A new anti-Romney PAC ad features a man who worked at a paper plant in Marion, Indiana recalls the day all three shifts at the profitable manufacturer were ordered to stop what they were doing, and build a 30-foot stage inside the warehouse. Later, a group of men in suits walked up onto the stage to tell them that their plant was closed, and that they were all fired.

The "suits" were Mitt Romney's Bain Capital.

Romney made over $100 million by shutting down the plant. A small community was devastated.

"Turns out that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin, and it just made me sick."

Can you help us out?
