First I want to distinguish between the Republican politicians/political machinery and the US citizenry that defines themselves as Republicans.
There are many honest Republicans that value truth above agenda, but not the Republicans working to get McCain elected!
Independent groups and the media agree that McCain is at best distorting the truth and being misleading when it comes to claims about Obama’s tax
plans. Most of us would just call it lying.
Let’s start with some analysis of what each candidates tax plans mean. This is a link to an article that has a chart that breaks it down.
On to JUST A FEW OF THE LIES.
The republican/McCain machinery claims it and naive followers take it to the masses via the internet, like here on ATS.
For those that are unwilling to actually read the facts, let me some up the consensus of any objective analysis of the tax plans..
McCain’s tax plans favor the wealthy, Obama’s plan is favors everybody else.
Republicans claim Obama "voted 94 times for higher taxes." But their count is inflated and misleading.
The McCain campaign falsely claims that Obama voted to raise income taxes on individuals earning "as little as $32,000 per year."
McCain's Small-Business Bunk
He claims 23 million small-business owners would pay higher tax rates under Obama. He's wrong. The vast majority would see no change, and many would
get a cut.
There are tons of comparisons of their tax policy to be found, just do an internet search for "facts comparison taxes Obama McCain"
So how about it Obama bashers? Care to debate an GENUINE ISSUE?
