Well, Mitt Romney didn’t take President Obama’s deal (essentially, release more tax returns and we’ll stop talking about them). So here’s a new Priorities USA Action ad using Romney’s interview Thursday to hammer his tax rate.
“Small-minded” is airing in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
ROMNEY: “The fascination with taxes I paid I find to be very small minded…I’ve paid at least 13 percent.”
NARRATOR: But under one of Paul Ryan’s budget plans, Romney would pay only 1 percent. That’s right. Mitt Romney’s worth $200 million dollars, but under Paul Ryan’s budget, he’d pay only 1 percent in taxes, while middle class families would pay $1000 more. Romney and Ryan. If they win, the middle class losses.
