Romney’s Lies of the Week are back again…

Steve Benen has 16 of them this week… here are three of them:

 

 

  • On taxes, Romney argued, “I’m not looking to lower the tax burden paid by the highest-income Americans. That’s a fundamental principle.”

That’s a fundamental falsehood. Romney’s plan slashes taxes on the wealthy.

  • On a related note, he added, “I’m looking, if there’s any break at all, the break will go to middle-income Americans that have been most hurt by the Obama economy.”

In reality, it’s the rich, not the middle class, that primarily benefits from Romney’s tax plan.

The Romney campaign has never been able to point to a single credible example of Obama attacking success.

Read the rest of them HERE (this is Steve’s 19th week of documentation…you’d think Mitt would realize he’s being covered and just stop it.)

  1. Romney is preaching to his ‘choir’ just as Obama is preaching to his.
    But if enough question it and it gets more and more exposed, the Moderates and Independents are the ones who will begin to hear and question themselves.
    And the question is becoming – ‘What DOES Romney really believe’?
