Obama Accuses Romney Of Only Caring For People "Just Like Him"
“Romney’s plan looks out for people just like him,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina. “He’s trying to obscure how much he would benefit by hiding his own tax records.”
The line is part of the Obama campaign strategy to try to paint Romney as out of touch due to his wealth. Romney's team has made a similar charge about Obama.
Messina was speaking to reporters about Obama's support for the so-called "Buffett Rule," which the Senate will vote on next week.
Romney strongly opposes the measure, which would increase capital gains taxes on millionaires. It was named after billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who has said he plays a lower tax rate than his secretary.
