|In his acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination, former governor Mitt Romney focused more on his biography than his policy positions. But there were moments when his facts went awry or were missing important context. For example - 'Unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class.' Romney appears to be referring to mandates in the health-care law, but overall Obama has cut taxes broadly for the middle class. He has extended Bush tax cuts, included a 'Making Work Pay' credit in the stimulus bill, and reduced payroll taxes by two percentage points in the past two years. Obama has called for raising taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year.|
