When Romney picked Paul Ryan as his running mate, Wisconsin knew that the majority would not be represented in his policies.
The Romney-Ryan top-down approach provides trillions in tax breaks skewed to the wealthiest Americans, and to pay for it, burdens the middle-class. Ultimately — Ryan's own proposal would let Romney pay less than one percent in taxes.
According to nonpartisan tax experts, it would cost middle-class families with children an average of more than $2,000 a year to pay for budget-busting tax cuts for millionaires like Romney. Middle class families pay more, and critical investments like education, energy, infrastructure, veterans and Medicare are deeply cut.
