The Obama campaign Tuesday will launch a new ad targeting women voters that accuses Mitt Romney of having a “tough luck” attitude toward the middle class, claiming his tax plan would end deductions that benefit the middle class to subsidize further tax breaks for the rich.
That message, though consistent with the Democrats’ approach to the Republican presidential nominee, has added resonance on the heels of the release of secretly recorded comments in which Romney says that voters who are “dependent upon government” will vote for Obama “no matter what.”
A narrator in the new ad says that “moms … would be stretched even more under Mitt Romney” and that his tax plan would end deductions for child care, home mortgages and college tuition. The ad will air in Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
A woman, identified as Christie, says Romney seems to be “so focused on big business and tax cuts for the wealthy, it’s seems like his answers to middle-class America are just tough, tough luck.”
