PATASKALA, Ohio — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says businesses can deal with bad news — it's uncertainty that they struggle with.
The GOP front-runner on Wednesday said policies from the past two years under President Barack Obama have contributed to more uncertainty and deepened the effects of the recession.
Romney made the comments on manufacturer's factory floor. The stop in Pataskala (puh-TAS'-kuh-luh) is part of his broader strategy to focus more on the general election race — and Obama — than the GOP primary contest.
While there, Romney declined to comment on the debt limit negotiations in Washington, only saying that he favored a "cut, cap and balance" approach to federal spending, which means cutting and capping spending and passing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
