MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mitt Romney is making his closing argument, warning that re-electing President Barack Obama would threaten another government shutdown and national default.
  
"We ask you to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the ads. Look to the record, the accomplishments and failures, and the judgment," Romney said at State Fair Park in West Allis. Words are cheap. A record is real and earned with effort. Change cannot be measured in speeches; it is measured in achievements."
  
The Republican nominee says Obama is unable to work with Congress and it will be more of the same gridlock when issues such as raising the debt ceiling come up again.  Romney says that could lead to a government shutdown or national default that could chill the economy.
