Obama in Akron: Romney Wants You to Pay More So He Gets Big Tax Break

President Barack Obama took the stage in downtown Akron around 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

President Barack Obama spent Wednesday afternoon in downtown Akron, making a campaign speech as part of another campaign swing through Ohio. He stopped in Mansfield before making his way downtown.

The doors at the John S. Knight Center opened at 1:30 p.m., reports the Akron Beacon Journal, and a long line of supporters lined up down High Street. The Beacon also reported that several supporters, even if they had a ticket, would have to stand.

The Plain Dealer reported Obama arrived earlier than expected and gave a speech that touched on tax cuts, education and help for the middle class.

The Plain Dealer also reported a Mitt Romney bus was circling the John S. Knight Center and a Romney campaign supporter was denied access to the event.

Obama "pushed back against the GOP attacks on a report that concluded Mitt Romney's tax proposal would cost middle class families $2,000 each," reported Politico.

"Romney, Obama declared, 'is asking you to pay more so that people like him can get a big tax cut,'" reported Newser.

The same Republican House that turned that surplus into a deficit in 2 short years, so what's your point?

Obama, just under 6 TRILLION in 3 1/2 years. Lots of dough for failure.

I will cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujrNBFlxGFM The President has a problem with lying to the American people. Repeating myself seems appropriate.
