Obama gets personal over Romney’s ‘fairy dust’ tax cut

ORLANDO, Florida — President Barack Obama warned Thursday that Mitt Romney’s “fairy dust” tax cuts would swell his millionaire Republican foe’s personal wealth while sticking the middle class with the bill.

In a punchy new personal attack ad running in battleground states, the Obama camp said Romney would hike taxes on families with children by $2,000 to pay for his $5 trillion tax plan that would mostly benefit the wealthy.

“You work hard, stretch every penny,” the ad said, showing a picture of a man working at a desk and a woman comparing cans of tuna at a supermarket.

“But chances are you pay a higher tax rate than him,” the sonorous voice of the narrator said, as a picture of a smiling Romney, a former venture capitalist, flashed on screen.
