Romney Says Obama is Distorting GOP Budget Plan
WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama is misrepresenting GOP budget priorities as both men gear up for the fall election.
Romney told newspaper editors and publishers Wednesday that Obama is exaggerating the likely impact of a House Republican budget plan Romney supports. He said Obama claims the plan would make damaging, across-the-board cuts to many federal programs. Romney said the plan instead would eliminate targeted programs such as the 2010 Democratic overhaul of health care.
Romney also said Obama is being coy about his long-term plans for a missile defense system in Europe and other issues. He said now is not the time for a "hide and seek" strategy by a president seeking a second term.
