ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says he wants everyone to be rich but isn't comfortable defining that threshold.

The Republican presidential contender said during a debate on Thursday that he wants all Americans to have the same opportunities to build wealth while President Barack Obama's Democratic Party wants to raise taxes on wealthy workers and give that money to poorer Americans.

Romney is a retired business executive who has a vast personal fortune. He says he has the background to help jumpstart the struggling U.S. economy. Romney says his experience creating jobs in the private sector has prepared him for the presidency.

Romney says the middle-income families have been the worst hit under Obama and his economic plan would help them.
