 My husbands friend is a carpenter and all of the union workers are voting for Obama.

Claiming Romney sent U.S. jobs to China.Romney opposed helping automakers which Obama helped saved the automakers.

That Romney lowers taxes on the millionaires no tax on investment gains.

Turning existing pension plans into risky private 401ks.

Cuts on training in trade fields.

And Romney invess public funds in risky unregulated private markets.

If Romney is for American workers than why is he shipping jobs are cutting funds for blue collar workers?

You quote from a union website? Ha ha. What an impartial source of news! The reason unions spread these lies, is that their power and influence is threatened by Republicans. Only Republicans want to give the American worker the right to say, in secret ballot elections, whether they individually choose or not to be represented by these particular unions or others, and whether they want to have union dues automatically deducted from their paychecks, or for unions to send them to financially support causes and candidates (usually Democrats) they do not agree with. You bet the unions feel threatened.

And re: blue collar jobs, were you not listening to the debates? Romney has pledged to create 12 million jobs, including manufacturing and other kinds of blue and white collar jobs that are typically represented by unions.

propaganda. Yeah Obama really helped the auto industry? Do you realize most car parts are made in you guessed it CHINA. How does that help the auto industry? As for coal workers we all know Obama cracked down on them. His spent trillions on clean air and those businesses are going under.

He does care about Blue Collar American Jobs. . A good businessman knows a company is only as good as its employees. Romney is a good businessman. You can't run a company without good workers, a fact many seem to overlook.
