Presidential candidates talking jobs, healthcare

NATIONAL -- The presidential candidates were out on the campaign trail in Massachusetts and Florida.

Republican Mitt Romney went on the offensive today, attacking President Obama on jobs.

The GOP candidate toured a Boston factory on Thursday.

"The President has not met with his jobs council in the last six months. And over the last six months he's done 106 fundraisers," Romney said. "So, I think you learn something about President Obama's priorities. The job he's interested in protecting is his own."

Romney has been under fire the past week over his tax records.

In Florida, President Obama was on the campaign trail in Florida where he attacked Romney on health care.

"He plans to roll back health care reform forcing more than 200,000 Floridians to pay more for their prescription drugs," Obama said.

Two released polls today show the two candidates virtually tied among voters.
