This is a crosspost from AFL-CIO Now by Jackie Tortora

Mitt Romney made a wad of cash—$255 million—by laying off American workers and shipping U.S. jobs overseas.

Now he wants to give millionaires and billionaires more tax cuts they don't need—tax cuts that didn’t create jobs the first time around—while hurting the rest of us.

Meet Mr. 1% is our new website with infographics and a video you can share on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

These infographics include:

1.    The Wrong Way to Get Rich: Romney’s record laying off workers at Bain Capital and filing for bankruptcy.
2.    Helping the 1%: Romney’s tax plan and how it will benefit the top 1% and corporations—not the middle class.
3.    Hurting the Rest of Us: Romney’s attack plan to cut social programs like Social Security and Medicaid, target teachers’ unions and create anti-worker legislation.
4.    His Record Speaks Louder than Words: Romney’s record as Massachusetts governor when the state had the highest debt per capita and ranked low (47th  of 50 states) on job creation.

If Romney’s values don’t match with yours, take action and pledge to vote this November.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
