Mitt Romney has said that if we want to know how he'd govern as president

of the United States, we should just look at his record as governor as

Massachusetts.

Well, we've got the scoop on Mitt Romney's record -- and we agree, it's

something every voter should see.

Romney made a lot of promises when running for governor a lot of the same

ones we're hearing today . Once in office, he failed to deliver.

Watch this short video about what happened in Massachusetts under Romney's

watch, then pass it along to folks you

know:

Economics

Mitt Romney ran for governor promising to use his experience as a corporate

buyout specialist to create jobs. Instead, Massachusetts ranked 47th out of

50 states in job creation during his four year term.

He promised to bring down the state's debt. It ballooned by more than $2.6

billion. Romney left Massachusetts taxpayers with more debt per person than

any state in the nation.

And, despite promising not to raise taxes, he raised fees on the middle

class and small businesses more than 1,000 times. By the end of his term,

the tax burden in Massachusetts had increased $1,200 per person.

As Democrats, we need to get the truth about Romney's record out in front

of voters, well before November, so they can compare his claims and the

facts, side by side.

We need voters to understand that Romney Economics is the last thing our

country needs -- it didn't work for Massachusetts then, and it won't work

for America now.

We're counting on Democrats like you to get the word out.

So take a look at this short video introducing Romney's real history, read

up on the record he's running on, and then share it far and wide:
