What Mitt Romney did at Bain

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Forget taxes, gun rights and gay marriage. The new hot-button campaign issue is private equity.

Long a favorite line of attack for Democrats looking to paint Mitt Romney as an out-of-touch financier, Republicans are now criticizing the former Massachusetts governor's tenure at Bain Capital.

    Firing American workers and sending their jobs overseas is NOT very American but I am sure this millionaire and his buddies made a lot of money. He is not alone though. Companies would have rather have cheap labor and have you try to talk to people you can't understand than create jobs here in the US!!

    It would appear that some of the companies that Bain invested in, and which later went bankrupt or closed, were actually highly profitable investments. Just this morning, Newt Gingrich cited one example of where a $30 million investment returned $180 million for the Bain, but the company itself had went bankrupt and closed.
