You Have A Governor That Is Desperate For Votes.....

LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos outsourced jobs to China.
• Not true. Not one Michigan job was sent to China. Period.

LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos laid off 1,400 workers.
Not true. Four hundred workers took an early retirement. Four hundred
positions came from buyouts and attrition. Six hundred jobs were
eliminated.


LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos invested $200 million in China.
Not true. As President of Amway, Dick invested $100 million in China.

LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos had a controlling interest in Alterra.
Not true. Dick DeVos never had a controlling interest. He owned less than 1
percent – 0.06 percent to be precise. He never exercised his stock options;
never set foot in a facility and never attended a board meeting.


LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos and his family invested $173 million.
Not true. The DeVos family invested only 30 percent of the $173 million.

LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos knew of the alleged abuse and did
nothing.
Not true. Dick DeVos never set foot in a facility and never attended a board
meeting. He had no knowledge of the allegations.


LIE: Governor Jennifer Granholm says Dick DeVos lobbied for $19 million in tax breaks in a
late night deal.
Not true. See the attached release from Amway. In fact, Senator Levin and
President Clinton supported this as sound policy for Michigan companies.

Since Bush took office, the US has lost 3 million manufacturing jobs.
At the beginning of this month, the Wall Street Journal reported that for the first time in 90 years, the US is now paying more to foreign creditors than it receives from its investments ...these CEO fat cats get richer by replacing American workers with foreigners on work visas and locating production abroad(Amway).

not true...5.7 illion jobs have been created under Bush unlike your pitiful governor who have lost 109,000 jobs since she has been in office.

if you are not involved in globalization then why have a business?

Afrknsci said...

these 5.7million jobs you claim that have been created are classified under what job category???please be specfic...


The govenor is to be held accountable for the economy(her turf) its her fault for hesitating,and pump faking,instead of taking it to the hole...

So you agree with skirting a few laws to make a greater profit? Or exploiting people to solidify your bottom line...as many companys do not just amway, companys like starbucks,eddie bauer,gap,nike,etc.??
