Danville, Virginia (WXOW) - Following remarks by Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan, the Obama campaign responded.
"Congressman Ryan talked a lot about redistribution today, which is exactly what he and Mitt Romney are proposing to do if elected. While President Obama cut taxes for the typical middle class family by $3,600 over his first term, the Romney-Ryan plan would actually raise taxes on the middle class by cutting deductions like those for mortgage interest and charitable contributions in order to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires. And they'd make deep cuts to ‘handouts' like student financial aid while turning Medicare into a voucher program, increasing health care costs for seniors – the same group Mitt Romney disparages in private. That's certainly not a plan to strengthen the middle class – it's a plan to turn hard-earned middle class income into special breaks for the wealthiest."—Danny Kanner, campaign spokesman
