"When Romney compared the $5 Trillion tax cuts assertion to 'my five boys saying something that's not always true but just keep repeating it and ultimately hoping I'll believe it,' it was a perfect opening for the President to retort, 'But you have proposed a 20% across-the board tax cut. You can't have a family, or America, headed by a magician who miraculously pulls a rabbit out of a hat -- money does not grow on the trees of rich tax cuts. When you refuse to say where you will get the deductions and loopholes to pay for your cut, the American people recognize blue smoke and mirrors and want real answers, not a secret plan that can make them bankrupt. Mitt, how much would you cut deductions for home mortgages, or charities, or health benefits that Americans need and which help our economy—and don't say 'tell you later'?'"Likewise, says Weiner, "On Social Security, it was inexcusable for the President to say 'we think alike' instead of 'Republicans have been pressing for privatization for years.' As for the Medicare $716 billion cut, it was amazing the President did not point out that his cut was against insurance company overcharging and the money went to seniors' drug 'doughnut hole' coverage and adding years to Medicare's solvency, whereas the Republicans voted to cut actual benefits."
