    Obama's, or McCains?









    It really depends on where you are on the poor to wealthy continuum: If your income exceeds $600,000 a year, then you'd like McCain's tax proposal best. If you're under $250,000 then Obamas would help you more.

    Of course, there is the question of whether it is fair to ask wealthy citizens to pay more, where you stand on redistribution of wealth and whether the tax proposals actually are such a redistribution, whether you subscribe to the trickle down theory, and of course, which proposal would exacerbate the deficit most.

    It seems that neither candidate is really serious about a balanced budget.

    Here is the rest of the story.

    No - it REALLY depends on whether you are stupid or understand economics. The real dichotomy is:

    Do you want the wealthy looted to put money int the hands of Obama's targeted boondoggles and other favored special interests, or

    Do you want to leave money in the hands of the people who create private sector jobs?

    Mccain's plan is better over the long run. Since he'd cut business taxes, you'd see an increase in wages and jobs. Plus there's the plain old logic of "why punish excellence?"

    NONE OF THE ABOVE!

    Mike Huckabee had the best option with the FairTax!

    Probably McCains because Barry's lying about his.

    Obama's plan is basically another stimulus... Bush just did one, and it failed.
