CNN reports:


Adding a new attack line on Monday to his stump speech, the president railed against rival Mitt Romney’s tax proposals, saying they amount to “Robin Hood in reverse.”

“It’s Romney Hood,” the president added to loud applause from 500 supporters in a Stamford, Connecticut ballroom.

The Obama campaign is pushing the Tax Policy Center study, which says that if Romney does not wish to increase the deficit, his tax cuts for more affluent Americans will require raising taxes on non-wealthy Americans. The Romney campaign has previously dismissed that study as “a joke” and has noted that one of the authors is had previously worked for Obama on the White House economic team.
