Mitt Romney's job creation record: supporting companies with radical social policies
By Amy Contrada

Summary: As Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney exposed his big government, social liberal approach when he created a new preschool education department, paving the way for taxpayer funding and government control of day care. For the new department's advisory board, Romney chose a corporate leader who embraced enhanced pro-homosexual, pro-transgender policies in her child care corporation, Bright Horizons Family Solutions. Romney's firm Bain Capital had funded that company as a start-up, later buying it for $1.3 billion.

Romney has always supported non-discrimination policies on the basis of "sexual orientation" in employment and public accommodations, and in the corporations he and/or Bain had a stake in. Romney's adherence to sexual-radical policies effectively undermines the traditional family values he claims to stand for.


Mitt Romney brags about his record creating jobs as a businessman with Bain Consulting and Bain Capital. His image as a squeaky-clean manager and net creator of jobs has, however, been challenged.

What sort of corporate culture were Romney and Bain supporting (in their client companies that did survive)? Did Romney apply conservative values to businesses that received his support (whether corporate or personal)? Or was he fine with promoting companies that furthered enhanced sexual-radical policies? (Those would include, for example, domestic partner benefits, mandatory diversity training, implicit company speech codes, transgender non-discrimination in hiring, transgender "health" benefits, etc.)
