Obama campaign launches new attack ad

President Obama's campaign is running a new tv ad in Colorado, claiming Governor Romney's policies would "hit the middle class harder."

The ad says Romney wants to extend tax cuts for millionaires at the expense of middle-income earners.

Romney has called for an extension of tax cuts first approved by former President George W. Bush for all income earners.

Obama wants to let the cuts expire at the end of the year for families making more than $250,000 a year. The ad says Romney doesn't see the "heavy load" the middle class is carrying.

    http://www.usfederalbudget.us/federal_budget_pie GOP will not sacrifice defense. With deficit and no additional revenue from taxing super rich the difference is not going to come from that General Government expense (1%). It's going to be from young (Education), old (Pensions) and sick (Healthcare) who will have to pay. You're going to love it!

      Really! Have you facts to back up your observations, or just relying on your MSNBC/NBC talking heads? Have you taken into consideration that the with the GOP in the drivers seat the economy has historically rebounded, which should pose no threats to those you mention and still fund protection for our country. Oh, you left out women (Tax Payer Funded Birth Control).

        Yeah, still enjoying aftertaste of Bush rebound. Economy has rebounded (stock market, corporate profits). Should start trickling down on you any moment now... If I didn't have kids I would vote Romney just to make you clowns see what you wish for. I'll do fine regardless.

    The middle class has shrunk drasticly since the democrats took power in 2007, then came the policys of obama, they are working to shrink the middle class out of existance. The cost of obamacare is at 2.6 trillion and this is only September, what will it be by the end of the year? That 2.6 trillion number is from the CBO, obama said it would "only" cost 900 billion over ten years, at the rate it's going, obamacare could cost as much as 11 trillion over ten years. Is this another untruth told by the democrats?

    That's right. Obama want's the Bush tax cuts, which gave EVERYONE an across the board tax break, to expire and go away. He can then replace them with his version, carrying his name, which only gives tax breaks to a portion of taxpayers thus fostering and aiding war between the classes. Obama is a master at fostering hatred and envy between groups based on race, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, financial level and political party without regard for the damage he's causing our country.

      Why not , Obama hates America and all we have fought to create. In spite of this Tyrant, we need to stick together and show him we don’t need this Government to tell us how to live, or abide by their rules. We know what is right and live by those rules. If we stick together, we can even beat the Zhar’s and the stagnating Bureaucracy Obama has created.
