  • Mitt Romney spent the Republican primary joining Republican attacks on women, and now he’s losing among women by 19 points. Romney is trying and failing to Etch-A-Sketch away his record on women by hypocritically misleading voters and attacking President Obama’s record on women and jobs. It’s no surprise women don’t trust Romney to stand up for them – he isn’t willing to do it.
  • Today the campaign released a new digital calculator that individuals can use to see how their tax rate stacks up against Mitt Romney’s – and then see what the Buffett Rule would do to make the tax code fairer so that we can help reduce the deficit and grow the economy.

    Please see this new tax calculator that helps explain the Buffett Rule.

  • President Obama is speaking in Florida today about the Buffett Rule, which closes loopholes and special tax breaks that let the wealthiest pay a lower tax rate than many middle-class families. Vice President Biden will continue this discussion on Thursday in New Hampshire, where he’ll contrast his and the President’s record on tax fairness with the Republicans’.
  • A former Bush administration official – who now works for a research center funded by the Koch brothers – is falsely claiming that the savings in President Obama’s health insurance reforms are “double-counted” and will increase the deficit. But according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the President’s health reforms will actually lower the deficit. The same methodology has been used by Congress in the past under both political parties, including in 1997 and 2005.
  • Today Mitt Romney is attacking President Obama’s all-of-the-above energy strategy that’s helping reduce our dependence on foreign oil so families can save at the pump. Romney is trying to Etch-A-Sketch away the past year when he attacked the President’s investments in clean energy. He’s also advocated a backward-looking drilling and drilling alone strategy that wouldn’t allow America to take control of our energy future.
  • Today the U.S. Supreme Court continues three days of hearings on the new health care law, which is already helping millions of Americans save money and live healthier lives. The administration believes the health care law is constitutional, as do conservative judges on the 6th and D.C. Circuit Courts of Appeals.
