President Barack Obama made a couple of campaign stops in the pivotal state of Ohio Wednesday taking aim at Republican Mitt Romney's tax plan.
The President's first stop was in Mansfield, where the streets were lined to see the President.
He then spoke to an estimated 21-hundred supporters at a grassroots event in the heart of the city.
He told the crowd that Romney's 5 trillion dollar tax cut plan would help millionaires get a 250-thousand dollar tax cut and the middle class would pay for it.
The President cited a new report out Wednesday from the 'Tax Policy Center'.
A Romney spokesman said their candidate believes lower tax rates would jump-start the economy.
And it should be noted, the report the President referred to from the Tax Policy Center, a self-proclaimed non-partisan group, does have a former Obama administration economist working for them. That according to the Wall Street Journal.
