CINCINNATI, OH (Toledo News Now) – President Barack Obama stressed the difference between his and his opponent's tax plan at a town hall event in Cincinnati Monday.
About 1,200 people were in attendance at the Cincinnati Music Hall in downtown Cincinnati to hear the president reiterate his plan to keep taxes at current levels for a majority of Americans, while increasing taxes on those making more than $250,000 per year.
Obama then turned to his November opponent, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The president criticized Romney for supporting a plan to eliminate taxes on foreign-based earnings by U.S. companies.
Toledo News Now's Rob Wiercinski sat down with President Obama for a one-on-one interview, and asked the president about territorial tax policy, and why even some of his own advisors support a plan similar to Romney's.
Due to an agreement with the Obama campaign, footage from Rob's interview with President Obama will air starting on WTOL11 Your Morning at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. Check back to ToledoNewsNow.com Tuesday for raw video of Rob's interview with the president.
