MADISON (WKOW) -- In an effort to get their message across, the Democratic National Party's "Romney Economics -- The Middle Class Under the Bus Tour" rolled into Madison one day prior to the Republican presidential candidate's visit.
DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse, Wisconsin Firefighters Union President Mahlon Mitchell, along with a Massachusetts teacher and State Representative spoke with the Media Saturday about Romney's track record.
"He'll come here and he'll claim that his central qualification for president is that he's a business man, but it's really worth examining what that business experience is all about. It wasn't about growing companies and creating jobs for the long hall, in deal after deal, Romney and his partners first priority was to make a profit, regardless to the cost of workers," said Woodhouse.
As President of the Wisconsin Firefighters Union, Mahlon focused his attention on Romney's record regarding emergency responders. "As Governor, Romney cut funding for our coats, our pants, our boots, equipment that is essential to protect firefighters when we run into burning buildings," Mitchell said.
Romney has focused his attention on President Obama's record throughout his recent bus tour, which stops in six swing states. He accused Obama of not giving the middle class people of America a fair shot and continued to attack Obama's economic record.
"He is taking us down a path towards Europe. He wants us to see a bigger and bigger government, with a health care system run by the government," Romney said during a campaign stop in Ohio Sunday.
Romney will visit Monterey Mills in Janesville Monday morning. He will be joined by Governor Scott Walker and Congressman Paul Ryan.
