[Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said "I like H-1B visas." He likes H-1B so much he said he wants an unlimited number of them to flood the U.S. labor market. Does that sound so outrageous that you just can`t believe Romney would said say such things? It gets worse, you can listen to it yourself by going to the Techcrunch page. They have a podcast as well as a streaming audio file so you can listen to Romney in person.[ Interview With Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney On Technology Issues,

Keep in mind that Romney not only wants to flood the U.S. with more H-1Bs, he wants more green cards too. Last month he said this to a group of foreign tech students:
"I`d rather staple a green card to your diploma and say that if you can get a Ph.D. from one of our great institutions, we`d love you to stay here."
I did a Google search to try to find some articles about this interview in the United States media. I couldn`t find a single one, but it`s all over the Indian press.
