Jumping on Obama’s assertion on Friday that the "private sector's doing fine" - which he later dialed back - Romney said at a campaign event later in the day in Iowa that the president is "pushing aside the private sector" in favor of more government. That includes supporting economic stimulus measures that helped cash-strapped local governments pay the salaries of some public employees.

(CNN) - President Barack Obama on Saturday urged congressional action to help cash-strapped local governments fund teacher positions, while Republicans called for passage of their jobs plan and repeal of the health care law.
