Dems Say Romney Can’t Be Trusted

The Obama campaign recruited Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) today to blast GOP candidate Mitt Romney ahead of Tuesday’s presidential debate.

In a conference call with reporters, Maloney hit Romney hard on his opposition to Obama’s healthcare law, which she said contains a host of key benefits for women.

“Mitt Romney has literally promised to be bad for women from Day One,” Maloney said.” The New York Democrat also argued that Romney would end federal funding to the Title X program, which steers money to Planned Parenthood.

For months, the Obama campaign has painted Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), as crusaders in a so-called ‘war on women.’ They’ve claimed that Romney can’t be trusted to protect women when it comes to things like better healthcare, access to reproductive services and equal pay.

“He’s like jello,” Maloney said. “You can’t pin him down on where he really is on these issues.”

Romney, meanwhile, will look to build on a successful performance in his first debate against Obama when the two meet tomorrow night in Hempstead, N.Y..
