Karl Rove's American Crossroads has a new ad that goes after President Obama for wanting to raise taxes. What the ad doesn't say is that President Obama wants to raise taxes on wealthy Americans while preserving the payroll tax cut for middle- and working-class families. Republicans, generally, want to keep the tax cuts for the rich -- the so-called job creators -- and lose them for ordinary Americans.
American Crossroads plans to air the ads in markets where the president travels to pitch his economic plan. Through August, campaign finance reports show American Crossroads with $5.6 million on hand, much of it -- again -- from a few rich contributors.(H/T Politico's Mike Allen)
