Romney at manufacturing plant in NE Pennsylvania
Mitt Romney stopped by Northeastern Pennsylvania to lay out his jobs plan:
“Somehow, what I’ve heard from people who actually create jobs is different from than what I heard from the guy who wants to hang onto his job,” Romney said, referring to Obama.
Romney referred to Weatherly Casting and Machine Co. President Mike Leib as an example of whom Obama should listen to in developing his economic policy.
Leib employs 74 at his Weatherly plant and 48 at an associated company in Hazleton. He recently began manufacturing metal components of pumps used in hydraulic fracturing by the Marcellus Shale natural gas industry.
“If you want to know who can really get this economy going in this country, go and talk to small businesses in your community; talk to people like Mike; talk with the men and women I spoke with this morning,” Romney said. “All kinds of businesses; go and see them, and say, oh, by the way, over the past three and a half years, have the president’s policies made it easier or made it harder for you to want to hire people? I know what they’re going to tell you.”
