    The ad will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
