HOLLAND, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - People across America will be holding "We Build This" events on Wednesday.
It's aimed at allowing small business owners the opportunity to respond to a claim the Romney campaign says President Obama made. The Romney campaign quotes Obama as saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build it. Somebody else made that happen."
The MittRomney.com website states: "President Obama believes that government, and not people, builds businesses and creates jobs. Freedom and the hard work and innovation of entrepreneurs build successful businesses."
