The “Romney Economics: Middle Class Under the Bus” tour heads south

Mitt Romney's campaign bus rolls into Southern battleground states this weekend, but there's a lot that the residents of Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio won't hear from the Republican candidate on his tour. That's why we're hitting the road on a bus of our own: to spread the word that Romney Economics throws the middle class under the bus.

Mitt Romney's campaign bus rolls into Southern battleground states this weekend, but there's a lot that the residents of Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio won't hear from the Republican candidate on his tour. Romney won't tell voters that the number of small businesses in Massachusetts shrank under his watch as governor of Massachusetts—or that his state dropped to 47th out of 50 in job creation under his watch. And he certainly won't mention that he's proposing to raise taxes on middle-class families to pay for huge tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans.

That's why we're hitting the road on a bus of our own: to spread the word that Romney Economics throws the middle class under the bus.

From Friday through Monday, we'll be joined by Massachusetts residents who lived through Romney Economics once—and don't want to repeat the experience. We'll meet up with elected officials like Democratic Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, small-business owners, and volunteers along the way.

Check back often for photos, blog posts, tweets, and videos, and join in the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #RomneyEconomics.

First stop: Alexandria, Virginia.
