“In a shallow attempt to show concern for the middle class, Mitt Romney told CNN today he’s not concerned about the very poor. But his policy proposals make clear that he also isn’t very concerned about the middle class – his tax plan provides a modest tax cut, about $167, for middle class families but provides about $146,000 for families making more than $1 million,” the DNC said in a statement.
It was that theme – that Romney’s economic proposals would privilege the wealthiest Americans – that Democrats hammered on in the commercial.
“It’s clear Romney wouldn’t fight for the middle class if he were President,” on screen text reads. “Mitt Romney: Not concerned about the poor… or the middle class.”
