RomneyTaxPlan.com would be the logical place a voter would turn to learn more about Mitt Romney’s plan to cut taxes for Americans by 20 percent while eliminating loopholes. Unfortunately for Romney, Democrats figured that out before he could.
The Democratic National Committee unveiled RomneyTaxPlan.com, a dig at what they see as a lack of specifics from Romney on exactly how his plan would work.
Visitors to RomneyTaxPlan.com see the following message: “For a detailed explanation of how the Romney-Ryan tax plan is able to cut taxes by $5 trillion without raising taxes on the middle class or exploding the deficit, simply click the button below.” But when they try to click it, the button dances all over the page, until they finally give up with the knowledge that they won’t be able to see the details.
At the bottom of RomneyTaxPlan.com, the DNC posts a message that Romney’s tax plan would stick the middle class with a $5 trillion tax bill for cuts largely favoring the risk. It then links to the “Truth Team” page with figures of how Romney’s plan would add to the deficit while putting the middle class in a squeeze.
RomneyTaxPlan.com goes on:
“Even the studies that Romney has cited to claim his plan adds up still show he would need to raise middle class taxes. In fact, Harvard economist Martin Feldstein and Princeton economist Harvey Rosen both concede that paying for Romney’s tax cuts would require large tax increases on families making between $100,000 and $200,000.”
The criticism on RomneyTaxPlan.com is part of a major attack for Obama and his surrogates on Romney’s plan, The Huffington Post noted. Bill Clinton blasted the plan, calling it an “illusion, while former Reagan economic adviser Bruce Bartlett said the plan won’t promote economic growth.
