DNC Chairwoman Raises Questions About Romney's Tax Plan and Ryan's Medicare Reform
Democratic Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued touting the notion that Mitt Romney is proposing a $5 trillion dollar tax cut skewed toward the wealthy. She said in on America’s Election HQ that, “Independent experts that have looked at it said that you have to increase taxes on the middle class to get to that 20 percent rate cut and the $5 trillion dollars that he’s proposed.”
Schultz said that President Obama has proposed a budget that is completely transparent and shows how to get to a balanced approach to budget deficit reduction.
When it comes to Medicare, Schultz said, “Mitt Romney […] said on that stage Wednesday night, that he thinks the Medicare guarantee should end and we should turn it into a voucher system and we should decrease benefits for seniors and Medicare to make it solvent.”
