Presidential Debate 2012: Mitt Romney Puts Spain As Example of What not to do in Public Spending: The Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, has put Spain as an example of what not to do in terms of public spending, in the first of three debates to be held before the U.S. presidential elections, scheduled for 6 to November.

“Spain spends 42 percent of its economy in government spending, I do not want to go that route, I want to go by way of creating jobs in this country,” he said, on the part of the election debate for the deficit.

The first face-off between Romney and U.S. President Barack Obama, who aspires to reelection, held at the University of Denver and is expected to last about 90 minutes that will talk about the economy, health and the role of the federal government .
