Democracy Now: Romney Accuses Obama of False Claims on GOP Tax Plan

President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney continue to trade barbs on tax issues: namely, Romney’s refusal to release his returns and Obama’s contention that Romney’s tax policies would burden the middle class. At a town hall event in New Hampshire, Romney accused Obama of falsely claiming the Republican tax plan favors the wealthy.

Mitt Romney: “It seems that the first victim of an Obama campaign is the truth. And it has been — it has been sad and disappointing. Frankly, you know, when I became the presumptive nominee, the president called me and congratulated me on becoming the presumptive nominee and said that America deserves an honest debate about the future course of the country, and I agreed. I’m waiting to hear him begin that, because all we’ve heard so far is one attack after the other. And, frankly, they’re not — they’re typically not honest.”
