Romney Advisor Calls Obama Tax Calculator Based on GOP Data a ‘Joke’

BarackObama.com(WASHINGTON) -- The Obama campaign has posted two interactive tools on its website, the most recent with a banner headline proclaiming "The Romney Tax Hike."

It is an interactive map that claims to show where 158 million Americans "could" face a tax increase to pay for Republican proposals, with the math based on a think tank report that Republicans reject and one Romney advisor called “a joke.”

The other tool is an online calculator where there is a space to enter a salary level, filing status, and dependents.  The page instantly produces comparisons to projected tax savings under Obama policies, past savings over the last four years, and an estimated projection of a tax “increase” under what is says are Gov. Romney’s proposals.  

A disclaimer at the end admits the calculator “makes a number of simplifying assumptions.”
