New Obama Ad: ‘Lower Tax Rates for [Romney] Than Us’

Chicago is back on the Mitt-Romney-is-rich-and-doesn’t-pay-enough-in-taxes bandwagon. Here is the script for their latest ad:

CBS’ Scott Pelley: “You made on your investments personally about $20 million last year and you paid 14% in federal taxes. That’s the capital gains rate. Is that fair to the guy who makes $50,000 and paid a higher rate than you did? … So you think it is fair?”

Romney: “Yeah, I think it’s the right way to encourage economic growth.”

Narrator: Lower tax rates for him … than us. Is that the way to grow America?
