Tax Cuts for the Rich

"According to a new analysis by the Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain are both proposing tax plans that would result in cuts for most American families. Obama's plan gives the biggest cuts to those who make the least, while McCain would give the largest cuts to the very wealthy. For the approximately 147,000 families that make up the top 0.1 percent of the income scale, the difference between the two plans is stark. While McCain offers a $269,364 tax cut, Obama would raise their taxes, on average, by $701,885 - a difference of nearly $1 million." Washington Post via Crooks & Liars

I can only hope more people pay attention to this.

Typical member of the Democrat party engaging in class warfare. Back in my day, my friends, we just threw spitballs and beat freshman senseless.

I'm John McNasty and I approved this message.

I'm glad Obama addressed the fallacy of trickle-down/voodoo economics in his speech last night.

It was very interesting to watch repub pundits completely mischaracterizing what Obama said, on just about every topic, but particularly on taxes.

Dguzman: I know! The press has certainly ignored it.

Randal Graves: I'm gonna tell Dean Wormer that you are a big bully!

Comrade Kevin: Yes, he addressed many important issues. Yay!

Jess Wundrun: It's a GOP feeding frenzy of spin!

Senator McGruff: "Taxing the Rich
?!?! That's class warfare! If the poor don't want to be taxed why don't they just become rich like us!"
