PITTSBURGH (AP) – It’s not just Medicare. President Barack Obama plans to start picking apart other sections of Republican running mate Paul Ryan’s budget proposals as he looks to paint the GOP ticket as too extreme for the nation.

Obama plans to tell voters in sharply contested Ohio on Tuesday that Ryan’s budget proposal would cut $115 billion from the Education Department, remove 2 million children from Head Start programs and cost 1 million college students their Pell Grants.

Democratic officials involved in Obama’s plan spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the strategy before the president began executing it. Obama was visiting Capitol University in Columbus and a community college in Reno, Nev.

His opponent, Mitt Romney, is raising campaign cash ahead of next week’s GOP convention.
