|Mitt Romney has been repeatedly attacked for his record at Bain Capital by super PACs supporting President Barack Obama and the Obama administration. He's said to have invested in companies that were pioneers in outsourcing U.S. jobs to low-wage countries.

The main purpose of a firm such as Bain Capital in a free market capitalist system is to maximize profits, not to maximize revenues, sales or employment.|
