Obama camp urges young voters to warn their grandparents about Romney-Ryan

Source: Politico

The Obama campaign on Friday launched a new campaign asking young people to send e-cards to their parents and grandparents warning them that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will increase taxes on their Social Security benefits.

"Romney wants to raise taxes on benefits that seniors have already paid for so that millionaires can pay less," one card asserts. Another says: "These are the people who taught us to whistle and tie our shoes, so no, you can't raise taxes on their social security benefits by $460 a year."

The campaign is designed to coincide with a trip by Vice President Joe Biden to Florida, where he will push the same points.

"Romney’s $5 trillion tax cut plan will either drive up the deficit or raise middle-class taxes and – if these tax increases are made across the board – an average middle-class senior could pay $460 more in taxes on his or her benefits," the campaign said in a statement.

The Politico article shows the "Dear Grandma" card, which is my favorite.
