Obama Campaign Highlights Massachusetts Debt Under Romney
Under Governor Romney Massachusetts became number one in per-capita debt.
“Number One,” a 30-second spot, claims Massachusetts debt grew $2.6 billion during Romney’s tenure between 2003 and 2007 to $18 billion, or $4,153 per person, according to Moody’s 2007 State Debt Medians cited in the ad.
“First in debt. Forty-seventh in job creation. That’s Romney economics,” the ad says.
