In an interview with the National Review, political candidate Mitt Romney mentioned that the Bain Company in the Cayman Islands is a foreign investment in 138 sub-companies which allows those in the United States to invest in without paying taxes.
“The so-called offshore account in the Cayman Islands, for instance, is an account established by a U.S. firm to allow foreign investors to invest in U.S. enterprises and not be subject to taxes outside of their own jurisdiction,” Romney said. “So in many instances, the investments in something of that nature are brought back into the United States. The world of finance is not as simple as some would have you believe. Sometimes a foreign entity is formed to allow foreign investors to invest in the United States, which may well be the case with the entities that Democrats are describing as foreign accounts.”
Romney joked with Florida voters that he was unemployed. His unemployment has netted him over $25 million. A far cry more than most of us that are unemployed and are drawing from unemployment benefits. For others on unemployment some have had to justify our current employment benefits with state work force offices due to overpayments. Colorado came into the news recently by saying they have a 17.5 percent improper payment rate or about $128 million and expect that to increase another 10 percent. Leaving the unemployed searching for W-2 records to justify their unemployment checks with benefits offices around the U.S.
In the recent news we have come to learn that with the increase of offshore tax-free funds the American jobs will also go in the same direction. The Bain Capital fund also allowed Romney to retire in 1999.
