Ben LaBolt, press secretary for the Obama campaign, said Wednesday on MSNBC that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the ones who want to redistribute wealth — from middle- and lower-income Americans to the wealthy. LaBolt was responding to recent attacks from Romney and the RNC that Obama believes in redistributing wealth.
“Want to talk about redistribution, Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan would redistribute wealth from middle-class families to the wealthiest Americans,” LaBolt said. “The president has cut taxes for middle-class families by $3,600. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would raise taxes on them by $2,000 to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.”
