DURHAM, N.H. (AP) â€” Democrats aren't easing up on their criticism of Mitt Romney over his secretly-recorded comments to donors in which he said it's not his job to care about the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal taxes -- and, according to Romney, see themselves as victims.
Former President Bill Clinton told a rally today at the University of New Hampshire in Durham that many of those who don't pay federal income taxes are working families -- and that both parties have agreed that those families shouldn't have to raise their children in poverty.
Clinton also said criticism of Americans who don't pay federal income taxes is ironic, coming from a man who holds accounts in the Cayman Islands.
But Republicans, in turn, are zeroing-in on a remark yesterday from Vice President Joe Biden. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told a rally in Denver today that the middle class "has been buried" over the last four years -- and that he was quoting "the distinguished vice president of the United States."
