DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Just hours before Republican presidential nomination candidate Mitt Romney's Dubuque visit Monday afternoon, Iowa Democrats held a media conference to comment on Romney's economic plan.

Iowa state senator Pam Jochum (D-Dubuque) called the former Massachusetts governor's plan a, "carbon copy of the House Republicans' budget."

"His plan wipes out investments essential to creating jobs and promoting growth and leaves millions of older Americans to fend for themselves by privatizing Medicare," she said Monday morning at Bergfeld Recreation Area, just one block from where Romney was scheduled to speak later that day.

Iowa Democrats said Romney's plan weakens the middle class. Jochum said President Obama's American Jobs Act would provide more tax cuts than Romney's plan for small businesses and middle class families.
