Comparing Obama and McCain’s Tax Proposals

August 30, 2008 at 3:30 AM 3 comments

Here’s a brief snapshot of the differences between Obama and McCain’s tax proposals. Since I arrived at the beach last weekend there has been very little time to watch TV or weed through the Internet articles on the Democratic National Convention. I did catch a glimpse of McCain’s running mate Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight on CNN. Add that VP choice to Obama’s VP choice of Joe Biden, and it’s easy to see that this is going to be a very interesting election.

I’m surprised by how little negative rhetoric has been used against McCain. Even Bill Clinton had good things to say about him at the DNC. I found this article about McCain’s bipartisanship particularly interesting, perhaps crossing the party lines has found McCain more supporters than naysayers.

** This article provides further analysis of the candidate’s tax proposals.

    I wonder if the apparent reticence to hit McCain hard leads from his personal record of military service? I hope not. I will say that McCain made an interesting choice for a running mate, but at this point Romney has to be wondering what exactly he did to become persona non grata in the GOP. I don’t think either VP choice gives their party any iron-clad insurance of victory at this point…

    @Jerry: Regarding the choices for the VP’s ,i think Obama made a better decision.The irony is that McCain is now picking a VP to match the biggest opposition from the Republicans to reduce the av age. Let the best man win- thats all we need in America now. Remember think about your savings as you invest in politics..Go ask Mc Cain
