Obama plans on closing the loopholes that those who make over $250,000 per year. For many years, tax breaks and loopholes have been given to those
that are wealthy, while those of us on the lower end have seen no real tax relief. His tax proposals are aimed to make the wealthy pay their fair
share. Basically, the more you make, the more you pay. Someone in your (and my) position would tend to benefit from this. Personally, I'm in favor
of a straight percentage with no deductions for everyone, but that's never gonna happen. So between the two, I'd rather have the loopholes closed
for the rich. Since I've read your results on the issues thread, and you are a Constitutionalist, you need to look very closely who the Republican
party really panders to on the issues of taxes. Trickle down just doesn't work and it's just unfair to those on who's backs the rich became rich.
If your big issue is taxes this election cycle, McCain is not your man! There is no perfect party or perfect candidate, you just have to figure out
who's the best candidate for that time. Overall, Democrats are good for the economy and Republicans are good for foreign policy. I say that as
someone who has been through almost 30 years of voting. I voted for Reagan because he was the right candidate for that time. Right now, we need a
good candidate for the economy. It's never good to keep one party in power for too long, and it's time for a change. Four to eight years from now,
I might feel a little more to the right, but right now, I'm feeling a little more to the left.
