“We have two very different courses for America: trickle-down government or prosperity through freedom. And trickle down government which the president proposes is one where he will raise taxes on small business, which will kill jobs. I instead want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs,” Romney said.
Romney made the appearance before traveling to Virginia. He’ll attend a rally there in the evening.MORE NEWS: Deadly Head-On Crash On Highway 86 Happened Shortly After Deputy Tried To Stop Driver, Sheriff's Office Says
