mpymt rat, whh h attrb-
uted to Democratic policy. “I think
w ught t sd hm a pk sp.I thk w ught t sd PrsdtObama bak t Chag,” h sad.
Romney spent most o his
sph addrssg Obama’s “ad
economic policies.” He listed the
200 Amra Rry ad R-
investment Act — known collo-quially as the stimulus bill — as
w as hath ar ad Wa Strt
reorm legislation as examples o
the administration’s ailed attempts
t shr up th my.
He proposed instead reducing
th dra burauray by 0 pr-
cent, lowering tax rates and cutting
ft grmt prgrams.
National, state and local govern-ments currently control 38 percent
o the economy, Romney said, and i
Obama’s health care bill remains in
pa, th grmt wud -
trol 50 percent o the economy. “Atwhat point do you stop being a ree
economy, by the way? And a ree
at?” h askd.
Government “running theeconomy, telling us how to liveour lives, telling us what kind o
health care we can have, what kindo treatment we can receive — that’swhere we’re headed,” Romney said.“Tat’s the course to become more
like Europe. Europe doesn’t work
Eurp. I d’t wat t hr, arght?” h addd.
Romney also said Obama’s deci-
sion to cut deense spending hasharmed America’s security. “Weneed to have a military so strong
that no one in the world would ever
think o testing it,” he said. “I I were
president, I would take our ship-building not down but rom nine
t 35 (shps) pr yar. I’d purhas
more F-35s. I would add about100,000 troops to our active duty personnel, and I’d make sure our
veterans get the care they deserve,”
Aer speaking, Romney took
qusts rm th aud. Stat
Rep. Doreen Costa, R-Exeter andNorth Kingstown, asked Romney
or advice on addressing illegal im-
mgrat py, k a rt aw
passed in Rhode Island that gives
illegal immigrants in-state tuition at
state colleges and universities. Call-ing the Republican Party “the party o immigration,” Romney vowed to
stop illegal immigration in orderto allow the country to bring inmore legal immigrants, who havethe education and language skills
to help America’s economy, he said.
Rmy’s rmarks wr gr-
ally well-received, but some Re-
pubas rusd t d that
the primary race is over. Michael

Rhd Isad, sad h s wgt supprt Rmy th grat, but h w t r G-
grich, the ormer speaker o the
House, in the primaries. Gingrich is“a conservative, who balanced our
budgets consecutively,” Gardiner
sad. “H passd th rst baad
budget in 25 years (as Speaker o the
Hus). H -authrd th C-
tract with America. … His creden-
tas ar ubab,” h addd.
But Heather Swagart, a Con-necticut native, said Romney was
“ry sprg.”“H aswrd a t my qus-
tions, and I think more o the Unit-ed States needs to listen to what he
has t say,” sh addd.“I dty thk t was a -
spiring speech,” said Allan Fung,mayor o Cranston. “He hits a lot
o points, particularly with respect
t th m ds ur ty ad ur stat ad ur utry,” haddd.
“We need to go back to the capi-talist experience,” Fung said. “Tere

Many Brown students attended
the event in support o Romney.

that were really well thought outand not just political jargon,”Drechsler said. “I really think he
