PolitiFact: Florida Democrats say Mitt Romney called middle-class tax cuts 'little Band-Aids'



 The Florida Democratic Party recently called out Republicans who opposed extending President Barack Obama's payroll tax cut.


"With Republicans like Mitt Romney belittling middle class tax cuts as nothing more than 'little Band-Aids,' the Republican Party is sending a clear signal to the American people: they are willing to raise taxes on middle-class Americans just to pay for more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires and big oil," executive director Scott Arceneaux said in a Dec. 1 news release.

PolitiFact Florida wondered — did Romney really say that?
