MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney is accusing President Barack Obama of distorting the positions of the Republican ticket when it comes to taxes.
Romney told about 3,000 people at an outdoor rally in New Hampshire, "It seems that the first victim of an Obama campaign is the truth."
Romney said there's just been "one attack after another" from the Democrats -- and that perhaps only one of the many TV ads from the Democratic side is "honest."
When it comes to taxes, Romney said, he will "not raise taxes on anyone." He said, "Mr. President, stop saying something that's not the truth."
Obama has said Romney's bid to cut taxes on capital gains and other means of income would shift the overall tax burden toward middle-income Americans.
Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, also blasted Obama's Medicare plan -- which would reduce Medicare's projected growth by $716 billion over 10 years. But that part of the plan was once embraced by Ryan.
