Milwaukee, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- President Obama is on the campaign trail in Wisconsin Saturday, just 45 days away from November's election.

Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett and his wife, Kris, greeted the President as he arrived at the Milwaukee Theatre.

During a campaign speech there, the President criticized tax cuts under Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney's plan.

He said Romney believes in top down economics and has proposed tax cuts skewed toward the wealthy.

Meanwhile, Obama pledged he would not slash investments and make young people pay more for college to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

He vowed that Medicare would not become a voucher program and that he would not turn Social Security over to Wall Street.

"Instead of giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas, we want to give tax breaks to companies that are investing in new plants, and equipment, and workers right here, in Milwaukee, right here in Wisconsin-right here, in the United States of America," President Obama said.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be in Appleton next week for a campaign appearance.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is campaigning in Florida.
