House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama doesn't care about the middle class.

The Ohio Republican told reporters at the Capitol Wednesday that Obama's focus on discrepancies over when Romney left his private equity firm is meant to distract from the president's stewardship of the economy.

Boehner said the president's focus on Romney's tenure at Bain Capital shows that Obama, in Boehner's words, "doesn't give a damn about middle class Americans who are out there looking for work." He said voters are more concerned about unemployment than what's in Romney's tax returns.

Romney has said he left Bain Capital in February 1999, but federal filings list him as sole owner and CEO through February 2001.

Obama's campaign and others have been pressuring Romney to make his returns public.
