In The Region:

President Obama visited Lorain County Community College today Wednesday to praise its job training programs. And he noted that many such programs would be cut under a House-passed budget bill backed by likely Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Mr. Obama noted that nearly all of the students participating in the Lorain program find work.

“Here in Lorain County, 90 percent of the people who graduate from this program have a job three months later. Ninety percent. That’s a big deal. Why would we want to cut this program to give folks like me a tax cut that we don’t need and that the country cannot afford?” 

The president says the cuts proposed by the GOP budget would eliminate training and employment programs for 13,000 Ohioans next year, and 37,000 in 2013.

A bus from the Romney campaign also showed up in Lorain, and Republicans argue that the stimulus package backed by Mr. Obama has failed. They dismiss his call for an increase in the tax rate for the rich as a gimmick, and say wealthier people create jobs.
