GOP says Dems going against Obama tax plan

The Republican National Committee has collated a list of recent comments from Democrats that have spoken out against allowing tax cuts for wealthy Americans, colloquially known as "the Bush tax cuts" of 2001 and 2003, to expire.
This has already become a  key issue in the election. Republicans favor allowing the cuts to remain for now, or even making them permanent. President Barack Obama would like to allow the cuts, which affect about 2 percent of the nation's wealthiest citizens, to expire on time Dec. 31. Some Democrats now appear to be swinging to the right on this one in the run-up to what could be a very good year for Republican candidates.
The Washington Post's William Gale recently took on some talking points from both sides on this issue.
