Obama: Romney Needs Tax Cut ‘Even Less Than I Do’

President Barack Obama on Wednesday made his familiar case for raising taxes on the highest income earners during a campaign rally in Charlottesville, Va., arguing that he and — especially — his opponent, Mitt Romney, don’t need to pay less.

“In just over two months, you can make a decision about which path we take,” Obama told the crowd at the University of Virginia.  “You can give a tax cut to me or Mr. Romney, who don’t need it. He needs it even less than I do.”
