Once again, the Obama campaign is hanging its hat on a report done by hyper-partisan Progressives. This time it's the Tax Policy Center, who have a long history of being in opposition to any kind of tax cuts. The Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute are well-known liberal organizations and have teamed up to produce Obama campaign material. This is nothing new; Conservatives have their own 'think tanks' that do research and reports on taxes, social policy, education, the economy, etc. The network media, however, have portrayed the Tax Policy Center as being non-partisan, which is patently false. The Obama campaign stressed this falsehood when they cited a report on Mitt Romney's tax plan done by the ultra-liberal Tax Policy Center.
Thankfully, the Wall Street Journal has ripped the report as being completely without merit.
The following is their opinion piece from August 8th, 2012, entitled, The Romney Hood Fairy Tale - The false, invented analysis behind Obama's tax claims.
