Democrat Kettle Calls Republican Pot..

Obama campaign officials and Democrats consider the Ryan plan a gift from Republicans, helping them to make the case that the GOP is beholden to wealthy interests at the expense of lower-income families.

Changes in the federal income tax rates that Ryan proposed would mostly benefit individuals making more than $200,000, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

"When compared to the priorities of the president and Democrats, the Romney-Ryan budget stands in stark contrast and demonstrates where each party's priorities lie," Hoyer said. "And that is what this election is all about -- who is on the side of working people and the middle class."
Both parties have rich supporters. The difference is that rich Republicans get richer by creating wealth. Rich Democrats get richer through wealth transfers from the middle class.
