POTUS Stumps In Mansfield
President Obama says Republican challenger Mitt Romney's economic plan would give tax cuts to the richest Americans at the expense of popular tax breaks for most everyone else. On a campaign trip in Mansfield today, the president said Romney's tax proposal would force many people to give up popular tax deductions that allow them to buy a house, afford health care and send their kids to college. He pointed to a new report that concluded Romney's economic plan would shift the tax burden from wealthy taxpayers to low- and middle-class taxpayers. A Romney spokesperson says the former Massachusetts Governor believes lower tax rates will jump-start the economy.
