Obama Dubs Opponent Mitt’s Tax Plan “Romney Hood”

Posted on August 7, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

President Obama at a campaign event last night in Connecticut slammed GOP Mitt Romney’s tax cut plan hard and came up with a pretty good sound bite. Take a look:

“[The independent Tax Policy Center] determined that Governor Romney’s plan would effectively raise taxes on middle-class families with children by an average of $2,000 — to pay for this tax cut. Not to reduce the deficit. Not to invest in things that grow our economy, like education or roads or basic research. He’d ask the middle class to pay more in taxes so that he could give another $250,000 tax cut to people making more than $3 million a year. (Boo.)
It’s like Robin Hood in reverse. It’s Romney Hood.

Bonus: The Obama camapign now has a handy tax calculator widget where one can plug in their annualized income, whether filing married or single and number of dependents. It will then tell you, once the variables are entered, whose plan will save you money versus whose will make you pay more.
