Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited Acme Industries just outside of Chicago Tuesday morning. He delivered a message of economic self-sufficiency to the company's 150 workers and accused President Barack Obama of attempting to dismantle welfare reforms enacted in the '90s by President Bill Clinton. "We will end a culture of dependency and restore a culture of good hard work," Romney said.
