Tour Kicks Off in New Hampshire Tomorrow, Will Highlight Romney’s Failed Economic Record and
Exeter, New Hampshire—The DNC today announced a bus tour following the route Mitt Romney will travel over the coming days through New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan. The “Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus” tour will begin in Exeter, NH , Friday, June 15 at 8:50 AM EDT and visit all of the states on Romney’s bus tour through the weekend and into early next week.
The “Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus” tour will take the message of Mitt Romney’s real economic record to communities across those six states, highlighting the broken promises Romney made while running for governor of Massachusetts for more jobs, less debt, and smaller government – the same promises he is making today. Once in office, Romney failed to keep those promises: he sank Massachusetts to 47th out of 50 in job creation, hiked taxes and fees by $750 million a year, and left taxpayers with the highest debt per person in the country. The tour will feature representatives from Massachusetts who will speak from firsthand knowledge about what Romney
Economics meant for economic growth and the middle class.
While the President has outlined a clear plan to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down our debt in a balanced way, Mitt Romney has provided no real plan to help the middle class. Instead he has promised economic policies that are familiar and troubling: more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer rules for Wall Street, the same formula that benefited a few, but crashed our economy and devastated the middle class. Romney Economics didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.
The four-day DNC bus tour will make at least ten stops across the six states Romney is visiting. The DNC bus will also stop in: Scranton, PA on Friday afternoon; Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton, OH on Saturday; Madison, WI and Davenport, IA on Sunday; and Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit, MI on Monday. Massachusetts and local elected officials and other prominent surrogates will appear on the tour along with the DNC’s Brad Woodhouse.
Today, the Democratic National Committee’s “Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus” tour will make stops in Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit, in advance of Mitt Romney’s Michigan swing. Local officials and Massachusetts representatives will join DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse to discuss Romney’s real economic record and to highlight the broken promises he made while running for governor of Massachusetts for more jobs, less debt, and smaller government – the same promises he is making today.
On Tuesday, Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney’s Michigan swing of “Every Town Counts” commences with stops in Frankenmuth, Dewitt, and Holland. Holland is the final city featured, as a wrap-up event is planned in Holland Park. Voices of Michigan will be available to shed light on Mitt Romney’s unimpressive record as Massachusetts Governor, where he raised taxes and created no jobs.
