New Romney Ad Says Obama Not Telling the Truth
On Sunday, Mitt Romney the Republican presidential nominee unveiled another new television ad that pushed back claims by President Obama that his Republican challenger misrepresented the tax reform ticket for the GOP in the debate last Wednesday.
The voice on the ad said the President Obama is continuing to distort the economic plan of Mitt Romney. On Wednesday, in the first debate of the presidential candidates, Obama charged that his challenger’s plan calls for a tax cut of $5 trillion. Romney has made known on many occasions that he would cut taxes for everyone and that the tax cut would not hurt the federal deficit, but instead would help to increase revenues and growth by closing loopholes.
At the debate on Wednesday, Romney said he was not looking for a cut of $5 trillion, but would include a tax cut that would not affect the deficit. However, the Obama campaign says Romney failed to name which deductions and loopholes he would be targeting and the plan would create a greater burden on the people in the middle class.
Both campaigns since Wednesday’s debate have pushed back and forth about points made during the debate, with each side charging that the other was dishonest.
The new ad for TV by Romney cites reports on the news that question the figures from the Obama campaign on the tax cut size proposed by Romney. Even Stephanie Cutter, the deputy manager for the Obama campaign is seen in an edited clip saying the tax cut by Romney will not even approach $5 trillion.
