Claim: Obama Says Romney Wants $5 Trillion Tax Cut

False: In their first debate, the president accused Romney of proposing a $5 trillion tax cut, but as Factcheck.org points out, "Romney has proposed cutting personal federal income tax rates across the board by 20 percent, in addition to extending the tax cuts enacted early in the Bush administration." Romney has also said his rate cuts and tax eliminations would be offset and the deficit wouldn’t increase.
