resident Obama is zeroing in on Paul Ryan's tax plan, arguing that the presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee wants to cut Mitt Romney's taxes. "The centerpiece of my opponent's entire economic plan is a new, $5 trillion tax cut, a lot of it going to the wealthiest Americans," Obama said in New Hampshire on Saturday. "And his new running mate, Congressman Ryan, put forward a plan that would let Gov. Romney pay less than 1 percent in taxes each year. Here's the kicker: He expects you to pick up the tab." Obama's heated rhetoric comes as Democrats continue to call on Romney to release his taxes.
