Swiss Bank Account
"There are only 2 reasons to have a Swiss bank account: hedging against the dollar or avoiding paying fair share in taxes," tweeted Obama Press Secretary Ben LaBolt.
Obama's new ad is designed to show that Romney is out of touch with ordinary citizens and that his own past actions have been counter to decisions that would be chosen that have America's best interests at heart - which as has been pointed out before, is at the heart of being a "successful businessman".
"As a corporate CEO, [Romney] shipped American jobs to places like Mexico and China," the script goes. "As Governor, he outsourced state jobs to a call center in India. He's still pushing tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. It's just what you expect from a guy who had a Swiss Bank Account."
Is it a fair point that what works best for a businessman is not necessarily what works best for a nation? That you can't just cut the unprofitable parts and keep the rest when it comes to people, the environment and infrastructure decisions like roads and basic education needs. And of course healthcare.
