New Obama ad in Florida raises questions about Romney's tax proposal



Quick after last night's flat debate performance, the Obama campaign is launching this new ad in Florida and several other key states. It focuses on questions about Mitt Romney's tax proposal. “Why won’t Romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks?" a narrator asks.

Romney response:

“Last night, we saw the clear choice in this campaign. The President can’t defend his record of failure on jobs and the economy so he has to lie about Mitt Romney’s pro-growth economic policies. President Obama is the only candidate running on a plan to raise taxes on job creators and small business – this is one more reason he does not deserve a second term. Mitt Romney proved again last night that he is the candidate with a record of leadership and an economic plan that will lower tax rates for the middle class, foster upward mobility and increase take-home pay.” – Jeff Bechdel, Romney spokesman
