Rep. Cantor says 'no question' election revolves around taxes

The No. 2 Republican in the House also used the interview to tout Mitt Romney's tax plan. The Republican challenger is pushing a plan he says would lower rates across the board, but also eliminate various deductions and simplify the tax code in a way that makes lower tax rates revenue neutral.
Romney initially described his plan as a tax cut for everyone, including the rich, but later contended that his plan would not amount to a tax cut for the rich, since many preferred tax breaks would be eliminated during the process.
Cantor maintained that Romney has not been inconsistent in his plan, arguing the main goal is to provide tax relief to working families.
