Democrats could have been attacking Republicans on taxes all along, particularly for the inequities in the code which mean that the poor and the middle-class pay much more in terms of what they need to pay for food and housing, while the wealthy and corporations get tax incentives to make more profit. But Democrats have traditionally run from the tax fight. Lost in the details — and the fun — of Romney’s tax returns and disdain for the 47% is that the Democrats have finally found a way to reverse the tax debate and force Republicans to pay defense. The Obama campaign is handling this very well in their ads so far, not at all resting on the laurels of their recent advances in the polls.
