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."
