GOP hopeful Mitt Romney will make a major speech on the economy Friday in Michigan.

He'll lay out his economic plan, which is expected to call for tax cuts and reforms to Social Security and Medicare.

The candidate, who infamously penned an opinion piece for The New York Times entitled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt," is expected to get a harsh reaction from the automobile industry, which decries Romney's opposition to President Obama's successful auto-industry bailout. Members and supporters of the United Auto Workers have planned a rally in Detroit, where they will spell out Romney's headline on 26 American-made cars.

Romney has defended his stance by saying that auto companies should have taken care of their problems themselves rather than relying on government money.

Romney is neck-and-neck in the state he grew up in with a surging Rick Santorum. Many political analysts believe a loss in Michigan would be disastrous for his campaign.

Voters will go to the polls in Michigan and Arizona Tuesday.
