President Barack Obama made a campaign stop on Wednesday in Mansfield, Ohio. He is expected to attack his opponent, former Republican Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, oh his tax plan, according to CNN.

“The centerpiece of my opponent’s entire economic plan is a new, $5 trillion tax cut. A lot of this tax cut would go to the wealthiest 1% of all households. Folks making more than $3 million a year – the top one-tenth of one percent – would get a tax cut worth almost a quarter of a million dollars. A quarter of a million dollars,” CNN reported that Obama will say from his prepared remarks.

“But it gets worse. Under my opponent’s plan, guess who gets the bill for these $250,000 tax cuts? You do. And you don’t have to take my word for it.”
