Romney To Campaign In Mansfield, Biden Rallies Dems In Athens

Mitt Romney returns to Ohio today. The Republican presidential candidate plans to meet with workers at a factory in Mansfield this afternoon. Vice president Joe Biden made three weekend campaign stops in southeast Ohio. At an Athens rally, Biden said the president’s proposal knocks down the nation’s long-term debt by $4 trillion by investing in America. “Romney, Ryan, Republican Congress rejected every effort that every outside group and we offered them to cut the national debt if it contained one single dollar, one single penny in a new tax for millionaires," Biden said. Biden says Romney’s cuts to Medicare would mean fewer benefits for 30 million people and “massive cutsâ€? to Social Security are also in the Republican plan.
