After sitting out from the debate, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has come out against the debt ceiling compromise reached in Washington over the weekend. Though his party's leadership is supporting the compromise after weeks of conflict with President Obama, Romney is appealing to the Tea Party element of the Republican party by opposing raising the debt ceiling—a move he says "opens the door" to higher taxes. The former Massachusetts governor is also making headlines for his fundraising—a political action committee raised $12 million in the first half of 2011 to support his run for president.
