Obama Hammers Romney on Tax Plan

President Obama hit Mitt Romney over his tax plan, "highlighting a new study that said the Republican challenger's blueprint could leave poor and middle-class Americans paying more to the IRS to offset tax cuts for the wealthiest," ABC News reports.

Said Obama: "And here's the thing: He's not asking you to contribute more to pay down the deficit, he's not asking you to pay more to invest in our children's education, or rebuild our roads or put more folks back to work. He's asking you to pay more so that people like him can get a big tax cut."

Meanwhile, the Romney campaign is pushing back saying the report was conducted by a "liberal" group. However, TPM finds the Romney campaign cited the same group as "objective, third party analysis" during the Republican presidential primary season.
