The Obama campaign Thursday afternoon unveiled a new ad in Florida and several other swing states raising questions about Mitt Romney’s tax plan.
Using footage from Wednesday night’s debate in Denver, the spot starts with a clip of Romney from the debate saying “I’m not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. That’s not my plan.”
The 30-second television ad then cuts to a clip of NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell saying “The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center concluded that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years.”
“Why won’t Romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks?” the ad’s narrator asks.
“Because according to experts, he’d have to raise taxes on the middle class – or increase the deficit to pay for it,” the narrator continues.
Flashing from an image of Romney at last night’s debate to a photo of the Oval Office, the narrator closes with ”If we can’t trust him here… how could we ever trust him here?”
